This year, a new initiative has been started in Hall 10: Art Club! As a part of the club, every fortnight, residents would gather to learn a new kind of art, and with it, the culture and its significance. With a motive to promote cultural diversity and a sense of nurturing the inner artist in everyone of us, the Art club has been a successful event in Hall 10.  Starting with our first session, traditional Henna from Indian culture, we also learned many other forms of art together. Other interesting art forms that had been shared were Chinese calligraphy and Japanese Origami, where various international students shared the secret behind the art form from their cultures. Apart from cultural art, the art club also focused on ‘environmentally friendly art’ or ‘Eco-art’ which involved making recycled art out of used plastic materials like bottles. The various art forms shared during the Art club events have been proudly displayed in Hall 10’s lobby.  Having taken various dimensions of promoting a sense of art and cultural sharing, Hall 10 Art club has been a success!

今年,舍堂十開辦了美術學會這項新活動。美術學會的成員每逢雙週便聚首一堂,學習不同種類的藝術、箇中文化及其重要性。美術學會本著兩個宗旨:推廣文化多樣性和發掘同學內在的藝術細胞。第一節課介紹印度傳統彩繪指甲花,同學都獲益良多。除此以外,還接觸到中國毛筆書法以及日本摺紙手工,交流生更分享了各自文化背後不為人知的故事。美術學會不但涉獵地道文化藝術,而且提倡環保藝術,即利用二手膠料如膠樽製作再生藝術品。製成品曾於舍堂十大堂展出。美術學會以不同方式促進藝術品味和文化交流,取得空前成功﹗
