Welcome to Lafayette Studio

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.

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.

  1. Hi, I’m looking for an art instructor who does private lessons at the students “home”. My father is in assisted living and has no way to go to a studio. He started painting after his first stroke and continued after his second. He hasn’t painted in about 3 years, but has expressed an interest in it again. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Jill,
      Just saw your comment, sorry for the slow reply! I am not the most savvy of website managers.
      We have drop in on Thursday afternoons, Tuesday nights (currently, will be changing in April), and some Sundays. Sign up for our email blasts and you will get notifications about the Sunday events.

  2. As I was browsing your site – especially the well-written “Dead Artists” feature, I passed an article about encouraging artists and the terrible dearth of public school art education. I could not find it again, and as the child of 2 professional artists and myself a school teacher, i wanded to excerpt it ans save it. I hope you can connect me back up!
