Explorer’s Art   (3 – 4.5 yrs)

Kaleidoscope Republik

Referencing photographs of Hong Kong skylines, buildings and aerial shots, artists will plan and draw their own fantasy landscapes. Influenced by Austrian artist/architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser, our little Explorers will have at their disposal, acrylic and squeegee paints, paste paper, as well as their creative minds! On a sizeable 50x60cm canvas, interpretations of the Hong Kong city space will be transformed and then constructed 3-dimensionally.

Core Art   (4.5 yrs+)

Kaleidoscope Republik

Embrace and reconnect with the harmony of our natural environment. Using colour, shape and texture as a tool to ‘revive’ Hong Kong landscapes, here’s your chance to bring flat grey buildings to life in a large–scale group painting. Study Friedensreich Hundertwasser’s artwork of colour and flowing form as well as his work advocating environmental protection to create this gigantic masterpiece.

Also inspired by Hundertwasser’s use of tones and hues, and a focus on marine habitats, create an experimental felting project, layering whimsical shades of merino wool to form an abstract fibre art piece.
