Are you still looking for just the right gift for your Valentine? Well, the Tulsa Girls Art School might have just the thing for you as the students get ready for their Valentine fundraiser.

"Everyone can come get some love for their loved one for $10 a piece," said Matt Moffett with the school.

Moffett said they challenge the girls to create at least four valentines, so there are a couple of hundred to choose from.

"We taught the girls how to marble paper with tempera paint and shaving cream," he said. “You take shaving cream, you make a pile on a table, you pour in red yellow and blue paint, take a stick and swirl it around, push the paper into it, squeegee it off and you have this wonderful marbling effect."

There are linoleum prints, collages created with donated fabric, some are very elaborate, others, just the basics.

The Art School has 50 students ages 8-18. Once they are accepted into the program in 3rd grade, they can stay nine years.

The girls have been working on the valentines since the beginning of the year.

The current project is a still life, a vase full of flowers. These pieces will be ready for their spring show.

Money raised will help pay for a trip to Santa Fe this summer.
