Fan Your Talents Project Description

This project was created by New Paltz artist * Jing Shuai, a DEC 2017 Grantee (DEC is a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.)    Sign up for a fan painting workshop on January 1st, 2019 >>

The theme of this project is to provide an opportunity based in an ancient philosophy (Tao) for participants to discover and develop their individual artistic talents.


If we are open to experience the creative process then this program, Fan Your Talents, should help to nourish us.


To encourage family or friends of all ages to attend this program, there are several interactive activities to choose from for various ages and skill levels.


Participants will find their way (Tao) to creativity through fan painting and improvisational workshops.  Options include poetry reading, 

storytelling or fan dance.  There will be a second annual performance event: Fan Your Talents for those who are ready to showcase their talents.
