Around two dozen primary and secondary school art teachers receive a crash course on mimicking the style of one of the world's most famous painters - taking notes on how to pass on the skills to their students. Over the next few weeks, these teachers hope to inspire their students to paint Hong Kong scenes in the style of Vincent van Gogh, as part of a competition run by ABN Amro with Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation to celebrate a century of the Dutch bank's involvement in Hong Kong. The best 100 works are to go on display next month initially in Central and then Kowloon Tong. 'We want to raise the profile of arts education in Hong Kong,' said Allan Tsui Shek-ming, one of three artists who ran the seminar last Saturday. But some teachers expressed concerns about the tight schedule. 'The works need to be submitted in early October and it is nearly mid-September now,' said Derek Lo Wai-yip from Kwun Tong Kung Lok Government Secondary School. The 'Life in Hong Kong' exhibition will be at Exchange Square, October 18 to 25, then Festival Walk, November 2 to 9.
