Art Exhibition Launch @Xitaihu Lake Community Centre

Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou are very pleased to play a partnership role in the local community by collaborating with Xitaihu Lake Community Centre for the very first external exhibition of students’ artwork.

It was highly appropriate that this event launched on Teachers’ Day 2021, and our thanks go to the highly skilled and talented art and music teachers who support the creative work of our students and inspire them to use their imagination and be bold in their expression. Our thanks also go to the students themselves, some of whom attended the official opening, and we congratulate them on officially being published artists!

The creative arts are so important in the lives of our children and for the world in general. By engaging in art activities, children practice a variety of skills and progress in all areas of development. Creative art helps children grow physically, socially, cognitively, and emotionally. Children also practise imagination and experimentation as they invent new ways to create art and music.

The exhibition includes the original musical compositions by nine musicians from the school who selected works by nine of their peers in the art department to inspire their music. The result is an excellent example of the student-centred learning promoted in the Art and Music departments, providing frameworks within which students can develop their skills, explore creative thinking, and find freedom to express themselves.

We hope that you will enjoy viewing this small sample of the many and varied works from our talented children and recommend the exhibition, which will run for the next three months, to your families and friends.
