Welcome to The Barn!
The Big Red Barn Creative Arts Center offers activities, classes, and events for children of all ages. Started in 2009, the center's main focus is to nurture young imaginations and provide children with a fun place to learn, create, and play.
Oddly enough, The Big Red Barn isn't a barn at all! It takes its name from its original location on Weinberger Road. At The Big Red Barn, children are encouraged to get their hands messy, to not worry about getting paint on the table, and to make their art as individual as they are.
Some of our offerings include: Paint & Play Mom's Day Out, Art Explorers Art Class, Sew Sweet Sewing Class, Starry Artsy Kids' Night Out, Imagine! Summer Art Camp, Saturday Art Camps, Birthday Parties, and more. Check out our upcoming events here!
Students enrolled in art classes at The Big Red Barn participate in our Show & Share Kids' Art Fair, offered in conjunction with Ponchatoula Trade Days in the Spring and Fall. Participating in the fair gives young artists the opportunity to present their work to friends, family, and the community, and provides the artists with a great feeling of pride and ownership. Be sure to stop by and check it out during Trade Days!
The Big Red Barn is run by Melissa Durel-Porter, who has worked with children in a variety of settings for over 20 years.
