Lauren Hollick is a recent graduate of the Art Education program at SUNY New Paltz. She concentrates in ceramics, drawing, painting, and sculpture. Lauren believes that the art room always needs to provide a positive environment that can cater to students on all levels of ability and creativity. In her courses, she works to combine mediums together allowing experimentation and a complete understanding on how techniques can be used together to develop original works with meaning. Her projects have opportunities for problem solving where artists can figure out creative solutions individually and collaboratively. She has been through The Art Institute programs in High School and has been working for The Art Effect for many years.

The Art Effect empowers youth in the Hudson Valley through the arts and media. Our programming sequence supports the personal and professional development of youth and provides them with the tools and support necessary to explore the arts, gain meaningful experiences, and eventually excel in their chosen tracks.
