Stained glass is an art form that is rarely studied or worked with in Hong Kong. The Emerging Artist Mentorship Programme: Stained Glass strand offers eight visual art graduates the unique opportunity to work alongside professional artist Wong Yan-yan and expand their creative skills by learning to create colourful stained glass art pieces inspired by fairy tales.
The Emerging Artist Mentorship Programme is a new initiative launched by Standard Chartered Arts in the Park to support young artists and help a new generation of creative talent develop confidence, endurance and adaptability. The programme is split into three strands: Stained Glass, Wearable Art and Theatre. Led by local professional artists, the programme provides learning, professional development and career opportunities for young artists to help them establish their careers.
