"In Touch with Hong Kong Artists – A School-based Art Learning Pilot Programme" Briefing Session (Cantonese)
"In Touch with Hong Kong Artists – A School-based Art Learning Pilot Programme" is organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Society for Education in Art. The programme introduces local students to Hong Kong artists and the contemporary art collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art through an array of interactive education activities, including artist interview and demonstration videos, workshops and artist sharing, aiming to familiarise young people with the local art scene.
Trial sessions of the programme were given at pilot schools, introducing to teachers and students six Hong Kong experienced artists: Chu Hing-wah, Li Wei-han, Ou Da-wei, Chan Gaylord, Liu Siu-jane and Auyeung Nai-chim. Through a series of educational activities, students were able to expand their knowledge of Hong Kong artists, their techniques and philosophies of making art. Students created their own works inspired by the artists in the workshops. Teachers also had positive views on the programme. They valued the input of teaching materials of Hong Kong artists into the visual art curriculum, which they felt helps advance art education in Hong Kong.
The briefing session for the pilot programme will be held at the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre at 4pm on 9 October 2015 (Friday). Interested primary and secondary visual arts school teachers are welcome to join. Please complete the application form and fax to 2234 6092 or by email to email@example.com.
