HK Urban Canvas – Arts Education Programme Seeking Schools Participation and Teachers Workshop

01/01-30/04/2017

Can a gate or shutter be a work of art? HK Urban Canvas, a community art project will show you that they can!

During the project, local artists will be invited to create a series of 20 pieces of community “shutter art” that will be unveiled to the public in different locations on Hong Kong Island in 2017. The project is devised to highlight unique aspects of local culture and enhance community inclusion. Young participants will gain hands-on experience and insight into the different cultural characteristics of various districts.

Through a series of art education programmes, participating artists will lead students to reach out to the community and collect local stories as inspiration for portrait works they will create using sketches, block prints, scrapbook collages, photography and creative writing. The resulting artwork will be showcased in a public exhibition at Comix Home Base in May 2017.

We are now seeking schools interested in taking part in the artist-in-residence programme and teachers workshop. For more information, please contact kinyu@hkyaf.com
