Looking for something new to peak your interest and get you excited?  Want to make new friends while tapping into your inner creativity?  We’ve got the answer at PaintSpace NOLA!   

Billie Bourgeois is a supremely talented artist who’s been teaching art for the past 50 years!   She’s gifted, generous, knowledgeable, fun, and can bring out the best in a newbie painter or the most seasoned! 

Have fun making marks with unconventional tools like old credit cards, coffee filters, Manila folders, whatever is at hand, and of course, Billie will teach the in’s and out’s of acrylic paints.   Billie uses a limited palette, so you’ll learn to mix an endless number of colors with just 3 reds, 3 blues, 3 yellows, black and white. And she'll guide you all the way! 

Learn about monoprints, hand-cut stenciling and collaging, and work from small to larger work.
