Many factors contribute to New Orleans' magic, but our artists truly set the city apart from the rest. Experience the joy of art with your family through colorful, interactive experiences.
When abstract artist Abigail Reller first began painting with her daughter a few years ago, she loved the result. The New Orleans native merged her two passions—art and children—together into The Grey Collaborative.
Families bring their kids to Reller's Metairie studio for a 45-minute session, where she works with them to create colorful and textured base layers.
Clients can expect a calm, fun environment, where children will learn while creating. "After their session, I work on and adjust the piece to make it a high-end piece of art—beautiful enough to hang in their home!"

New Orleans' first experiential pop-up opens this month and audiences of all ages are sure to love the stimulating stroll dedicated to the Crescent City.
The 5,400-square foot space contains the work of 20 artists featured in 12 rooms, all celebrating "the iconic art, music, food, and theatrics of the city."
The project was founded by Jonny Liss and Chad Smith, two local Bywater residents, in creative partnership with Where Y'Art. Music is curated by local legend George Porter, Jr. and a percentage of JAMNOLA's proceeds will be donated back to New Orleans charity partners Trombone Shorty Foundation and Feed the Second Line.
Children 2 and under are free, and kids ages 3-12 are $20. Children under 3 are not required to wear masks. Louisiana residents can receive 15% off tickets through the Fall with promo code NOLALOVE. Families can save up to 15% when you book a private tour for six.
JAMNOLA is located at 2832 Royal Street | jamnola.com
