Welcome, I’m Lauren, a professor in the Department of Graphic Design at La Roche College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Prior to teaching at La Roche some of the places I have taught include: The University of Delaware, East Carolina University, and S.N.D.T. University in Mumbai, India. I love teaching and always enjoy sharing my life experiences in the classroom. Throughout my career I have taught a wide variety of courses from Foundation Design, to Jewelry Design to Typography, to a core course that I co-wrote with a colleague called Global Adornment. Recently I began teaching Digital Fine Arts which I am finding very rewarding. I also teach workshops covering a variety of topics. Take a look around. I would love to hear from you.
