“My Dream House” Art Contest was organized by Chinese American Construction Professionals （CACP）, and the award ceremony was held as part of its 2019 Lunar New Year Celebration.
Establishedin1982，CACP has been serving the community and nurturing the construction professionals for almost 40 years. Its members are from various design, construction, and development disciplines including Architecture, Contracting, Engineering, Inspections, Finance, Material Supply, Real Estate, and Utilities.
“Our school has been teaching children art for almost 30 years and our students have taken part in many many art contests,” Lei Wang, WCAAD President, said, “this Dream House art contest is the one we think highly of. Why? Because architecture and drawing are closely related. Architecture Is Art. Many of our graduates have majored in architecture at their dream colleges. Many of our graduates have become architects. Art training during their childhood is one of the most important factors for their success.”
According to Ms. Wang, such art contest is a very good opportunity for students to hone both drawing skills and design ability, and expand their imagination and creativity. “We hope this contest will continue and more children will become tomorrow’s architects!” Ms. Wang said.
