A Gift of Art is celebrating Stage 3 and beyond! After a full summer of Art Camp we are experienced in all the health protocols needed to keep everyone safe, (apart from masks and gloves, thoughtfulness, patience and consideration help a lot!), so you can confidently get involved with our programming again.

In order to whet your appetite, Intro to Art Week will feature several workshops taught by our skilled instructors. Workshops will be held in the Garden and Front Studio. Please email A Gift of Art with any questions or to indicate your interest in attending a specific workshop.

Val KentFrance Art Retreat ~ Terasson France Retreat 2020 cancelled

The France Art Retreat in Terrasson Lavilledieu was postponed to May/June 2021 when it became clear that there was no way that this year would allow us to go anywhere and remain safe. This situation will not last forever and we have great faith that in 2021 we will be able to return to doing and being what we had every intention to do for this year.

For those individuals who had committed to the Trip to paint in the village and along the Vezere River and visit the Lascaux Museum, the Chocolate Factory, the wonderful restaurants, the Jardin Imaginaire, take little boat trips, see the outdoor markets and allow the lovely locations in the Dordogne region fill us with creativity and excitement, we hope you will join us again next year and all will be wonderful and well again.

The Trip funds were promptly returned upon postponement. I hope you will consider joining us again next year.  It will be a different year and a different time. As always every effort will be made to put together the best painting trip ever. Please be well and happy.

For more information,

Please contact Valerie with any questions, 705-944-9444 | |
