They also offer a variety of camps and classes including: paint and sip wine glass painting, advanced beginner crochet classes, and they even value the youngest artists with their preschool art shows! Owner Susan L. Greig has a story worth hearing. Although she’s been painting, sketching and writing for over 3 decades, she didn’t consider herself a fine art painter. After losing her eldest daughter to a rare incurable brain disease, she accepted a job at Children’s Hospital in 2005, which focused on making things better at the hospital for patients and families.  Greig writes, “For years I’ve kept a list of items that I want to do before I kick the bucket-a bucket list.  #239 kept staring at me from the page “Quit my job at the hospital to paint & write full-time… Fast forward through a business plan, reaching out to a couple of mentors, watching a lot of TED talks, finding grants and financing & selecting a location, to taking the big leap and giving my notice. It’s been a whirlwind but as my husband will tell you once I decide on something there’s no stopping me!  On March 1, 2013 we took possession of this 5600 square foot warehouse and after 3 months of renovations opened the doors on June 8.  We are now a community of artists and New Westminster’s premier private art studio & gallery.” 100 Braid St Studios Gallery also supports individuals with atypical physical and cognitive abilities in an inclusive and supportive environment. Artism is geared for anyone 3 years old and up, all the way into adulthood for those who are affected with autism, Downs Syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, ODD and FASD.
