About the lesson
Support, encouragement and structure are the most vital ingredients for the progression of any creative project. That's why my sessions are tailored to your needs every time, balancing practical tips & demonstrations with theoretical discussions.
Whether you wish to focus on drawing, painting or design, or you are experimenting with a range of mediums, I am happy to support you throughout your creative journey and help you to make the most of your creative potential! You'll learn about the creative process with me, how to reflect on your own work, professional techniques to take your abilities to the next level, and lots more.
All ages and abilities are welcome, and all sessions will take place via Zoom video calls as frequently as you choose (most students opt to meet on a weekly basis). When you book a block of sessions, your first session is free! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Art School Preparation
Art Exam Preparation
Through Edinburgh College, I earned a distinction-grade diploma in art & design. I have appeared as a contestant on Sky Arts' Portrait Artist of the Year 2014 and have had a self-portrait oil painting exhibited in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition 2021, London. I also tutor 4-14-year-olds in English and maths through a renowned tutoring company, so have experience delivering fun and engaging sessions, explaining concepts and methods, and creating a relaxed learning environment. In addition, I hold a 1st-class bachelors and distinction-grade masters degree in English literature and creative writing, respectively, from the University of Stirling.
One of my Superprof students secured a place on the next level of their course under my tutelage. Another gained much-needed confidence to complete their final piece for a school portfolio. All parents praise my communication skills during my sessions with their children, my patience and my enthusiasm.
Perfect! My 13 year old daughter appreciated how Lauren came prepared and made the class educational, interactive and fun.
Perfect! Kind, patient and smiley. Delivers strong skills and makes teaching seem very easy. Very unflappable and nothing is a big deal. Would highly recommend Lauren.
Perfect! Lauren is amazing with my daughter. Lauren not only helped my girl with her art portfolio, but she also tutored her with English and Math to get her ready for her exams. I could see my girl's confidence grew with these subjects even after only a few lessons. I highly recommend Lauren!!!
Perfect! Well structured trial lesson, good presentation and tools. Most importantly, good fun!
Perfect! I love the different techniques we go through every week and they all feel so good to try out.
Perfect! I would like to recommend Lauren. She is a great tutor. My daughters enjoy the lessons with her so much.
Perfect! She is really friendly and nice. She is also really good at drowing
Perfect! Lauren is an excellent art teacher. She prepares her lessons well and my child enjoys learning portraiture art and watercolour painting with her. I have seen a lot of improvement in my child’s work in a short period of time under Lauren’s exceptional guidance. Her lessons are structured in a fun and engaging way, and she is flexible to incorporate the topics that my daughter and I requested into the lessons. I would highly recommend Lauren and i look forward to more classes with her!
- Lauren's response : Angelyn is a keen and inquisitive art student, a quick learner, and always a pleasure to tutor.
Perfect! My daughter was stuck on a piece for her N5 portfolio. Lauren was great, she gave practical advise on the steps to build up the piece whilst giving theory and most importantly giving my daughter confidence in what she was doing. Brilliant!
