Guided Group Tours
LA Art Tours specializes in small group guided walking tours that go off the beaten path. Anyone can wander galleries sandwiched between boutiques and salons in Beverly Hills. Anyone can go to massive Artwalk and jostle with crowds of thousands for a peek at a few paintings.
We take a different approach.
We take you into the lofts, studios, and creative art spaces of artists all over the Los Angeles region. We bring you up close and personal to urban art. We bring you special behind-the-scenes glimpses of lesser known galleries that are off the beaten path. And we arrange occasional art adventures that defy description!
Let us be your guide
Yes, you can go hit all the local gallery openings and jostle for space as you stare at the static artwork. Or wander around town looking for hidden art spaces equipped with a smart phone, Google, and a map app. And you might have some luck. But once you start trying to walk into artist’s lofts unannounced, you will find your welcome less than cordial (not always…but be extra careful around artists who eagerly welcome in total strangers… you might become their next piece of art.)
So let us wander around town getting uncordial welcomes, while we scout for new artistic adventures. Then you can relax, and let our knowledgeable guides give you the awesome access into the lives and work of artists you would normally never get to experience.
Fun. Informative. Unique.
