Theme: Exploring how art is integrated into many aspects of Chinese American culture shows us that art is an important part of everyone’s life.
Taken from an old Chinese legend, a poor boy who longs to paint is given a magic paintbrush that brings everything he paints to life.

LeVar explores how art is integrated into many aspects of the Chinese American culture. He takes a trip to New York City’s Chinatown and visits with an expert of Chinese calligraphy, a stonecarver who makes LeVar a name stamp, and a gourmet Chinese chef. He also takes viewers to the New York Institute of Technology where he is shown how to use computer graphics to create art. Then he participates in a Chinese parade.
