  Q & A:​

  • What art classes do you teach in educational institutions?

I teach intro studio art and art foundation courses, which are mainly designed for art foundation students to lay the practical skills to move forward into advanced courses; and to give non-major students an introduction to a variety of art making. Students are introduced to 2D, 3D art, installation art, public art, and environmental art through skills in basic drawing, design, woodworking, casting molding, laser cutting, and video editing.

  • Do you also teach art workshops for the community?

Yes, I enjoy working with non-profit organizations, art centers, and education programs. I love to make my mission to understand the people's needs and then design attentive, friendly, and specific techniques-focused workshops for the ​community. I have been promoting workshops, 4-6 section long classes and online classes. You can find my current workshops at "Event Sign-Up. Contact for a cooperation>>

  • Sculpture: figure modeling, clay sculpting, blocks carving, casting and mold making.

  • Printmaking: Relief, Intaglio, Lithographic, and Silkscreen.

  • Can you work with an educational team that is looking for a cooperative project that brings two fields together?

Absolutely! When there's a theme that matches my work practice, it would be an exciting collaboration! I've created interactive artworks, presentation boards, demo props, intro videos, and game designs as cooperative projects.  See more collaboration project here >>
