    Above: Past drawing workshop with Jeni Chen.

    As part of the Richmond Children’s Arts Festival, the gallery will be welcoming families for registered drop-in activities throughout the day.

    Local artist Jeni Chen will lead drawing and painting activities to create a small hand-made book. Inspired by the NOURISH exhibition, develop words and pictures to tell a story about your favourite food or place. Project is suitable for all ages.

    Limited capacity, registration required for a one-hour time-slot at 11:00 am, 12:00pm, 1:00pm, or 2:00pm.

    About the Artist:

    Jeni Chen has always loved to draw. When she was a child, she would carry her sketchbook and pencil crayons everywhere with her. Encouraged to pursue a more practical career, Jeni graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science degree. She had worked in a variety of fields from scientific research to business to real estate. After the birth of her son, Jeni picked up her childhood passion of drawing and obtained a Fine Art certificate from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Since then, Jeni has been selected for several public art programs in her city. Currently, she is working on her debut picture book scheduled to be released by Little Press Publishing in spring 2022. And for fun, Jeni draws a webcomic series EJ Rascal about family life with her elementary school-aged son.
