Fredrick Guess Studio
With summer coming, Fredrick Guess has set new dates for the much loved workshops he hosts in his French Quarter gallery. The fact that nearly everyone who has ever taken painting instruction from Guess returns attests to his ability to enlighten, motivate and guide students in a fun and uplifting way. If you’ve never painted before, here is an opportunity for you to experience all that he has to offer. With the guidance of Fredrick Guess, you learn to not only see the world in a whole new manner, but to find ways of self-expression such as you’ve never imagined. For experienced painters, Guess offers insight into methods and techniques that only he can deliver. Don’t hesitate to make your reservations, because these highly demanded workshops always fill quickly!

The dates Fredrick Guess has chosen for the next Color Your World are:

July 18th-22nd
August 15th-19th


Guess uses his gifts and knowledge to draw the muse out of every participant. He begins with lessons on the blending of the color wheel and the qualities imbued in each hue, shade, tint and tone, including how colors affect each other. He then leads the workshop participants into understanding how to achieve effective light and shadow on canvas, and how to achieve good composition in subject matter. From there, Guess helps each individual to develop his or her own style and project their personality into their work.

Doors open at 9:00 a.m. and Guess will be there until about 4:00 p.m. Guess will guide participants through all aspects of introductory painting including setting up a color wheel and palette, composing an image for depth and balance, capturing the desired ambience and so much more. The workshop fee is $90 per day plus materials. Materials such as paint, brushes and canvases can either be ordered through us or purchased on your own. Participants may also purchase materials on an as needed basis for daily use for only $40 and they may choose whichever day(s) are best for their schedules..

For more information, please contact us at 504 251-4644 or and we will be happy to work with you.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Fredrick Guess' generosity is exemplified in his donations to charities and non-profits. On average, his donated paintings generate over $25,000 annually for organizations ranging from PBS and the American Cancer Society to Save Our Cemeteries and Lazarus House, to name a few. In 2006, Guess called together several friends to do a fundraiser for the Musicians' Village being built by Habitat for Humanity. That event alone raised around $27,000.
