2018 - PRESENT | HOUSTON KID'S ART WORKSHOPS
During school breaks, I design, plan, and coordinate my own kid’s art classes for children's 7-14 at the Sugar Land Art Center, from buying supplies, renting venues, to planning curriculum; I strive to teach children painting & drawing techniques to further their art skills and create new projects to reflect their passion for art. These proceeds are donated to the Texas Children's Hospital: Periwinkle Arts in Medicine Program, and to date, I have raised around $2000. Over the Covid-19 crisis, I have begun teaching private art lessons and selling canvas prints to raise more money for this cause.

Witnessing art provide children with a stress-relieving outlet enhancing their treatment, I worked as a guest artist at the Texas Children's Hospital. I conducted and planned art workshops, highlighting simple crafts, holiday projects, and drawings, to raise spirits and an appreciation for art for outpatients. Continuing through the summer, I served as a Summer Junior Volunteer for the Arts in Medicine program, working with over 150 cancer and blood disorder in and outpatients.
2017- 2019 | SUGAR LAND ART CENTER
Hoping to work with even younger children, at the Sugar Land Art Center & Gallery, I helped conduct art classes for children 3-7, teaching diverse painting, drawing, and craft skills. Art serves to allow these young children to unleash their creativity and improve their fine motor skills.
2016- 2019 | RITA DRABEK ELEMENTARY ART CLUB
Returning to my elementary school, where my love for art first originated, I ran weekly Art Club meetings. I assisted my elementary school art teacher with tutoring 4th-5th grade students to enrich their art skills in a variety of mediums, provided guidance for national and international art competitions, and gave advice on pursuing art in middle school.
