The grounds of A Studio in the Woods are presented to the resident artist in their most pristine condition. The founders have intruded as little as possible to respectfully create spaces for living, making, presenting, writing and contemplating. Stressful noise and distraction are at a minimum though our 7.66 acres of bottomland hardwood forest are within the city limits of New Orleans and on the banks of one of the greatest waterways in the world. There are spots to sit and contemplate near soil upon which a human foot has not trod for more than 30 years. Animals and plants have been likewise respected. Should this respect be maintained for the next 50 to 75 years, this forest will have regained its original state. It is our firm purpose that this state will be achieved.
