As the president of Art For All, I started the Art For All Coloring Book project hoping to bring happiness to people suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic. This project features the artworks of the Art For All club members: organized into a coloring book format. Our club hosted coloring sessions in Orange County, California, and multiple rural areas in China, promoting art and inclusion, as well as the American and Chinese cultures.

The book is divided into 4 sections (cartoon characters, facts and learning, florals, and collectibles). Each section targets children of different age group, ranging from simple geometric forms to complex designs and facts about animals and astronomy.
In addition to publishing the book, I reached out to organizations and school in orange county and China to donate coloring books and hold online coloring sessions to interact with children.

February 7, 2021, the project went viral and was featured on many famous networks such as China Economic Net, China.com, and China Daily, etc.
