Cathy Chang

Living in the SF South Bay area, has taught for after-school programs and is currently teaching youth art at local private studios. I teach most traditional artistic skills in painting, drawing, ceramics to children, and occasionally participate shows-and-sales at nearby cities. I received my BFA in Studio Art from the University of Southern California 1998, studied ceramic, painting and drawing courses with Mr. Ken Price and Mr. Bob Alderette. Followed, I pursued for a business degree in Golf Complex Operation at San Diego; I was enthusiastic, participated in more than 70 academy tournaments, certified as a golf club fitter and a teaching certification in golf but nothing went on to art until graduation. After complete both schools, returned SF South Bay area, setup a home studio, and explore ways to provide interesting art subjects for young children. I also actively study related courses in spare time, continue to develop a better process in making art.
