Lauren Johnson - Art Teacher
Lauren Johnson is an artist and art educator who just finished up her first year of teaching at Williams Elementary. Ms. Johnson is excited to continue her career at Wagner Middle School, where she hopes to push the boundaries of what it means to be an artist. As an art educator, she firmly believes in fostering creative problem-solving skills by encouraging students to innovate and explore without fear of failure.
Ms. Johnson received a BFA in Visual Art Studies + Art Education from The University of Texas at Austin. She focused her studies on printmaking, photography, and architecture. She's passionate about sharing these techniques and other higher-level art forms with Wagner artists. Additionally, her experience in museum education at The Blanton Museum of Art has inspired her to incorporate meaningful discussions about both contemporary and historical artists into her classroom. She is excited that Wagner's philosophies will reinforce her push for critical-thinking, collaboration, and creativity.
When she's not teaching in Georgetown, Ms. Johnson is exploring and relaxing in Austin. She enjoys cooking, being outside, traveling, swimming, completing puzzles, and of course - making art!
