Student Artwork Here are just a few examples of works created by Valerie’s students. Valerie’s students begin with the basics and grow to amaze themselves. “I can’t believe this piece of artwork came from my own two hands. I always said I can’t even draw a straight line. Now look at me! If I can do this, anyone can!” – Susan H. “I always thought my role was to be the person appreciating other people’ art. Now I’m creating my own art. I’ve been drawing for less than a year and I’m just thrilled.” – Cathie M.
