Brooklyn Pin Up School was co-founded by Anna Patin and Renee DiDio.


Already striving to create and foster the Brooklyn pin up scene prior to opening Brooklyn Pin Up School, Anna Patin is the owner/photographer at Lucy La Riot, an exclusively retro photostudio, and Renee DiDio is the owner of SlapBack, a neo-vintage boutique.


Anna and Renee hosted their first Pin Up 101 class for beginners in October 2014.  Since then, they have been selling out classes and working to create a comfortable space for vintage lovers to meet and learn together.


Our classes cover all things retro, it began with our classic Pin Up 101 class for beginners, and is constantly growing and evolving to include advanced classes and workshops.






All classes are held at Lucy La Riot Studio

635 Lorimer Street Brooklyn NY 11211
