September (5, 12, 19, 26)
In September, Blazing Easels will focus on rural life in America. Students will explore quilt patterns, read stories of rural life and create their own illustrations, learn to draw farm animals and barns, and create rural dioramas. Through these activities we will develop our drawing skills, explore color and design and develop an appreciation of our rural community.

About the Instructor
As a shy daughter of Chinese immigrants, I found my language through a stack of computer paper and colored pencils. I was always fascinated by type and graphics. I hold a BFA in Visual Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. I am a graphic designer and was an art director for a magazine before I started a children’s art program, Creative Kids Art & Design Workshop. My classroom is a workshop for kids to experiment and be creative. I love learning about other cultures. I am passionate about inspiring kids of all ages to be creative through art and design.
