第一堂, 其中一位小朋友已經興奮到把顔料弄到手踭, 相信一定是個非常好玩的工作坊！
We are pleased to say we are now working together with The Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children to offer even more Make it Better workshops.
The first one went down a treat: one of the students had paint up to his elbows. Must have been a good workshop.
And we are off again.... Fine Art Asia 2013 will have a massive Lizzie Bee installation hanging and we are very proud of it. The work is made by 5 year old kids of the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children and lovingly assembled by volunteers.
After Art Basel, we will now also be at Fine Art Asia where we will be unveiling our latest art piece, made by 5 year old participants from the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children and funded by the Sovereign Art Foundation.
It is our biggest and boldest work so far so come and have a look from 4-7 October 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
We had a great time in the park on Saturday and the printing workshop is coming along nicely. On the 23rd we will use our designs to print them on canvas!

Make It Better is the latest Lizzie Bee project in partnership with the Sovereign Art Foundation and SoCO.
The project is a series of art workshops with kids in Sham Shui Po. It's about believing that you can make things better, even if you are a kid.

Last week, we visited the finalists' exhibition at the Mandarin Oriental. The yearly competition aims to celebrate the importance of art in the education system and tries to celebrate the quality of art that can be produced by young students in Hong Kong.
It was an exceptionally good exhibition and voting was hard. The prize is quite unique as the winner will not only get a personal prize but he/she will also win another HK$50,000 for the school they attend.
You can still cast your vote online or wait until 20 February for he exhibition to open up one last time at Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre.

show me and I may remember;
