At the Chantilly Campus of the US Arts Education Center, children aged 5 or older hone their artistic skills by creating their own rendition of a featured painting. Staffers provide all the necessary materials—such as acrylic paint and canvases—before encouraging tots to build their own treat using provided sundae ingredients. Children and adults should also wear old clothes, as this activity may get messy. Click here for more information.

US Arts Education Center

Jianxin Zhao hails from a long line of artists, so it was only natural that she’d study gongbi figure painting at the Chinese Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Three of her award-winning paintings caught the attention of the National Art Museum of China, where they currently reside as part of the museum's permanent collection. For more than a decade, she used this fame to pursue a career as a university professor of fine arts before eventually moving to the United States. Two years later, Professor Zhao founded the US Arts Education Center in Temple City, where she continues to dedicate her life to educating young people in the arts to this day.

Over the years, she has built crack team of educators to assist with the development of her curriculum. Known as Comprehensive Training in Art, this system combines eastern and western teaching philosophies, and instructs people at all stages of life, including preschool through adulthood. Professor Zhao has also expanded her educational endeavors beyond this flagship location, developing an exclusive partnership with UCLA through the Thought-Makers Program and opening additional facilities in Chantilly, Torrence, and San Diego.
