Tasty Colors with Robin Ha

Date(s) - 02/01/2023
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join Robin Ha, a Korean American cartoonist, as she explores the relationship between cooking and visual art. 


Robin Ha: “When I was young, I thought cooking and drawing were not related to each other at all. It wasn’t until I became an adult and started cooking for myself that I discovered that making food and making visual art is similar in many ways. Creativity lives in all of us and different people express it in different ways. In this visual presentation, we will explore how our creativity can help us connect with each other and find joy within ourselves in hopes that everyone can open themselves up to becoming more creative.”
