Members attending are asked to stay off walkways to set up and paint out of consideration of the “paying guests”.

Come join us for a fun filled day of sketching and painting at beautiful Houmas House Estate. Located between Baton Rouge and New Orleans at 40136 Highway 942, Darrow, the Houmas House Estate allows visitors to experience the life on a sugarcane plantation in the 1800’s. There is a reason this Estate is called the “Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road”, the mansion has been restored to the antebellum era, reflecting the opulence and wealth this sugarcane farm boasted in the 1880’s.  The gardens are expansive and the most exquisite in all of Plantation Country. Three restaurants have captured attention of food critics nationwide and have been voted some of the top places to dine in the country.

Hope to see you there!
