Bio: Hello, my name is Dina Kharag. When it comes to art, I love creating to make people happy and allow self-expression while promoting relaxation techniques. In my spare time, I like to do photography, write poetry, knit, and do simple arts and crafts such as sock puppets. My daytime job is working with K to 5th students as an after school chess teacher. I also graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and minor in education from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have been part of ArtSeed for over 12 years and excited to be back as an online teacher for Summer Intensive 2020.
ArtSeed Statement: “Over the formative years, starting as a participant, then changing to other positions such as volunteer, Youth Council President, Counselor in Training, and presently an intern, ArtSeed has given me so much experience. I have gained knowledge in different mediums of art and maintaining a non-profit; both unique sets of skills that I can be able to use in my day to day life. I am eternally grateful for ArtSeed and proud of their accomplishments in changing lives, including my own.”
