About Laura

I am a recent college graduate from Watkins College of Art, Design, and film, who has a knack for making books and alternative ways of making printed images.

My degree is in Photography, but I dabble in many ways of creating art. Throughout my college career, I brainstorming and critiquing with one individual or many other students was the most helpful, engaging, and thought-provoking feedback that helped me learn and grow as a person as well as an artist. Needless to say, I have a critical thinking approach to teaching based on discussion, demonstration, action and mild critique. Depending on what the student wants to learn, I can instruct on the technical aspects of photography, either film or digital image making; using various assignments to highlight new understandings of basic camera mechanics like ISO, aperature, and shutter speed. Also, how to use external lighting to enhance your images. I can instruct on Photoshop and Lightroom software editing and basic retouching skills. I can instruct on alternative processes of printmaking, as well as, teach many ways to make books through several binding techniques.

I would love to hone my teaching skills by collaborating and sharing what I've learned in school with a willing and energetic individual. I'm an open minded, driven, and independent person who's excepting of all people, which is just another way of saying that I get along with a wide range of personalities. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you might have for me. I'm excited to help you develop your art practice.
