Winter Art Show: Gallery of Student Creations

The Winter Art Show in early February brought in hundreds of students, parents and staff to celebrate Valor Arts+Media and showcased all fall semester students’ hard work. All throughout the Valor Center students hung paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, posters, and even skateboards. Created from level one classes to Valor’s Visual Arts Conservatory classes, every Art student got to see their art on full display. 

“I think the Winter Art Show is a great way for students to display their art in a way that strengthens their confidence in their own art and invites other people into their lives to enjoy what they’ve created,”  said Megan Holliday, a junior Valor Conservatory art student. 

The Winter Art Show is dynamic and gets people involved. One of the galleries showcased graphic design students “zines”, projects where students were given the freedom to create a short magazine of their interest. Set up with chairs and a zine rack, the gallery gave students the unique experience to show off their creation while allowing visitors a special experience to engage with students’ art. 

“The Winter Art Show shows how much Valor appreciates its students, so much so that they will put together a whole show just to display their hard work,” says Holliday. By giving the students the ability and opportunity to display their hard work and passions, Valor illustrates how it is investing in all departments. As Valor Media Chair, Natalie Tysdal said, “The Art Show is such a fantastic way to highlight all our students’ hard work.” Thank you Valor Arts+Media faculty and students for your dedication and inspiring art!
