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.

    1. Larysa, good morning–

      Lafayette Studio charges $27.50 an hour for using the space to teach a class. This includes 30 minutes on either side of the designated class time for setup and cleanup, which is not charged but belongs to that teacher. The typical class is scheduled for 3 hours = $82.50 x 8 classes (a typical number of sessions per quarter) = $660.00 for the quarter. Each instructor is given a small rolling cart in which to store art materials, plus a (roughly) 36′ x 48″ shelf for larger (mostly flat) items.

      Thank you for your inquiry, and Happy New Year!
