About

Valencia Carroll is a passionate teaching artist, who combines her training and experiences in art and art therapy. After earning her MA in Art Therapy at The George Washington University in DC, she worked as a Board-Certified Art Therapist with families and children for several years in locations such as schools and mental health clinics. She then went on to art school to complete her studies in classical oil painting at the Gage Academy of Art. In her studio practice, Valencia creates representational oil paintings using “classical realism” techniques. She experiments with lighting, color harmony and composition in her figurative and still-life works. Her goal is to create artwork that is beautifully crafted and that also serves as a reflection of her worldview. Over the last several years, Valencia has exhibited, presented and taught at several locations throughout western Washington including the Washington State History Museum, Northwest African American Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Theatre Group and the Maryhill Museum of Art. Valencia has also worked as an Art Docent Program Coordinator in the Northshore School District where she has enjoyed sharing the stories and techniques of art and art making process with K-5 students and their parents.
