M+ Online Teacher Programme: Live sketching as an art learning experience

The M+ Online Teacher Programme, launched in summer 2020, is a series of online sharing sessions on teaching and learning by scholars, creatives, and teachers. Through this programme, we hope to promote peer exchange and nurture a learning community. This winter, we invite Wong Chun Hei, landscape painter and educator, to share with us his creative and pedagogical concepts.

About the sharing
Now we can capture a moment in less than a second and search a million images with just one click. However, landscape painter Wong Chun Hei takes slow-paced live sketching as the origin of his artistic practice and makes it a key to learning. M+ invites Wong to discuss his ideas and work and the ways in which live sketching can be an entry point for students to explore painting’s possibilities. He will also lead a live online activity to allow participants to experience live sketching in a different way.
