Enjoyed a tour through the Old School House in Qualicum Beach ... a variety of art from glass and jewellery to oil and watercolour paintings... often the artists are there painting while touring the gallery.

terrific use of an old schoolhouse to house arts works and artists working. there are always some artists creating in parts of this building..sculpting, painting or making jewelry. prices are reasonable and variety is on display. i spent too much money.

Being able to talk to some of the resident artists is refreshing and enjoyable. From painters and jewellers to friendly volunteer staff - it was a great place to visit.
