Thu-Ha Huynh, Artist and VisArts Student
Who would take 80 classes at VisArts? Thu-Ha would.
Thu-Ha retired from the World Bank ten years ago and has taken 72 classes at VisArts. She is an accomplished ceramic and jewelry artist. Her ceramic work is extremely delicate and the beautiful jewelry she creates is reminiscent of that worn by women in Africa, where she lived and traveled for her work. She started taking classes at VisArts because they offered her opportunities to work in a variety of media that she had not experienced, like painting and drawing. She enjoys taking classes with young people. Engaging in creating artwork makes her feel relaxed and upbeat, and the encouragement and constructive critiques she receives from her instructors are highly motivating for her. Thu-Ha finds that even if you take a class more than once, you don’t create artwork the same way each time.
Each year more than 10,000 students take classes at VisArts. Some have taken thirty, forty or more. What value do they gain from their experiences? For some, it may be the opportunity to try a different medium or give a piece of artwork another chance. For others, it may be a chance to socialize with a new group of individuals or learn from a different instructor.
