New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts

spring semester January 15 - May 5

Open Studios - Spring 2018

Our open studios offer opportunities to practice drawing  and painting the human figure from a live model in a welcoming and respectful atmosphere. The studios take place in our 3rd-floor atelier at 5256 Magazine Street, offering north light during daylight hours and ample artificial lighting at night. The Academy provides plenty of easels, drawing benches and chairs. Participants bring their own preferred art supplies. Experienced monitors ensure that our studios are run at a high standard.

All are welcome: this is where experienced artists and art students at all levels mingle. You do not need to be enrolled in classes to participate.

There is no instruction at these studios.

Open studios only meet during the semester.
