About the Blue Easel Club
The Blue Easel Club, founded in 2009 by Carol Peebles, is rooted in the philosophy that in order to develop as an artist, one cannot just study technique, one must live the life of an artist. Our year-round workshops and classes are frequented with music, inspirational readings, guest speakers, lunch or dinner and more.
Classes are held at Carol's private studio, located in the Historic Uptown District of New Orleans, LA. Her instruction is based in the time tested approach of observational drawing to study nature, utilizing dry media.
Along with the traditional Atelier studies of figure and portrait, the Blue Easel Club has broadened the scope of life drawing to include professional ballerinas, musicians, burlesque dancers, boxers, and much more.
All levels are welcome, beginners work alongside professionals, lessons adapting to each member’s needs.
