Artland Gallery, located at Jalan Leong Sin Nam, Ipoh, hosted a Children Creativity Art Exhibition organised by Focusart, recently. The exhibition aptly named, “This is Me: Love Me, Know Me, Hug Me” lasted for a week beginning August 24 till 31.
It showcased paintings, drawings and sketches by children who came in droves to see their friends’ “masterpieces”. Those whose works were on display were given specially-designed certificates as a form of appreciation and encouragement.
Founder of Focusart, Shum Lai Wan, said that the objective of the exhibition was to provide children a platform to explore their interest and talent in art. She too hoped that it would encourage parents to be more supportive of their children’s ability.
“Drawing and painting enable children to improve their visual eye-hand coordination function besides cultivating patience and good character,” Shum added.
