Art experiences in the Studio are provided each day and are inspired by our museum’s beautiful and ecologically-rich setting, and the themes and ideas explored in our exhibit galleries.
We celebrate a sense of place in our natural environment within Louisiana, as well as our culinary, architectural, musical, cultural, and historic heritage. Aligning with our dedication to sustainability and climate resiliency, experiences in the studio come to life through innovative, sustainable, and green practices.
The Louisiana Children’s Museum is partnering with emerging artists from across the New Orleans community for our new Artist in Residence program! This is a unique opportunity for locally-based visual artists, musicians, and performers of all kinds to showcase their talents while inviting children and their families to explore, create and collaborate on a proposed creative endeavor across four two-month residencies.
Winter 2022/2023 Artist-in-Residence
Brittani Landry, skilled in painting and drawing, is a native New Orleanian from Algiers. Her paintings are concentrated on women, children, and nature. She enjoys using vibrant and expressive colors in her paintings while incorporating texture using line and wood burning. In her artmaking process, she creates three-dimensional paintings that she describes as “sculptural paintings.” This process allows her to piece her paintings together in a puzzle-like manner and create paintings on a larger scale.
As the LCM Artist-in-Residence, Brittani will share her exploration of building three-dimensional paintings that focus on the use of texture. Over the course of eight weeks, children and their families will participate in a collaborative painting that will illustrate a snapshot of what a child might see during their walk through City Park. Overall, the goal is to encourage children and their parents to use this experience as a time to reflect on their adventures and discoveries in City Park.
