Susan Lee has been an art educator for almost twenty years. She worked for a prominent private art studio for almost a decade before starting up her own art practice in Los Angeles, teaching privately at various locations throughout the city. Her art journey took her to China for over a year as she taught in Beijing, Panjin, Nanjing and other locations. Moving to New Orleans in 2020, she has finally opened her own studio in Harahan in 2023 to teach fine art and traditional art techniques to both children and adult.

Trained as an Impressionist oil painter, Susan has taken her training and focused on portraiture as her speciality. She has also created her own graphic novel, "Wraith of Love", currently working on the second issue. She also wrote and illustrated "The Buddha Cat," an adult children's book dedicated to her cat, Indiana Jones.

Studio Policies

Studio time is precious. If you know ahead of time that you or your child will miss their class for any reason, please let us know in writing only by emailing:  We are very busy during class hours and often don't remember if you tell us in person, so please make sure we see your message in our inbox. We are always appreciative when you are able to give us at least 24 hours notice, so we can offer your spot to someone else for make-up. 

We do understand that life happens, so if you or your child wakes up sick on their class day, please let us know before class starts. We MUST be informed if you or your child will be out ahead of their scheduled class to receive a make-up. No exceptions! No shows = no make-ups!! 

We do not issue refunds, or studio credits, so it’s important to plan ahead. Please know, we’ll always do our best to be fair, understanding, and to kindly work with you, as every situation is unique. No tuition refunds or credits are given because of missed classes. Only one make-up class will be granted in a calendar month. Make-up classes must be booked within 30 days and can only be used while you or your child is a current, registered student. We do not bank them if your child takes a break from classes and they can not be used in lieu of tuition. We will do our best to accommodate your schedule request.


If you sign up as a recurring monthly subscription, we require 7 days notice prior to the end of the current month to cancel your on-going class tuition or place it on hold. We appreciate this notice so we can fill the empty spot with a new student. Cancellations must be in writing only and emailed to Please put your name or your child's name and "class cancellation" in the subject. Failure to provide 7 days notice will result in a non-refundable charge for the upcoming month. Class spaces are non-transferable.
