Providing quality art education has been part of the mandate of the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) since its establishment in 1977. Over the past 43 years, we have witnessed the development of a humble education department that provided art courses for leisure to an officially registered art school that offers accredited art degree programmes and the undivided attention and devotion of our colleagues which made what the Hong Kong Art School (HKAS) is today.
In the last 20 years HKAS has played a notable role in grooming generations of art talents in Hong Kong and proudly our graduates have made their mark at home and internationally. HKAS is more than just a school but a community and family of creativity in which our students and teachers bond without boundaries – a true embodiment of the spirit of “Art for All”.
I would like to congratulate and applaud our generations of School Council members and staff for their dedication and diligence, without whom we would not be celebrating the 20th anniversary of HKAS today. I would like to give our special thanks to Ms. Winnie CHIU, our current Chairman of the School Council, whose leadership and dedication have taken HKAS to new heights. Last but not least, my most sincere gratitude to all patrons, donors, sponsors and collaborators for their tremendous support to our art education. Together we shall embark on another twenty years of exciting journey in art.
