Continuing the creative journey of the SEN students
After a year-long lock down, the Caritas Lok Yi School students finally had the chance to meet our Volunteers last 12 July thanks to an artjamming™ session organised by Project Leader Vivian Mock and artjamming™ founder, Betty Cheung.
Having met the full Covid 19 vaccination requirement, four Volunteers were allowed to enter the school to meet with thirty-six students. Another three Volunteers joined on Zoom.
Social distancing measures were strictly observed with the students and volunteers divided into 4 teams spread out across separate rooms. Betty, ably assisted by our Volunteers, gently guided the students on the best colour combinations in creating their drawings. Students were encouraged to experiment with their preferred drawing stance by sitting at a desk or standing with an easel. Betty and the Volunteers moved through the rooms, providing each student with individualised attention.
Vivian Mock said, “Last time, we turned the paintings into t-shirts. This time, we will combine all the drawings into one large collage painting. Betty was so kind in helping us print the all the paintings onto a drawstring bag that will be offered to each student as a souvenir.”
Antonia Chan, Warden of the School, said, “I was delighted by the creativity of our students! The artistic journey is specially meaningful to the Lok Yi School’s boys and girls. The beauty of today’s art jamming session was that it was totally inclusive because even our students with the more severe mental and physical disabilities joined in an afternoon of fun!”
