Q&A with Susanne, Director Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better. We always try our best to accommodate parents' request beyond our policies. Once we had a parent who was a single mom with three children ages 7, 5, and 4. They all wanted to join the art classes, but the mom couldn't afford the individual programs for three different age groups. We understand that life is never easy for anyone, so we just asked what she could afford, and gave each child individual art programs for about one year. Then she moved to another state, but before she left, she wrote me a thank-you card and gave me a book named Peace Maker that was written by her. I feel that if one can make a difference in someone's life, one's life is not in vain. Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face? We give Rainbow Art dollars to students every time they come to the class as a reward for working hard. They can exchange them for prizes or art supplies that they want. We share the happiness of all birthdays, celebrations, and events with treats and gifts. How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field? [Our director Susanne] graduated from Hong Kong SRB college of Education, majoring in art and design. [She] also hold[s] CA teaching credentials and ha[s] more than 20 years teaching experience in Hong Kong and America. [She has] taught children's art programs at East Los Angeles College, and helped prep portfolios during art portfolio prep seminars for high school students. She says, "Our unique programs are combined Asian and Western styles. My mission is to make everyone enjoy art and appreciate the world with one's heart. Rainbow Art's comprehensive drawing and painting programs maximize the students' potentials in various art projects that go beyond just drawing and painting. We have done live drawing at Chinese New Year festivals, farmers' markets, and children's Chinese opera. We hosted a family event to teach students to recycle and draw on plastic and glass bottles last summer." Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Our students have won prizes from different drawing contests locally and internationally. Beyond our studio location, we also hold art classes for the City of Monterey Park recreation programs. [We host outdoor events] to inspire students to learn from their environment.
