Prof. Valerie Taylor

Part-time Faculty

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina moved to the US for college, and have lived in Italy and London in the pursuit of undergrad and advanced degrees in Art History. Most of my adult life I lived in New York City and worked in magazine publishing. Currently, I live in Burbank with my husband and our dog Nips.

Over the past 13 years, I have taught Western Art courses at Santa Monica and Pasadena City colleges as well as surveys of Pre-Columbian Art (Mesoamerica and Andean Cultures) and the History of Mexican Art from Pre-Columbian to Chicana/o.

My film about art production in the Italian Renaissance, The Illustrated Credenza can be viewed at:
