La Jolla Community Center: Learn about renowned artist Minnie Valero’s artistic process in sketching. Sketching allows you to remember more details than just taking a picture - when traveling or around town. Be bold, dare to sketch the life around you! Born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, Minnie Valero immigrated to the US with her family, and pursued a career in public high school education while obtaining Masters degrees in English and Linguistics, Counseling and Educational Policy from UCLA. Now, she divides her time between her home in California, and her travels around the world (when allowed), painting and teaching art in French, Spanish, and English.
