Our school has provided sufficient facilities to enable students to have the best experience of learning. VA lesson is different from the other subject. We need more explorations and observations. Therefore, we may sometimes move the lesson outside the VA classroom, such as the library, playground, or further the art museums or exhibitions in Hong Kong.

Therefore, HLC’s Visual Arts lesson is not only an art making lesson, but also a practical and interesting learning experience.
