About the Workshop:
Constructing a craftwork with popsicle sticks can be more than just an arts-and-crafts project. Besides imagination and creativity, it also requires technical skills and calculation to make the final work balanced, and even functional. This Open Studio workshop is perfect for those who are interested in integrating science skills into an arts and craft project. For young visitors, it is also a fun workshop where they can try and create their own constructions with popsicle sticks.
About the Series:
The history of modern Chinese art has been dominated by the study of male artists. To turn the attention towards female artists from 20th century China, Asia Society Hong Kong Center proudly presents The Hong Kong Jockey Club Presents — Painting Her Way: The Ink Art of Fang Zhaoling, featuring artworks by the innovative painter Fang Zhaoling. As an artist, Fang was remarkable in her perseverance, in her unwavering lifelong pursuit of her art, and in her ultimate artistic success. Her art is rooted in her Chinese heritage.
Open Studio is a space where artists of all ages can create, share and connect through art. Throughout three Sundays within the exhibition period, from 11:00am to 6:00pm, the Lippo Amphitheater at Asia Society Hong Kong Center will turn into a venue for participants of all ages to create their own work that responds to the exhibition and the artist, Fang Zhaoling. All art materials will be supplied and educators will be present at the venue to provide assistance.
Participants are welcome to share their finished artworks on social media using the hashtag #ASHKFangZhaoling and #PaintingHerWay.
