Join Educator Taylor and her talented assistant Roux to celebrate Pride Month by learning about AAPI artists who are members of the LGBTQIA community! This week, let’s explore the life of Abstract Expressionist Bernice Bing. Bernice was a Chinese American lesbian artist and community activist who worked in San Francisco. She was inspired by Zen Buddhism and Chinese calligraphy, as well as the Abstract Expressionist movement in the U.S. Let’s get inspired by Bernice’s colorful style of painting to create our own Abstract Expressionist work of art!
