     Members of the public are invited to visit the Exhibition of Primary School Students' Creative Visual Arts Work (2014/15), which will be held from tomorrow (June 26) to July 20 at the Education Bureau (EDB) Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre.

     The exhibition, organised by the Arts Education Section of the Curriculum Development Institute of the EDB, aims to display and acknowledge primary school students' accomplishments in visual arts creation, enable students and teachers to learn from each other, and enhance the learning and teaching effectiveness of the visual arts curriculum. This year, around 500 artworks have been selected for exhibition from approximately 1,200 entries submitted by 105 primary schools. The exhibits cover various themes and a wide range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, media art, photography, sculpture, ceramics and design.

     In order to encourage more students of different ages to submit entries, participants are categorised into two age groups - 6 to 8 years old, and 9 years old or above. In each age group, gold prizes, silver prizes and certificates of merit are awarded to artworks of four media, namely 2-Dimensional Work, 3-Dimensional Work, Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, and Media Art.

     The adjudicators selecting the exhibits and awarded entries are art professionals, namely Dr Hui Ming-fai, Mr Yeung Wai-fung, Mr Lam Hiu-tung and Mr Chan Che-kwong, as well as representatives of the Arts Education Section.
