Lauren Mantecon is one of the most talented teachers I've ever encountered.  To come into her world is like entering a sacred space.  She is gifted in her ability to soothe the soul and call forth fearless exploration and artistic expression.

Lauren's creativity building workshop completely takes the ego out of the process. I experienced the most intense feeling of being 'in the moment', which resulted in a profound emotional breakthough.

Lauren’s workshop was a revelation! I went in feeling nervous and hesitant, I came out feeling open, inspired and uninhibited!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our hands-on art session with Lauren during our last trip to Santa Fe. So much so that we booked another session for a few days later. Lauren is a great teacher and makes you very comfortable as you attempt to flex an often atrophied "art muscle"! we would heartily recommend Lauren's art classes!
