Lola is an expressive artist who creates creative experiences that tell you stories, making ideas
concrete and giving you opportunities to think and dream.

Lola is Unique! 

Lola enjoys being like the grand MC taking kids down the rabbit hole, like Dr. Seuss and Willy Wonka, Pee-Wee's Playhouse and The Beatle’s Sergeant Pepper’s all wrapped up in one with a little Mr. Rodgers sprinkled on top.  Lola thrives on meeting new people and trying new things, and then sharing her enthusiasm about her new experiences through her skills in writing, designing, performing and directing. Lola is motivated to live an adventurous life, and wants to inspire others to explore new things and collaborate with talented friends like you.
Lola is an Educator. 

Lola has a knack for conveying information and ideas across multiple platforms. She directs her multidisciplinary expressive skills strategically to reach and open each child’s personal door of learning. She has created educational programs for children since 2000, when she began teaching for Arlington County and starting her own after school programs and camps. Later she co-founded/co-owned and was the creative director of Left Noodle-Right Noodle, LLC., a program that focused on using both sides of the brain to explore information and art. LNRN’s programs were featured in over 38 local area schools. She founded Lola’s Lab, LLC, in 2010 to produce the ultimate creative imagination stretching experiences for children, weaving fantasy and fact together at once, delivered exclusively by professional artists. 

Lola is a Multidisciplinary Artist. 

Lola’s imagination and artistic talents have been used to develop parades, films, circus acts, exhibits and other special events. She has created artworks, theatrical events and designs for Disney, Cirque Du Soleil, Very Special Arts at the Kennedy Center, The US Pavilion at the 1998 World’s Expo in Portugal and other special events including turning 150 people into pirates for a fantasy in the Caribbean! In Washington, DC, she is known for creating the “Watermelophant,” a 2002 DC Party Animal (pictured), and her 2009 “Obama Inaugural Gown,” (pictured) a wearable art piece that stopped party-goers in their tracks and most recently, in 2014, The Eyes of Ballston, an interactive public sculpture.  Lola’s work has been featured in magazines, on TV and in the news. She recently published “Zoopossible: Royal Kingdom,” an active reading book for kids which has performed twice at the National Children’s Museum and has another ready for publishing, ”Superoink and the Why Not Club.”

This is Lola

Shhh, even though its tons of fun, its also educational!

Lola’s Lab is designed for children to learn to be innovative, collaborative thinkers. We carefully craft a meaningful experience that engages the creative and the problem-solving mind.  Our professional level visual and performing artists teach kids how to develop and contribute their unique ideas with confidence and how to support the work of a team.  And through our training, kids develop ways to access their creative powers more and more easily. To this end, the environment we create is designed to be an open minded, social and happy.  It’s always OK for kids to try new things and make mistakes, because great creativity happens when we are looking for solutions.
