COACHING & CLASSES
Art is a tool to discover more about ourselves and each other deepening our understanding as we relate to the world. Everyone has the ability to express themselves through art.
The act of creative expression and play builds confidence and self-esteem.
Art is freedom! It allows us to explore, experiment, and follow our intuition. I offer a friendly, peaceful environment where we can comfortably try new things, speak, and embrace our truths. We stretch our minds in ways we may never have imagined. In the art process we rise above obstacles, transform negativity, and become resourceful. These creative problem-solving skills transfer in all parts of our life. The journey is just as important as the destination.
In addition to creative workshops and the #Marks4TheirLives global art initiative, I offer engaging and inspiring school presentations, personal and professional development workshops, and keynotes.
Please feel free to call with any questions.

"His time with you is an amazing opportunity to get lost in perspective and surroundings.'
Adam Lucks/ Parent
"You have shown me that art is not just about drawing something onto a piece of paper. It is about much, much more. From you I have learned that art is about telling a story; about releasing your emotions and expressing your feelings. It has given me a completely new perspective and a deeper connection to my artwork. I look forward to sessions with you each and every week because I always know that I will come out of it feeling lighter and happier. I learn so much about myself when I am with you and I look up to you so much. You are a spectacular teacher and person. I am so grateful that we have come into each other’s lives!!

"We learned so much from each other and I grew up in my childhood with a very special person as my mentor. Both of us have been through hell and back in life and art has always been there to help us along the way and take our minds off the bad things. Thank you for everything you did for me and for your Posnack students, you had a huge impact on my life and my interest in architecture that will last a lifetime."

My daughter & her friend keep talking about how much fun their lesson was at Lori's studio. There's an abundance of creativity, play, acceptance, joy, & peace. My daughter stopped going to school because she was being bullied. These lessons have done wonders for her well-being & she looks forward to them each week. They do guided meditation and laugh!! It's more than just art - there's healing & love - good vibes everywhere!!! I'm so thankful
