I am delighted to welcome you to my studio, located on the beautiful shoreline of Groton, CT. This charming coastal area is infused with lovely restaurants, pristine beaches and vivid ocean views. I had to pinch myself when I moved to the area as it is unbelievably beautiful and feels like you are on vacation all of the time.


I offer private art lessons and custom teaching packages for individuals and small groups of adults and children. Personal attention is a priority and unique to each student.

It will be my pleasure and privilege to walk with you on this journey of self-discovery and creative play, hopefully leading you to a more joyful and fulfilling life.

To create a custom program that fits your needs, whether that is a private or group class, contact me at laura.gaffke@me.com.

I’d love to help you grow your creativity! 



Offerings to help you slow down, connect with yourself and find more JOY in your life.

I believe art is a process of self-discovery. It is more than just a pretty picture or perfecting a drawing. It is a way of living and being in the world. It offers a means to slow down, look, listen and give voice to our highest, brightest self.

This self can often get swept up and lost in our everyday lives.

Creating time to connect to this sacred place within has the potential to heal and help you grow and relate to the world and yourself in ways you never thought possible.

If you have lost sight of what makes you feel most alive and are simply going through the motions in your life, you are invited to join me in one of my creative offerings.

Sit beside me in my Private Studio and let me help you unearth your creative spirit.

What is your soul in need of?  I will help you figure that out.

To decide if my offerings are right for you, look to that still, peaceful voice within.
