“Summer Art Cadets 2017 – Graffi-Teen Stairs”

This year Friends of Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Museum of Art with Youth Outreach carry this two weeks summer program for Primary and Secondary students.
Blossoming Staircases: Through Art & Learning, the positive thinking would be cultivated into these young minds.
Through a series of workshops, activities and museums visit, participants can understand the technical knowledge and meaning of Graffi.

 

In 2010, the Friends launched The Sound of Art— a successful music series at the Hong Kong Museum of Art.Held on the first Sunday of every month in the Museum foyer, the concert series features local musicians performing classical works by Chinese and Western composers.

 

The concerts are free and open to the public and feature vocal as well as instrumental ensemble performances.

 

The Hong Kong Museum of Art is closed for major renovation and expansion from August 2015. During the upcoming three years, concerts will be held in the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, Kowloon Park.

 

Friends also organize numerous programmes and events for students, including the sponsorship of free bus transportation for schools and other community groups to attend exhibitions at the Museum.
