Christine Mallouf
Visual Arts Director / Instructor / Animator / Fine Artist

Cultural Artists Spotlight: May 15 – May 28, 2019

Can you tell us a little bit about what you do?
I am the Visual Arts Director for the Conservatory of Fine Arts which is part of Los Angeles Unified School District. It is a program for gifted and talented children. In addition, I teach adult classes at Burbank Community Art Center and I offer private lessons. My passions are painting, sculpting, basket weaving, ceramics–basically anything that has to do with art.

How did you first become interested in art?
From the time that I could first hold a pencil, I started drawing and never stopped. Plus both of my parents were artists, so I grew up in a very creative atmosphere.

How can art enrich a community, and what are some ways people can become engaged with art in Burbank?
Art brings people together and creates a sense of belonging. Taking classes and visiting local galleries is a great way to get to know the community and the people in it.

If you could share with our community one thing about art, what would it be?
Art is very therapeutic and is good for the soul. The creative process opens your eyes to the world around you in a way that nothing else can.
