2009 marked a new era for Hong Kong’s senior secondary school curriculum as the new three-year senior secondary and four-year undergraduate academic system was implemented. The new visual arts curriculum emphasises art appreciation, art criticism, and art making. In response, AAA launched a series of Teacher Development Workshops to empower teachers in understanding, appreciating, and engaging in contemporary art. The project served over 70 teachers in two sessions.
We would like to extend our special thanks to Oscar Ho and Lee Weng Choy for conducting the inspiring workshops for teachers.
