Femme Fridays are held on the First Friday of each month from 6:30 - 8:30pm and prices vary depending on the class.

Femme Friday is an art class designed for women* to create art in a safe and supportive environment.  Each month we will host a different guided workshop in our studio, as well as an empowerment exercise with a focus on self-care. 

BYOB! Bring those drinks, girl! Wine, cocktail, sparkling water- whatever your choice, bring it along with you to enjoy while creating. If you forgot though, we got you :) Some wine and beer will be in the studio, or you can grab a drink from our neighbors around the corner at Crown & Anchor!

*All women (cis & trans), adult art-makers, feminists, and friends welcome.

June 2 - Pit Paste & Coloring Night

It's summer in New Orleans, y'all!

In addition to chill coloring book activities, we will also have a workshop in making your own all natural, aluminum- & paraben- free deodorant that you can take home!

Please bring your own *small* jar as well as any essential oil of your choice. We will have one-two options, but if you already have one in mind, please bring with you :)

Pit Paste ingredients, adult coloring books, colored pencils, and watercolor paints will be provided. We will also have some wine and beer, but as always BYOB!
