Summer Art Cadets 2014 – An Animated Virtual Tour around Hong Kong
With the generous support of The Friends of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Summer Art Cadets was first held in 2008 with an aim toward encouraging children and teenagers to discover their creativity and abilities through the making of art. Since then, it has become a special annual summer art event which has served around 190 children and teenagers from different backgrounds in Hong Kong.
This year, with the partnership of SCAD Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the Friends of the Hong Kong Museum of Art co-organised a programme for senior secondary school students. Using 3D animation as a creation tool, students showed their knowledge and enthusiasm for the art world. In this two-week intensive art experience that included workshops and tours, 16 students from different secondary schools in Hong Kong visited the latest exhibitions at the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, and learned how to create animations using professional software under the supervision of Mr Kinson Cheung, the Professor of Animation of SCAD Hong Kong. Students were not only able to explore their potential and creativity but also experienced the joy of art making. Please come to enjoy their collaborative animation video "An Animated Virtual Tour around Hong Kong" now showing at the Lobby of Basement.
