A FUN approach to ART for EVERYONE!

Based in Orono, Maine


Hi! My name is Valerie Wallace and I am an artist and art teacher from Orono, Maine.  I have a BFA from RISD in illustration and I have been teaching for 14 years. I have taught classes to people from 3 to 101!  I offer everything from Paint and SipsBirthday Parties and Art Camps to weekly Art Classes and private lessons. Perhaps you want a casual group class with step by step instructions where you can socialise and explore your artistic side? On the other hand, maybe you need some help following your own inspiration. Either way, I will provide you with the materials and encouragement you need!  Let me make your life more creative!

I also offer my artistic skills for your creative projects I am a painter, muralist, illustrator, sculptor, photographer and videographer.

I also love a PARTY! I am an experienced caricaturist and face painter. I offer ART PARTIES is my studio or in your venue. As a mother to 4 I have thrown over 40 themed birthday parties! I can do everything from the cake to a piñata and the party games, for adults and children.
