TAP-SF's Taiwanese Paint Night

Ever wanted to explore your artistic side? This is your chance!

Taiwanese American Professionals – San Francisco (TAP-SF) is hosting a private paint night event to fund-raise for our annual Bay Area Taiwanese American Community Scholarship, which recognizes outstanding SF Bay Area high school students.

We will be painting a Taiwanese landscape similar to the one shown in the photo above with Taipei 101 amidst a scenic backdrop of mountains. However, our painting will have more color!

Torrey Delaplane will lead the class, and she has taught Paint Nites throughout the Bay Area. After graduating from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Art in 2009, Torrey lived and worked in San Francisco coaching soccer, teaching painting classes, and working in graphic design.

We will provide all supplies, as well as some Taiwanese snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

All proceeds will go towards the TAP scholarship.
