Colour My World
Colour My World brings ART to ART HK 11
Colour My World was founded in January 2000 with an aim to introduce art into the community. With our team of practising artists and educators we help to nurture and bring self-expression, individuality and creative freedom to all the budding artists and enthusiasts out there.
Art is not just for the connoisseurs! It’s for the expressive, the creative and the wildly curious minds that question and understand the colours, shapes and patterns that catch the eyes.
Participate in ART HK 11 this year to get a taste of contemporary arts with Colour My World. We’ll give your children aged 5 years and up an exciting new perspective on the visual arts with a guided tour of key sculptures, paintings and installations from local and international artists.
Also…Colour My World will be inviting select school groups to tour with us this year as an introduction to community driven art education.
So come unleash your creative intellect and encourage your children to enjoy the best of ART HK 11 with Colour My World!
New to Buying Art Tour
Time Out Art Tours - an introduction to buying art
While there is the perception that art collecting is something only the wealthy do, many of us can have the pleasure of owning original art. This interactive tour, hosted by Time Out Hong Kong Magazine, will give you the lowdown on art buying at the Fair, what to look out for, buying etiquette, as well as to view an interesting collection of works for under USD$5,000 from galleries participating in the ART FUTURES and ASIA ONE sections of ART HK 11.
Lasting roughly an hour, the tours will include a brief talk on "the essentials of starting a collection", "special viewing", and Q and A session. The small groups will be led by Time Out contributing editors and columnists with a background on art writing, editing and consulting.
