Laura Filgate


Laura has been teaching art since 2000. Fascinated by all disciplines of art Laura has tried it all! From tile mosaics to soapstone carving, clay sculpting and printmaking, even running a successful kiln fused glass business for years. She hopes to instill a passion in the arts for all her students and help them find a way to express their creativity!  Laura believes the IB Visual Arts Diploma Program provides meaningful opportunities for creative expression, communication and understanding the world around us. In her spare time, Laura can be found hiking with her dog and doing yoga, or maybe planning her next travel adventure while enjoying a hot cup of Java.
