Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre of the Art Promotion Office is holding the "Art Specialist Course 2017-18 Graduation Exhibition" from today (February 9) to February 24. The exhibition showcases 24 graduates' achievements and shares their creative ideas, and allows the public to appreciate brilliant contemporary art pieces created by up-and-coming artists.

     The Art Specialist Course 2017-18 covered disciplines of Chinese calligraphy and sculpture, and was co-ordinated by experienced artists Chui and Lee.

Established local artists were also invited to teach specific topics and take the students out of the classroom to visit exhibitions and artists' studios as well as conduct outdoor studies, in order to fortify the aesthetical understanding of the students and broaden their conceptual boundaries.
