Cheongsam-Making through the “ICH+ Innovative Heritage Education Programme” (August 2022)

Twenty-three girls from S1 to S4 participated in “The Jocky Club ICH+ Innovative Heritage Education Programme” (賽馬會「傳‧創」非遺教育計劃 ) in the summer of 2022. The programme, jointly launched by Lingnan University and Hong Kong Art School, aims to preserve, promote, redefine and revitalize the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) of Hong Kong. Cheongsam-making workshops provided a precious opportunity for our students to learn the traditional techniques directly from cheongsam artisans. After they hand-sewed a mini cheongsam, they received guidance from an experienced fashion designer to modify it with some personalized add-ons. Finally, several cheongsams and their drawings were showcased in the Hong Kong Arts Centre.



Mural Painting via the “Hong Kong Move On: NFT X School Mural Art Project” (August 2022)

In August 2022, our school participated in the “Hong Kong Move On: NFT X School Mural Art Project”, co-organized by NetDragon and Cherrypicks. Ten girls from S2 to S5 attended a seminar and learnt the concepts of how blockchain and NFT technologies help to preserve artworks. After that, Miss Blessy Man, an experienced mural artist, visited our school to share her expertise in creating a mural using her signature style of polygons. We chose the theme of “Hong Kong street food”, and our girls spent a few days with Miss Man on the wall outside our Home Management Centre, painting enlarged and polygonised images of an egg tart, a pineapple bun and bubble tea. Adaptations of our mural in the form of NFTs were then showcased to the public.
