About Gabriola Palette People

 'Gabriola Palette People' is an informal art group that was formed many years ago to provide an inclusive and creative art environment where members come together regularly to develop their artistic skills. Members get together once or twice weekly at the Rollo Centre on Gabriola to create art using watercolour, acrylic, oil paints or mixed media. 

The objectives of the 'Palette People' art group are to:

  • Provide an opportunity for members to meet and practice their visual art skills.
  • Ensure that all members enjoy this association in an inclusive, safe and respectful environment.
  • Provide workshops at a reasonable fee.
  • Encourage members at all levels of skill to increase their potential.
  • Provide opportunities for members to show their work.
Eligibility and Fees:
  • It is not necessary to be a senior to be a member of Palette People.
  • All levels of artists are welcome, but note that no instruction is provided outside of workshops held a couple of times a year.
  • The annual fee is $20.
  • Members must also become members of the Gabriola Senior Citizens’ Association which requires an annual fee for use of the Rollo Centre, plus an additional drop-in fee of $2 for every session you attend.
  •  Members are asked to attend a monthly meeting that is held on the first Tuesday of each month.

A members-only online community is available through Facebook:
