Johns Hopkins Gazette: July 25, 1994

Senior Tsao-Wei Liang is holding an intensive drawing workshop
for a small group of Barclay Elementary students on the
Homewood campus this summer. Liang hopes the class will show
whether young children with an aptitude for art can
successfully tackle challenges adult artists face: drawings
from still life, portraits and landscape. In order to measure
their progress, the students will create drawings before and
after instruction.
     The class is part of the university's community outreach
programs in which area schoolchildren spend classroom time with
Hopkins students, staff and faculty. The programs are designed
to offer elementary, middle and high school students extra help
and to encourage them in their studies.
     Liang is funding his first-time project through the Lewis
E. Goodman, M.D., Award, which Hopkins annually gives to
encourage premed students to pursue interests beyond the field
of medicine. A volunteer in the city schools through Hopkins'
Project Outreach, Liang studies drawing under Craig Hankin in
the Homewood Arts Workshops.
