Are you curious about color theory and the Impressionist’s fascinating use of color? Or would you like to know how to create three-dimensionality in a drawing, how to successfully organize elements in a composition, or how to find a good motif for a picture? Then come take art lessons in a private setting at Atelier Mimi in Uptown New Orleans.

We offer group and private classes 
for both children and adults. 

At Atelier Mimi, we look at nature, the city, and our immediate surroundings for inspiration. Students get to create realistic as well as abstract works of art.

For Adults

Enjoy learning from a local artist and experienced college teacher about the greatest masters in the history of art and how to apply their techniques to your own work. 

One-on-one or in small groups of up to four students, you will explore your own artistic potential by learning from other artists, by practicing how to look at your environment with an artist’s eye, and by playing with techniques that will help you spur your imagination. 

If you are unvaccinated at this time, we kindly ask that you continue to practice social distancing and wear a face covering during class.

For Children and Teenagers

Is your child enthusiastic about arts and crafts, drawing and painting? Are you looking for a new activity for your kids that encourages creative expression?

On location sketching

We offer a variety of course topics geared towards a young audience, such as jungle, ocean, beach, animals, family, or self portrait. Your children get to work in different techniques including painting, drawing, printmaking, as well as arts and crafts. The latter are lots of fun and very popular among young children.

For booking inquiries about private or group art lessons, please call or email us.
