Exhibition of Secondary School Students' Creative Visual Arts Work (2010/11) (with photos)

     Members of the public are invited to visit the Exhibition of Secondary School Students' Creative Visual Arts Work (2010/11), organised by the Arts Education Section of the Curriculum Development Institute of the Education Bureau (EDB) from tomorrow (December 30) to January 22, 2011 at the EDB Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre.

     The exhibition aims to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their creativity and artistic ability in the visual arts, and promoting communication among students, teachers and the public. This year, around 350 artworks are exhibited. These exhibits have been selected from 1,193 entries submitted by 140 secondary schools. The artwork covers different topics and a wide range of media such as drawing, painting, printmaking, media art, photography, sculpture, ceramics and design. An artist's statement is attached to each artwork, which provides viewers with more information for appreciating and interpreting the work.

     In order to encourage more students of various ages to submit entries, participants are categorised into two age groups in the selection of awards, i.e. 12 to 14 years old and 15 years old or above. Grand prizes and honourable mentions are selected from four media -- two-dimensional work, three-dimensional work, Chinese painting and calligraphy, and media art -- in each age group. Prizes are book coupons and certificates.

     The Arts Education Section was honoured to have Dr Kan Tai-keung, (Dean of the Cheung Kong School of Art and Design, Shantou University), Dr Ho Siu-kee (Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University), Mr Kum Chi-keung (artist) and Ms Wong Lai-ching (Lecturer/Subject Co-ordinator of the Hong Kong Art School) as adjudicators to select the prize winners from the exhibits created by individual students. The selection criteria included creativity, aesthetics, manipulation of techniques and media, as well as communication.

     Video clippings of interviews with the adjudicators, who share their views on the artworks, are shown during the exhibition.
