The pursuit for beauty: from master to novice

The legacy of Master artist Xu Beihong continues to live on in the Xu Beihong International Youth and Children's Arts Competition 2019. Gathering together to remember the Master, the novice artists echoed his passion, artistry and pursuit for beauty.

Co-organized by the Xu Beihong Arts Committee, Renmin University of China Xu Bei Hong School of Arts, the HKFYG and Hong Kong Kam Sing Arts Association, the purpose of the Competition is to encourage understanding and knowledge of Chinese arts and culture, while also nurturing the potential of youth in the arts. Almost 15,000 entries were received from kindergartens to senior secondary schools, demonstrating their keen artistic desire and talent, through Chinese and Western art forms on themes either of their own choices or the special theme of Neighbourhood First which focused on the community. 

Come and join us at the Congregation House, 119 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay to see the talent on display between 1-4 November, or come and congratulate the winners at the Prize Presentation Ceremony on 2 November, 10:30am to 2pm.
