Gerbrandt was an instructor at the Ottawa School of Art (OSA) for over 32 years and was responsible for setting up its Printmaking Studio named after him. He encouraged students to enjoy learning and to develop their creative skills. From 1975-84 and in 1991 he represented the instructors on the Board of Directors of the School. In 2011, in remembrance of his contribution to the school, OSA established and continues to seek support for an annual Memorial Scholarship in Printmaking which honours his many years as an influential, devoted teacher and passionate printmaker.
