Art Loop Childrens' Workshops and Tours

Children’s Education Partner, Art Loop, offered interactive, entertaining and informative art tours at Art Central 2023 to introduce art and art history to children between 4 and 12 years old.

Tours were conducted by Art Loop’s professional instructors and led children to walk through gallery booths and curated projects at the fair, giving children an opportunity to learn how to appreciate art and help them develop critical thinking skills while considering different styles, techniques and artistic subjects of the exhibited artwork at Art Central.

Children ages 4 to 12 were eligible to participate in a special hour-long immersion course which included an art workshop and a guided fair tour.

About Art Loop

Art Loop (www.artloop.hk/) is an art studio dedicated to quality art education and creativity for learners aged between 3 and 18 years, including adults! We believe “Art is a process, Not a product”. Children should be given the freedom to think creatively and choose how they would like to create, while being guided by necessary art techniques and art history knowledge. There is no better way for children to improve their communication skills, experience the artistic atmosphere, and train their artistic language.

The Sovereign Art Foundation: Spectrum of Emotion Workshop

The Sovereign Art Foundation hosted an interactive and educational workshop centred around experiencing emotions through art.

Following a self-guided tour using a specially-published booklet, participants explored the fair and reflected on a selection of artworks exhibited at eight partner galleries. The activity culminated in a creative workshop hosted at The Sovereign Art Foundation booth onsite. Designed for children aged 6 to 12, the activity was free of charge and welcomed visitors of all ages.

The Sovereign Art Foundation (https://www.sovereignartfoundation.com/) is a charity founded in 2003 that uses the therapeutic power of expressive arts to support wellbeing and positive change in vulnerable children.

The unique approach of its flagship programme, Make It Better, combines expressive arts workshops for children with special educational needs in Hong Kong with education, training and support for their caregivers and educators, delivering real impact.

The Sovereign Art Foundation‘s established fundraising model uses regional art prizes to recognise and promote contemporary artists, whilst raising funds to support its core mission. These art prizes offer supporters a remarkable opportunity to engage with the contemporary art world while supporting a worthwhile cause. This model has so far raised over US$11 million for artists and charities worldwide.
