MEET MRS. YI!
Annie Yi was born in Oakland, California, and it was through the local bay area that she has found passion for the arts and to teach students art. It was in middle and high school that she found an interest in painting, sculpture and any type of art. Upon graduating, she pursued an Arts degree at University of California, Davis.
Traveling to Italy, Spain, Japan, Korea, Africa and much more to learn about the art in different countries, she came back to the states to teach art at all different levels and ages. With the experiences of teaching at a variety of levels, she believes she has great insight to help students during high school.
While exhibiting her work and teaching at the high school level, she went back obtain her master’s degree in Art Education to further her knowledge in the arts, teaching the arts and developed a curriculum suited for secondary level students.
Throughout the summer, Annie not only works on her own personal art pieces but also teaches at UC Berkeley as an instructor in Fine Arts Department, for (ATDP) Academic Talent Development Program created for highly motivated students in the local area. She loves teaching and finds great joy in having students tap into the wonderful world of Art!
