Portfolio > Student Work from Virginia Commonwealth University, Design School

Before viewing these works of art please keep in mind they were created by Freshmen Students 2000 to 2012 at VCUQ in Qatar.These young students came to college with very little former or formal training in visual art. Over twelve years it was my joy to mentor them. Play is important to life, they played at a very high level. Enjoy their efforts.

If only one could clone the behaviors of top students, like Ms Noura Al Kalifi and inject that level of creativity and courage into all students wouldn't it be grand. Millions of people worldwide watched the 2009, Prix De l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamps, Paris and saw the wonderful Trophy given in the winners circle to Christopher Tsui, the owner of “Sea of Stars”,the winning horse.
