Art to Inspire New Ways of Thinking in EDFA Initiatives
Following a successful fund-raising cocktail hour held recently, the Education Development Foundation Association (EDFA) is set to launch a series of art and culture initiatives designed to help 6-12 year old children think outside of the box.
More than 200 people attended the charity event on Tuesday 7 December, bidding for limited edition silkscreen prints of eight original Old Master Q cartoon strips by renowned artist Mr. Wong Chak. Mr Wong’s simple, humorous style is a Hong Kong treasure, appealing to readers of all ages and inspiring people around the world.
The funds raised from the event will allow EDFA to follow in Old Master Q’s footsteps and stage a series of art jams for primary school children in collaboration with local artists and art teachers. Involving far more than painting on canvas, the art jams will challenge children to create in new ways, to re-imagine and re-colour their own worlds. Whether they use conventional materials or bring together recycled objects, the emphasis will be on thinking beyond the ordinary.
Since 1995, EDFA has been facilitating experiential learning across a broad social spectrum. Its concept of education covers activities that allow people to think, interact, learn, relearn and grasp the opportunities around them. EDFA is a registered charity that helps reshape people’s lives.
