EXHIBITION FOR YOUTH: IMAGINATION AT PLAY

Valerie McKee is an artist, illustrator and art educator living in Pointe-Claire. Her love of the natural world, and especially her fascination with animals, finds frequent expression in her work. Her paintings place animal characters in human context, drawing attention to both the personalities of animals and the animal qualities in humans. Valerie is also an accomplished art educator. Believing that creativity is an innate human quality, her goal is to encourage people of all ages to access their creativity through the artmaking process. With colourful, imaginative projects and interactive workshops, she empowers her students to explore their imaginations and learn to see the world’s everyday “artfulness”. These are the building blocks for a lifetime of art appreciation and practice.
