RAINBOW ART in MPK | Excellence in art education
Those who teach should do
Our values of Education, Communication, and Integrity are the foundation for all of our programs, activities, and partnerships. We are committed to educating our students and their parents in the visual arts, communicating with our students and their parents about what is happening in the classroom, and providing all of our services with the utmost integrity.
We at Rainbow Art teach visual art because visual art is what we do. All of our teachers are currently working as professionals in the visual arts industry. Because of this all of our teachers have a deep understanding of artistic development.
A good process leads to a good finish
Our studio is focused on teaching students to understand the “how” and “why” of image creation. We value and teach the process which leads our students to finishing their pieces well.
The success of a piece here at Rainbow Art is determined by the effort of the students and how they apply the methods, principles and techniques taught in class. Even pieces considered “unsuccessful” play a special role and are in fact invaluable to the process of artistic development. We ask that our students come to class with humility to learn, diligence to work hard and discipline to practice at home.
Darren and Trisha Inouye, a husband and wife team, became Rainbow Art’s directors in 2017. As graduates of ArtCenter College of Design, working professional artists, and experienced teachers, they hope to bring their unique vision to serve the students and families of Rainbow Art, the greater community of Monterey Park, and beyond.
