Rainbow Art Studio's Impact in the Community (Cupertino Courier)
"For youngsters growing up in Cupertino, the idea of searching for a bed to sleep in each night or wondering who will provide their next meal doesn't cross their minds.

"Kyung Ahn of Rainbow Art Studio has been teaching art in Cupertino for over 17 years, in addition to volunteering at local elementary schools and homeless shelters. She learned about Growing Up Asian in America from her local librarian and then encouraged her students to enter."
Rainbow Art Studio has produced many winners for this art competition throughout the years!

"The teacher [Kyung Ahn] is there to guide me and give me tips on whatever I'm working on," she says. "She has guided a lot of people, so she knows what colleges are looking for and she knows which colleges have the best art programs."
