WHO WE ARE
Led by Nancy Hirsch Lassen and Jim Gambill, PaintSpace NOLA is a creative space for artists to collaborate, learn, and exchange ideas. We provide a space for unlimited creativity for the city of New Orleans by hosting a vibrant, talented, engaged community of artists with many gifted teachers and students, alike. We bring together the best instructors from all corners of the globe to inspire as many creatives as possible.
Our studio space is a spacious, newly renovated oasis for artists looking to take their skills to the next level, or learn a new skill. With artists' needs and preferences in mind, we’ve designed a space that is functional, inviting and has easy access for setting up supplies, loading and unloading vehicles. We offer 8’ of wall space per student, a long folding table, a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. A restroom with shower and a secluded courtyard for creative conversations and meals outdoors sets PaintSpace NOLA apart.
It brings us pleasure to share our city, our culture, and our talent with those who come here to teach and learn. Close-knit, giving, kind and engaging, our art community here is like no other - and we are eager to grow our circle of friends.
