Colour My World Engineering Creative Workshops at Tai Kwun Contemporary Family Day

Colour My World Engineering Creative Workshops at Tai Kwun Contemporary Family Day

With the October opening of Tai Kwun Contemporary’s brand-new group exhibit, “Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk In the Year of the Future”, comes brand new Family Day creative workshops. As always, we relate the art activities to the exhibit theme, which in this case revolve around grand futuristic visions and thoughts about our ever-evolving technological strides. Thanks to the imagination and skills of Colour My World team, we have come up with two projects for the family visitors. “Animatronics Armour” lets us create and design a functioning “mechanical” arm that, through the kinetic effect of rings and strings, encourages foundation engineering as well as personal artistic flair. Simultaneously, “Cyber Metropolis” focuses on how to assemble and enhance with decorative illustration our very own future city-night lamp out of card and florescent colour.

We aspire to match playfulness with education by letting our young learners try their hands at fun, creative challenges, and if the responses from our opening Family Day is anything to go by, this concept is working better than ever. And hey, if parents continue to re-discover the joy of the creative process as adults, that’s a huge plus as well.

After witnessing a full day of family joy with collaboration and friendly competition, I leisurely strolled around the fair grounds. As I entered the contemporary art exhibit, I took out my sketchbook and, through the lens of my own artistic interpretations, jotted down some of the various masterpieces on display. The final result ended up being a summary of my experiences within the amazing new exhibit.
