Exhibition of Secondary School Students’ Creative Visual Arts Work 2015/16 is organised by the Arts Education Section of the Curriculum Development Institute, Education Bureau (EDB). It aims to display and acknowledge secondary school students’ accomplishments in visual arts creation, enable students and teachers to learn from each other, and enhance the learning and teaching effectiveness of the Visual Arts curriculum. This year, around 500 pieces of artwork have been selected from more than 1,100 entries submitted by 122 secondary schools for exhibition. The artwork includes a wide range of media such as drawing, painting, printmaking, media art, photography, sculpture, ceramics and design. They also cover different themes, showing the young artists’ concerns of their daily life and the current issues in our society.
In order to encourage more students of different ages to submit their entries, the participants are categorised into two age groups for selection of exhibits and awards, i.e. “12 to 14 years old” and “15 years old or above”. Gold Prizes, Silver Prizes and Certificates of Merit are selected from four media, i.e. “2-Dimensional Work”, “3-Dimensional Work”, “Chinese Painting and Calligraphy” and “Media Art”. Book coupons and certificates will be awarded to the Gold and Silver Prizes winners respectively.
