Whoever her guest may be, inquisitive Emily is always up for a new experience or challenge.

"Young children and their parents will be drawn into Emily Yeung's inventive explorations in this lively episode about artistic endeavors. With genuine enthusiasm, Emily tries her hand at beading, origami, pottery, and balloon-making. Children will be stirred to create on their own with a variety of media and techniques. It is important to note that these are not 'how-to' or instructional segments, rather the focus is on Emily's experience with the process with less emphasis on the finished product. This will take the pressure off of young viewers who want to express themselves creatively. The adults who guide Emily through these events treat her seriously and validate her resourceful and imaginative efforts."
Dr. Mary Jane Eisenhauer, Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education, Purdue University North Central

The tools, techniques, and vocabulary are appropriate for young learners eager to explore beading, origami, balloon art, clay, and collages. Emily brings her own creative ideas to the table as she is guided by the adult expert."
Mrs. Tricia Fuglestad, Art Teacher, Dryden Elementary School
