From Conceiving to Perceiving
Idea is the soul of an art piece, it brings life to the artwork and generates echoes among viewers. How do artists transform ideas into masterpieces? The answer lies within arts education. Formal art training equips an artistic person with concepts and skill-sets to develop his own unique visual language and consolidate his creative style, and facilitating him to communicate his ideas with the others through artistic means and mediums. As long as the idea inside an art piece can adequately shine through, regardless of its scale and format, a piece of art can always touch one's heart and soul.
The School is proud to be the exclusive Education Partner of the Fine Art Asia for the fifth year. Apart from sharing with everyone the fruits of the formal art training, the art pieces dedicatedly created by students and alumni coming from our Fine Art programmes (mainly from our Bachelor / Master degree programmes), the School is pleased to organize a series of activities alongside the fair, including artist sharing and art workshop, bringing immersive art experience to the audience.
