What our Students  are saying

Jenn Williamson

This post is to express my gratitude to Robert (Bob) Barrett, the owner of  “Neighbourhood Art School” in Walnut Grove, Langley. “Bob, you were a mentor to me at critical time in my journey as an artist.

Without your guidance & a sincere willingness to invest time & energy into me, I would not be where I am today!  Thankyou!” The Neighbourhood Art School is a place where artists of any level can go to build upon & refine their skills, as well as find amazing instructors! (Bob, Carmel & Candice to name a few) I will always consider this wonderful place as the ‘launching pad’ to my career as a professional artist.

Thank you, Bob, for being so willing to share your gifts with me & all your students….you are a true Gem :0)   If you have a minute to visit the School’s website & check out the fabulous offering of classes, you won’t be disappointed.
