Pop Art Portraits with Ms. Laura

Pop Art Portraits with Ms. Laura

Every student is an artist!

Now enrolling for a four week intensive in Jan 2024.  

11:30 am- 1:00 pm at Farm School (10261 Vista De La Cruz in La Mesa).


Meet Laura Hawker Plouzek


I’m Laura Hawker Plouzek and I believe all humans are born artists. We won’t all make a living as artists, of course, but seeking out and creating beauty is an innate part of our existence. I love sharing the total joy that making brings!

I am an artist and a maker who adores bold color. I currently use my talents as a maker of rad and ridiculous bow ties (shaped like scissors, or a haunted house, or sunglasses!), but previously taught high school art and stagecraft in Seattle (Mariner High School) and locally (Torrey Pines High School). I have a BAE in Art Education from Eastern Washington University and 3 kids.

Class Overview



We'll spend this four week intensive painting portraits (acrylic on canvas!)
We'll study the work of a few modern artists (Warhol, Lichtenstein, Close) and each student will paint a portrait in the style of their favorite.  Each student will stretch and gesso their own canvas, choose their color palettes, and design and paint their portraits.   Our last class will include a mini (totally kind and constructive) critique of the finished portraits.
