This holiday season David Lee, adjunct professor in the Department of Art, traveled to China to conduct the concluding portion of an online art appreciation course he taught through Coastline Community College’s EBUS program when he spotted some familiar images.

In an email Lee writes: “Between classes I was wandering campus, getting a feel for the school. I walked into the international education center and that is where found an information panel that included Chapman University!” Among the photos on the panel were shots of Global Citizens Plaza and the statue of C.C. Chapman.

The western art history course was taught via Skype to students hoping to enroll in American universities. For the final four weeks of the class Lee traveled to their suburban campus near Guangzhou to teach classroom lessons.

In addition to teaching drawing and 2D design courses, Lee has been involved in the Phyllis and Ross Escalette Permanent Collection of Art for the last 10 years.
