附錄:一個小故事

The Houston Chinese Amateur Painting Club (HCAPC) was established by Mr. T. C. Sun and seven other members in 1994. Our membership has grown rapidly from 8 members at the club's inception to 80 plus today. The club attracts a wide range of participants and welcomes members from all age and ethnic groups. 

HCAPC meets every Thursday at the Houston Chinese Culture Center at 10303 Westoffice, Houston. Our volunteer teachers, Mrs. Janice Chen, Mrs. Katy Cheng, and Dr. Y. T. Wei, offer instruction and assistance on various painting techniques such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and pencil.  In 2005, we expanded our teaching staff by adding two teachers, Mrs. Susan Tsai and Mrs. Grace Szeto. Every year, HCAPC also organizes two art shows, two field trips, and several lectures/demos by renowned artists.  

Our annual general meeting is held on the first Thursday of December, during which we discuss and vote on various pertinent issues, elect new officers and hold a year-end party. 

All meetings, unless specified,  are held at the Houston Chinese Culture Center. 

Art lovers are encouraged to join our organization and participate in our activities. The annual membership fee is $35. For more information, please email your inquiry to
