About this pro

With over ten years of teahcing experience with all ages, my art lessons cater to the needs, interests, and goals of my students. I create individualized lesson plans that connect with students on a personal level. Each lesson is a unique experience that helps students learn valuable art skills that can be applied in and out of the classroom! I also strive to provide the support and passion necessary to create a "safe space" for students to try new things, take risks, and grow their skills. 

I absolutely love seeing my students grow. Whether that growth is shown in a work of art, a small sketchbook piece, or even in their self-confidence, I strive to help each student on their unique path to becoming an artist. Helping people comes naturally to me, and I couldn't think of a more rewarding way to help others than through teaching art!

    Mrs. Holtzer is the best art teacher I've ever had. She was constantly positive, cheerful, and encouraging. She was always professional but made me feel comfortable to come to her with anything I was having trouble with. I knew I could depend on her for advice and a push in the right direction without her doing all the work for me. With her help, I stepped out of my comfort zone and experimented with all different kinds of media, and she gave me the confidence I needed to excel and succeed in what I'm passionate about.

    Lauren Holtzer knew what to do to push me and challenge me in order to Be the best I could. She knew what techniques work best for me and allowed a lot of creative freedom whenever a project was given. She let me know what I could work on and ultimately led me to become a better artist in the fact that she not only told me, but showed me what I could do to improve in my skills. She is a very personable person and values her connections with her students and made sure I was improving and producing the best work I could.

    I have only been a student of hers for a little less than a year but it feels like ive been working with her for so much longer than that! She is very understanding and cooperative with my ideas regarding art and can effortlessly explain concepts that are typically difficult for others to convey, and i think that is what makes her an awesome teacher.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start by getting to know my student by talking with them about their interests, skills, and goals. After gathering this information, I am able to come up with an individualized lesson plan that caters to the student's interests and overall growth as an artist. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a certified P-12 Art Educator. I am Fine Arts Department Head as well as a Visual Arts teacher at Sequoyah High School.

My degree from the University of Georgia has well prepared me to share my passion for art with others. I've been teaching art to all ages for over ten years, and I specialize in Drawing, Painting, and Design. 

In addition to teaching art, I also create my own art and work with clients to make custom commission pieces. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $60 for a 60 minute lesson. This includes basic art supplies and a studio space for the student to create art freely, with no worries about making a mess! The only thing required for a student to bring is a sketchbook. 


How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching art when I was in college. During this time, I worked at many art camps with students of all ages. I also taught adult painting classes, which I found to be so much fun!

I've been teaching in a formal educational setting for the last seven years at two high schools in Georgia. I've enjoyed my time working with high school students, but I also love working with younger students and adults. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with elementary, middle, and high school students. I have also worked with adults of all ages. I enjoy working with anybody who has an interest in learning more about art!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently submitted one of my student's artworks into a prestigious art show in Atlanta, and the student's piece was selected out of 800+ submissions! The show will feature about 150 student artworks and will be part of the Atlanta Dogwood Festival in Piedmont Park. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise anybody looking to take art lessons to do their research and really find a teacher who they feel comfortable learning from. Taking risks is a huge part of art making, and the right teacher should make a student feel comfortable and ready to try new things. The teacher should also help the student understand that it's ok to not be perfect at something and to have fun along the way. That's what the learning process is all about! 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about what they would like to gain from art lessons. Students should also think about their interests and abilities, and be able to communicate these to a teacher so they can get the most out of art lessons.
