I'm a full time visual artist with 30+ years of experience in drawing, painting, illustration and other media. I take the time to personlize my art lessons to meet the creativity, skill level and artistic needs of each student so they can get the most out of the lessons. My work has been exhibitied in galleries and other venues for over 30 years and I've sold to privte collectors, businesses and more so I have the passion and skills to help others grow their creativity.

Lauren has gone out of her way to get to know me both personally and professionally so that she can better provide inspiration. She's very constructive with criticism and provides the instruction needed to improve skills. In general, she's very kindhearted and fun to work with, easing the frustrations that come along with perfecting artistic skills. Lauren is very good at teaching online, so definitely consider her no matter where you live.
Lauren is very nice and a good communicator cordially and professionally. Her explanations on techniques of how to better understand what I need to do to get the desire results of my artwork is great. She is also very good at progression for my current art level which is challenging but what is expected from a good teacher.
Lauren certainly knows how to teach. I have learned so much in a short period of time. She encourages individual creativity and has a large knowledge base.
Lauren is patient, giving, knowledgeable, and just a lovely person to know. As a teacher, she is within her normal personality parameters which makes her absolutely superb teacher. Can't recommend her highly enough.
First we have a quick phone chat to discuss what theyw ant to get out of the lessons, if they have a specific medium or style they want to work with, their availability, etc. Then I schedule their 1st lesson or 2....most students come once for an hour, every other week but other options are available. I ask them to pre-pay for the 1st 2 lessons then they pay as they go. I'll provide some basic supplies and will give them a print out of the basic lesson plan and the supplies they'll need to bring. I ask for at least 24 hours notice for any cancelations ot rescheduling....I charge a $20 fee for last minute cancels unless they reschedule the lesson within the next 1-3 days.
