Rosa Chan

Drawing and Painting

Received grants in 2018, 2019 and 2020

My name is Rosa Chan. I have created art for many years. I have focused on drawing and painting recently since I started drawing at Carnegie Community Centre 4 years ago. I enjoy drawing because it helps me feel relaxed and comfortable.

In addition to receiving three DTES Small Arts Grants Awards, I have also participated in the Oppenheimer Park Community Art Show at Gallery Gachet and last year’s Art Book.

How has receiving a DTES Small Arts Grant supported your development as an artist?

It enabled me to take art classes, which I enjoy. I like to improve my skills. When I am with other artists I feel relaxed, comfortable, and happy.

How has DTES Small Arts Grants helped DTES artists?

The DTES Small Arts Grants helped artists meet each other, and build a good community.

How has DTES Small Arts Grants impacted the community?

The DTES Small Arts Grants help develop community ties by connecting us to each other, and providing opportunities to learn from each other.
