Gabriel runs Gabriel’s Art Kids Preschool and After School Arts, at 1415 Dupont St., in Bellingham. She has students — from preschool through adults — in public schools, community centers and at her own classes. She has been a teaching artist with Allied Arts for more than seven years, and has taught toddler and after-school classes at Whatcom Museum, and volunteered to teach art to children with Down syndrome.
