Ora-Ora is marking the occasion of Hong Kong artist Sophie Cheung’s first solo exhibition at the gallery with unique art workshops for children aged 4 to 12.
Sophie has recently returned to Hong Kong after completing an MA in Applied Anthropology and Community Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. The artist will be leading the workshops personally: with experience as a teacher in Hong Kong, Sophie is passionate about an inclusive approach to education and openness to all abilities.
The artist was recently the subject of an article in the South China Morning Post highlighting her use of erasers and newsprint to explore the passing of physical landmarks and cultural memories. These are themes currently on display at her Ora-Ora solo exhibition Erasing Time until September 25.
The workshop will last 45 minutes and include a three-stage pathway to learning, fun, and creative imagination. In the spirit of Sophie Cheung’s practice, children are asked to bring alone from home some of their own used erasers to contribute to the artist’s research and collection. In exchange, the children will be provided new erasers from the artist, which will be used to create artworks together during the workshop. There will be the chance to make friends, draw, and appreciate the sensory experience of handling artistic materials.
