Art For All
Overview and Enrolment Information

Art For All

Art for All comprises short courses across a vast variety of topics and mediums.  The courses are usually offered on short-term or even one-off basis, with a duration ranging from one day to a quarter.  The short courses under this category are designed to be open to all who love art, especially those who hope to gain hands-on studio practicing experience and get an initial taste of different art mediums or topics, they basically welcome all art lovers aged 16* or above.   

 

The courses mostly provide students or beginners with an introductory understanding towards different artistic topics or mediums, igniting their interest in art.  Nevertheless, some of the courses also welcome returning students to enroll repeatedly, in order to help them build up and strengthen their corresponding skills and knowledge.   New topics and disciplines are being brought from time to time in to further enrich the variety of course choices, and to bring the students closer to the contemporary art trends and art practices.
