Practicing Artist of 7 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. Painting is an activity that allows for you to put on canvas whatever landscape, image or emotion you wish to portray. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!

About Lauren W.

Hi I’m Lauren! I have been involved in the arts for 8 years now! I graduated May 2020 from the College of Saint Benedict with a bachelors degree in Art and Psychology. One of my goals is to spread the therapeutic attributes of art to those I cross paths with.

I started becoming artistic in high school when I took my first painting class. I fell in love with art soon after that class ended and took drawing, photography, ceramics and eventually an independent study in art before I moved on to college.

It followed me into the College of Saint Benedict where I learned how to paint realistic portraits of people and animals to still-life object paintings. I am very fond on painting realistically but always branch out to stay creative and expressive! I also love drawing, drawing with charcoal is very messy but so fun! Ask me about reductive charcoal drawings, these are my favorite. Lastly, I am extremely fond of pottery. If I could teach pottery through this platform I would!

Psychology is an interest of mine because I love working with people. I originally thought I would become an art therapist because I truly think art can ease and heal many things given the right atmosphere and attitude! Art is so powerful! Now my hope is to bring art to people in the same way but in less of a medical setting but rather in a classroom atmosphere or the comfort of your own home!

I do prefer either online lessons or traveling to you because my studio space is limited. Also having your own materials for an online lesson will be required, if we meet in person I can bring materials if needed. Most clients wish to use their own based on their wishes for what they want to create. If you want to get creative and enjoy learning in a relaxing environment then you are in the right place!

My son had a wonderful fist lesson with Lauren.
She had interactive reading material prepared for his learning level prior to the lesson, and all went very well.
We will request weekly lessons with her this summer!
