Social Harmony Project

snapshots of children programme

Hong Kong Heritage Museum has launched "Social Harmony Project: From the Sky above the Museum - for a Better Tomorrow" since 2007, through which the museum hopes to forge a close partnership with non-profit-making social service organisations that care for members from different communities and schools that serve under-privileged groups, in order to provide a platform for them to take part in arts and cultural activities.

"Friendship and More" Social Art Creativity Workshop
In association with the exhibition "Pixar 30 Years of Animation: Hong Kong Celebration of Friendship and Family"

Social development is one of the most important elements of a child's growth. They gradually develop interpersonal skills as they grow up, including during their primary school years, learning how to form friendships step by step. They also start interacting with different people and learning to deal with different situations, including their growing interest in, and awareness of, friendships among the characters in the animations.

This workshop will invite Primary 3 to 5 students who are studying in mainstream primary schools and have special educational needs. The participants will first visit the exhibition to understand the friendships between the cartoon characters. Then they will participate in a sketching workshop, in which the instructor will teach them how to use sketch and colour pencils to start sketching their own artworks, and learn how to use dots, lines, surfaces, brightness, shades and darkness to understand the basic concepts of forms and proportions to create their own artworks. The students will be encouraged to release their inner creative strength, express their emotions, and show their understanding of friendship in their creative works.
