Sculptor Kai Chan challenges us to see the beauty in ordinary things. An acclaimed visual artist, he has the incredible ability to transform the most mundane materials--tree trimmings or plastic shopping bags--into delicate and delightful works of art.

In I Can Make Art Like Kai Chan, he shares his artistic philosophy of economy and repetition with young artists who build extraordinary and complex 3D structures using simple materials and basic techniques.

Playful and powerful, I Can Make Art Like Kai Chan demystifies the creative process and inspires us to stop and take another look at the world around us.

I Can Make Art is a series of six short films that take a kids'-eye view on a diverse group of Canadian visual artists.
