Gallery Information

     
     Thompson's Art Program draws from her numerous professors,advisors,mentors and professional apprenticeships. Her artwork is in many private and corporate art collections throughout the US,Canada, and Europe. There is a great emphasis on a student's individuality and mastery of all the Fine Art materials and techniques. Students study the Masters, observe the still life and motion of the world and then discover their own sense of creativity. Students' work is put on exhibition and her students benefit from the "whole gallery experience" from the design and execution, to having the work framed. The students also have the opportunity to view the works of fellow students during the art exhibitions.There is a preview reception for the artists and their friends and families. The show is open to the public as well during specified hours.
         
Private and semi private lessons with groups of 2-5 are also offered at the gallery or at your location. Private lessons are $25 per hour. Semi- private $20 per student for 2 hours.     

       Alyson Thompson stated, "I have been a professional artist since 1970, but I do not think I truly mastered my profession until I was teaching. A teacher can mold and touch a life forever. As human beings we are a precious work of art. Give yourself a gift that lasts a lifetime and beyond. If you love art, you can learn skills necessary to create a work of art and embark on a wonderful journey."
