My Way

August 26, 2012 by Valerie Deas
I am always in thought about what direction I want my art to go. Having taught art for thirteen years I exposed my students as well as myself  to different  art forms such as ;drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, collage making etc.  So when  people ask me what is my  area?  I have none and don't want one…

Having time to work

Thank God summer vacation is four days away.  I find it difficult to work my regular job of teaching twenty five art classes a week and working on my own art.  I am excited that I will have some time to focus on my self.
