BREC Art offers programs for all ages at locations across the parish. These hands-on interactive classes and workshops are grounded in true artistic principles and techniques with a dash of craftiness and a whole lot of creativity. All skill levels and ages are welcome.
Art is in motion!
BREC Studio Art Classes offer painting, woodblock printmaking, figure drawing, photography and more with endless opportunities to create, explore and experiment. BREC also offers outlets for children to have some fun, get a little messy and open up their minds to all the creativity, beauty and enrichment around them with camps, classes and Arty Painting Parties.
BREC Art also features Art on the Geaux–a special outreach program that can be customized for your event or group with materials and instruction included. Lessons may include: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, pottery and crafts.
Whether you are looking for a low-cost hobby or a creative outlet, BREC Art has something for you.
