Watercolor Wonders
with artist Eunju Kang

Eunju Kang was born and raised in Daegu, Korea, and moved to California as a teenager with her family in the 70s. Eunju was always an avid doodler, often filling her textbooks with sketches, which became a helpful communication tool as she adjusted to her new life. Since the early 90s, Eunju has lived and worked in NYC, focusing on painting, printmaking, and transforming her doodles and sketches into a successful business with her sisters.

Eunju earned fine art degrees at UC Santa Barbara and Pasadena ArtCenter College of Design, where she graduated with distinction. She has been awarded residencies at The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown (FAWC), the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Vermont Studio Center. Additionally, she received a scholarship to the Bob Blackburn Print Making Workshop in NYC. Eunju has also taught at the L.A. County High School for the Arts, the ArtCenter College of Design, and the School of Visual Art in NYC. Her fine art is featured in private collections around the world, and her illustration work has been utilized in packaging and ad campaigns by prestigious brands such as Godiva Chocolate, Aveda, Simon & Schuster, among many others.

Eunju's lifelong passion for monoprinting started in Santa Barbara and continues to drive her artistic exploration. She often incorporates collage and detailed sketches or paintings into her work, and she frequently employs mixed media on wood panels. She expresses her love for monoprinting, describing it as an endless journey of surprises—something spontaneous, both intended and unintended.

Join this 90-minute art workshop that focuses on truly observing and appreciating the beauty of nature's dried items as if seeing them for the first time. Through simple drawing and using watercolors, we will sketch and follow the intricate lines of these natural wonders, immersing ourselves in their decay and accepting the essence of our own being, step by step.

In this workshop, there will be no judgment, just pure fascination and admiration for what lies in front of us. The most basic form of making art will be our guide—small arches, hot press paper, watercolors, and pencils will be our tools of creation.

Discover the art of being present as you paint and learn from nature's abundant teachings. Artist Eunju Kang will share her expertise, guiding you through the magical world of watercolors, where each stroke captures the essence of blooming flowers in their transitional stages.Join us on this colorful journey of collaboration with watercolors, as we celebrate the beauty of nature in all its forms.

This project is supported by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, Statewide Community Regrants Program (formerly the Decentralization program) with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, and administered by Flushing Town Hall.

This workshop is also supported in part by Queens Rising, a multi disciplinary arts celebration created to highlight the borough's culture and creative diversity.
