Fundraiser for art classroom honors life of Danielle Valenzuela
–Join the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation in a Celebration of Life contribution, in honor of Danielle Valenzuela.
Valenzuela had a passion for children and teaching the arts. She was an art teacher at the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation for many years as well as a talented volunteer. Valenzuela’s family would like to raise funds for the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation to honor her and all the wonderful service she provided to our community’s youth and the arts. Funds raised will be used to dedicate the new art room in honor of Valenzuela, as part of the Youth Arts Foundation’s Expansion Project.
Valenzuela was involved with the Youth Arts Foundation from the beginning. Her passion for the arts shined through her every day. She always looked for new ideas and new opportunities for the kids as well as new fundraising opportunities for the school. The Youth Arts was her happy place. She was an incredible artist and teacher. She always had brilliant ways to engage our students with the process of art. She always said that it’s the “process not the product” and every student would bring to life powerful creations from their heart and soul because of that. She took students on a journey into the world of love, compassion, and endless opportunities with their imaginations. She made everyone laugh and wowed them with what she accomplished. She was a good example for our children and pushed them to believe in themselves.
With her easy-going demeanor and witty humor, she brought joy to all in her presence.
She will be missed by so many friends and students, but her influence will always live on through the walls of our school.
