Children & parents expressive art course

Children & parents expressive art course

An art class that accompanies the growth of children to create on-site experience

Due to the impact of the epidemic, children mostly stay at home, and most of them receive knowledge unilaterally in class. They lack real learning experience and opportunities to contact others, which hinders the development of social interaction. Course leaders lead children to create art in classroom activities, allowing children to learn to create together on the spot, and also guide them to learn to share and appreciate each other. In the beauty of creation, parents can also reduce the pressure of daily accumulation and spend a good time together!

Angie Lee, the instructor of the expressive arts course, has extensive experience in leading children/parent-child expressive art workshops, including: Heep Hong Society (parent-child for children with special educational needs), We Centre Community Inclusion Center (South Asian Children's Group, Local Children's Group), Mark Memorial Home (Children's Residential Home), Wong Tai Sin Caritas (Parent-Child for Children with Special Educational Needs), Caritas Caine Road, Grace Church, Yiu Xin Education, Lockhart Road Library (South Asian and Local Children), Bishop Gao Secondary School (Junior Secondary Class) and Clean Kindergarten, etc.
