Annie Sloan’s Big Paint Weekend

New Orleans, LA


Annie takes New Orleans! This September Annie and a collection of her favourite Chalk Paint® colleagues are heading to beautiful New Orleans to paint the town every colour of the Chalk Paint® palette.

When & Where

Annie’s Big Paint Weekend is coming to New Orleans, Louisiana. After a long hiatus, Annie will be hosting two jampacked days of demonstrations on September 18th & 19th at the iconic New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute (NOCHI). NOCHI is in the heart of downtown New Orleans with a streetcar stop right outside the front doors.

What & Who

Annie will be joined by a selection of the biggest names in the furniture painting world, including All Shabbed Out, Bushed by Brandy, Jonathon Marc Mendes, Kacha Furniture and Atelier 1966. The workshop has been developed to teach some of the most popular decorative painting techniques, such as marbling, ombre and traditional distressing.
