This workshop is organized for HKU Museum Society members and family. Participants will join an educational child-friendly guided tour to view the Mexican Modernity: 20th-Century Paintings from the Zapanta Mexican Art Collection exhibition, which follows the development of styles of Mexican art and their relationship with Mexico’s societal and political changes.

The instructor will demonstrate collage techniques and the children will have the opportunity to create their own collages by using various materials such as paper, ribbons and beads. In the art demonstration,the instructor will explain the type of art materials and their characteristics that were used in these works and the children will be able to create their own work by using watercolour pencils, soft pastels, charcoal and crayons.

This event will be conducted in Cantonese supplemented with English. Every child must be accompanied by an adult. Due to limited capacity, only 1 adult will be admitted with 1 child inside the workshop. Please feel free to bring your own child-friendly scissors and apron if deemed necessary.
