TWGHs “Joint Secondary Schools’ Visual Arts Exhibition 2017” was held between 8 and 10 May 2017 at the Exhibition Gallery, Shatin Town Hall. The Opening Ceremony was held on 8 May 2017, with Dr. TAM Cheung On, Thomas, Associate Professor, Department of Cultural and Creative Arts, Education University of Hong Kong, officiating.
Under the theme of ‘Life and Appreciation of Aesthetics ’, a diverse range of over 150 masterpieces from 18 TWGHs secondary schools were featured in the Exhibition, covering oil painting, calligraphy, computer image, installation art and so on. Besides the aims at promoting the exchange of ideas among students, inspiring their creativities and enhancing their aesthetic visions, the Exhibition also helped teachers optimise the course module of Visual Arts. To encourage students’ creativity, some of the art pieces from the Exhibition were selected and put together into an art album.
The “TWGHs Support and Award Scheme for Elite Sport and Art Students” was launched in 2014 to provide financial support to students who are gifted in sports, music and visual arts to support ongoing training and participation in large-scale or international competitions. An area was reserved in the Exhibition to introduce the Scheme and to demonstrate the creativity of the talented students.
