Lafayette Studio is dedicated to creating a harmonious and pleasant place for artists to teach, learn and work. We serve as a space for professional artists to teach independently, for art students to expand their knowledge and abilities at their own pace, and a place for working artists at all levels to work and build a lasting community.
fine art classes
The pursuit of art is both personal and communal; our classes provide a solid foundation for people just at the beginning of their art sojourn, and a continuing support system as art student develops into artist. Art skills and techniques are emphasized, with the deep understanding that the goal of acquiring these skills is to nourish individual style and taste.
art studio/classroom rental
Our space is available to rent as a central location for private artist groups, art instructors and art workshops. Lafayette Studio is a fully stocked fine art studio for painting and drawing instruction and practice, complete with lighting, easels, tables, model stand, cleaning station, coffee/bottled water.
For artists who want a studio environment away from home, Lafayette Studio is easy to reach and enjoyable to work in any time of the day or night.
Lafayette Studio is sponsored by Lamorinda Arts Alliance, which also sponsors the Lafayette Gallery and Moraga Art Gallery. We enthusiastically recommend that artists join the alliance; they offer a large community of local artists, monthly art talks and happenings, an informative newsletter and a yearly Open Studios in the Lamorinda/Walnut Creek area.
