Jockey Club "Museum of Art on Wheels" Outreach Learning Programme
The Jockey Club "Museum of Art on Wheels" Outreach Learning Programme is a mobile art museum which travelled to schools and different communities in the three years from 2015 to 2018. With the themes of "Transformation" (1st school year) and "Hong Kong Sign．Hong Kong Signature" (2nd and 3rd school years), the mobile art museum developed some inspiring interactive computer games based on the rich collections of the museum, brining art to every corner of the city! In the past three years, the mobile art museum benefits nearly 300 primary and secondary schools, attracting more than 160,000 students and members of the public to visit on board.
The programme also invited 30 local artists to organise workshops and online project on Facebook, enabling the participants to communicate and create with the artists together. The content of the workshops ranged from performance art, light graffiti to eco creations, demonstrating the diversity and liveliness of art while also enhancing the understanding of the public towards local artists.
The mobile museum had completed its service in July 2018. We have transformed the games on the art truck into online learning resources, reaching out to even more schools and a wider public.
In Touch with Hong Kong Artists – A School-based Art Learning Pilot Programme
"In Touch with Hong Kong Artists – A School-based Art Learning Pilot Programme" is organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Hong Kong Society for Education in Art. The programme introduces local students to Hong Kong artists and the contemporary art collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art through an array of interactive education activities, including artist interview and demonstration videos, workshops and artist sharing, aiming to familiarise young people with the local art scene.
Trial sessions of the programme were given at pilot schools, introducing to teachers and students six Hong Kong experienced artists: Chu Hing-wah, Li Wei-han, Ou Da-wei, Chan Gaylord, Liu Siu-jane and Auyeung Nai-chim. Through a series of educational activities, students were able to expand their knowledge of Hong Kong artists, their techniques and philosophies of making art. Students created their own works inspired by the artists in the workshops. Teachers also had positive views on the programme. They valued the input of teaching materials of Hong Kong artists into the visual art curriculum, which they felt helps advance art education in Hong Kong.
