Develop Your Creative Expression

Artist Amy Gibbs offers private instruction in the visual arts to adults with any level of experience at her studio, Art Explorium, located in Tillett Gardens on the island of St. Thomas, USVI. Classes are typically two-hour sessions generally focusing on Fundamentals of Painting in a wide variety of media, such as watercolor, acrylic, oil, and alcohol ink. Learn techniques like charcoal drawing, oil pastels, and more. 

Individual classes are based on student interest. Group classes are kept small and focus on a specific theme to ensure that students are getting individual attention. Amy is committed to creating a safe, supportive, and caring environment for students to learn and grow.

“I’m sure I speak for many when I say that working with Amy is a transformational experience. An outstanding teacher who approaches each student as an individual, Amy offers people something so many of us haven’t had before: the freedom to create by focusing on the joy of the process.”
