Lauren Rudolph was born in New Jersey and currently lives in Nyack, NY where she works as a portrait artist and instructor.

Lauren began her college education at the School of Visual Arts in NYC and received her BA in art from the University at Albany.

Being an art teacher combines both of Lauren’s loves, creativity and connection.  She has taught art to Middle School students in both public and private schools and helped found two creative studios. The Little Light Art Studio was a home based art studio for children and a Circle on the Farm which was an art space that held creative circles, art classes and events.

Lauren loves to teach private lessons, courses online and group classes. She has taught art classes at ARC of Rockland for the past six years and is so grateful to teach classes at a wonderful agency who’s mission is to support and provide many services to people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
