“Southampton Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Always stop in when we're in Southampton. The Gallery showcases local artists/craftsmen. The staff are super helpful and knowledgeable. Would love the opportunity to attend art classes but sadly we're only in Southampton for one week every year. And this is one of our must stops.

“art class extravaganza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

Over the years I've taken a variety of courses with the Southampton Art School, and have loved each one. The instructors are friendly, share their expertise professionally, and the overall impression is that one is free to explore what you can do artistically with excellent instruction in a relaxed, open and invitingly beautiful environment. I always leave exhilarated, having enjoyed the pleasure of watching a professional demonstrate hands-on technique and experiencing opportunity to try things myself. Taking a course here is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself for the short time you have available in an environment where you glimpse other possibilities that others are living.

“Artists co-operative, fabulous gift shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

I don't make shopping central to my tourism but this is a gallery that is irresistible. The variety of crafts from local artists is of the best quality ranging from fabrics to jewelry, paintings to pottery and whimsical to precious. If you have time they also offer a variety of courses for adults or children. This is worth travelling to get to!

“A Southampton Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

Nicely located in the heart of Southampton, the gallery offers a beautiful variety of items for looking or purchasing - paintings to pottery, jewellry and more. If you have just a few minutes or an hour, be sure to stop by. The Art School has a long history of offering excellent classes. There is a wide variety to choose from - things for children, youth and adults. Whether you are taking something for the first time or returning to an area of interest, the classes provide plenty of entry points. Plus, they can be a lot of fun! The Art School and Gallery are gems in this terrific town along the shoreline of Lake Huron. Stop by or sign up. It's worth it.

“A Wonderful Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

The gallery is a great place to while away an hour. Beautiful artwork includes paintings, pottery, jewellery and other treasures. The best part is that all the lovely things are also available for purchase.
I've taken several classes in the school, as well. The instructors are top knotch and the range of offerings is huge. Definitely something for everyone.
