Forms Four to Seven students at Chong Gene Hang College are impressing visitors with their artistic potential at an exhibition at the Hong Kong Arts Centre. The exhibition, entitled - Impression, features 20 paintings with different themes. According to the school's art teacher, George Lee Ming-kwong, the name of the exhibition has an embedded meaning. ' means 'beginning' or 'start',' Mr Lee said. '[We picked this name] because students are at an early first stage. The works are their first artistic impressions.' The exhibition, which runs till July 14, aims to encourage students to come up with creative artworks. It also displays the students' talents to the public and gives them a sense of satisfaction. 'Having their artworks appreciated by the public gives the students a confidence boost,' Mr Lee said. 'They also learn to work with and encourage each other through the exhibition.' He said the students were very enthusiastic and were also involved in promoting the exhibition and decorating the venue. 'I'm very happy that my painting is on display,' fourth former Lam Yau-sum said. 'I want to show [my painting] to more people.' Form Five student Patrick Yiu Pak-tun was also excited about having his artwork displayed in public at a prominent venue. Although Pak-tun has to sit the HKCEE this year, he still spent many Saturdays in the school's art room working away on his painting. 'I consider [drawing] a hobby instead of an assignment or a task,' he explained.
