I open just a few courses each year so I can focus my full attention on my students.

Course access is by invitation only.

Join the waitlists below and I’ll send you a personal email invitation when your course is open for registration. I can’t wait to see you inside!

I love sharing my passion for art history, whether in a traditional college classroom, at a professional conference, in a bookstore, or even on an airplane. And I truly enjoy bringing art history to a wider audience online.

But don’t just take it from me:

Keep Learning with Laura

I hold a Ph.D in art history from Yale University and have taught college students in the U.S. and in Italy. I believe art history is the most interesting subject in the world, but sometimes we academics make it dull and inaccessible. My goal is to bring the excitement and wonderment of art history to a broad audience. Join me!


I have taught traditional introductory and upper-level art history courses, specially designed seminars on authentic arts and design, as well as workshops on writing in the humanities. I have taught at Trinity College in Rome, as well as at Northeastern University, Merrimack College, St. Joseph College, and the College of Coastal Georgia.

TED-Ed Lessons

I am so excited about new opportunities to bring art history to students and other audiences who may not have been reached before. TED-Ed lessons remind me of the old Schoolhouse Rock segments I used to watch on TV as a kid. They are short, fun, and I won’t lie: It is oh-so-challenging to encapsulate those “ideas worth sharing” in just a few minutes! You can find samples of my work for TED-Ed here and here.

Lectures and Discussions

I am invited regularly to teach and deliver lectures at colleges, universities, museums, cultural centers, bookstores, and other venues on subjects related to art history and authentic travel.

Book Clubs

I love joining book club groups online. Click here to invite me to join your book group discussion!

Private and Charity Events

I have collaborated with event organizers to stage elaborate Venetian-themed dinner events including multimedia slide shows.
