Training classes in art allowing underprivileged students to unleash their talents and develop a career in the field

 

The venture will recruit talented underprivileged secondary students in Kowloon City, Wong Tai Sin, Lok Fu and San Po Kong and provide them with training and opportunities of internship as teaching assistants in art classes. The students can enhance their self-esteem, strengthen their capability in art, and earn more income. At the end of the programme, the venture will assist the teaching assistants to prepare their portfolio for their future career in the field of art.

Besides, art classes in high quality will be offered to underprivileged secondary students in those four districts for free or at an affordable price to provide them with an equal opportunity to receive art training and unleash their talents in art. An exhibition will be held to showcase the work of the participating students.
