It’s a new endeavour, but we are growing and learning

These two ladies are spearheading our pottery program. Judy Gerber, an incredibly gifted instructors, has been working round the clock to organize every aspect of things. On her right is GBAC board member Kelli Phillips, who has been invaluable every step of the way – even to the point of painting the walls of the studio! This program quite simply would not be possible without these two.

We are very excited to see our newly renovated pottery studio taking shape!

To help celebrate 25 years of Paint Ontario, the Pottery Program of the Grand Bend Youth Art Centre is constructing a pottery Spring Tulip Garden. The colourful exhibition of hand painted tulips will be on display at the Lambton County Museum during Paint Ontario beginning May 7th 2021.

Thank you to our schools Huron Central PS, Stephen Central PS, Grand Bend PS, Kinwood PS, Bosanquet Central PS, North Lambton Secondary School, community members and groups for participating. Special thanks to Mayor Bill and Ginger Weber for your support.
