Classes & Workshops

Learn to Letter (and Illustrate) with Ren!

I adore teaching!! It’s my first love, as I have a degree in Art Education and I’ve been instructing children since I was a teenager (picture a 16-year-0ld on skis teaching preschoolers on tiny skis — madness!). I am so grateful that I am able to marry my passions, lettering and teaching, by hosting workshops in Eastern Pennsylvania!

If you join me for class, there’s one thing you need to understand — these workshops are not for the faint of heart (or hand). This is ART CLASS! While it’s a ton of fun, and with my goofy humor there are guaranteed to be laughs, please be aware that I will be putting you to (fun-filled) work. Luckily, it will all be worth it, as you’ll walk away with newly learned skills and a new obsession!

Lauren is a talented artist but also has the ability to translate her love for her craft to teach it to others. I thoroughly enjoyed her Intro to Brush Lettering workshop and I'm looking forward to the next level!
