sris-artistRecently, the Shanghai Rego International School (REGO) primary art club, ASA, was privileged to receive a wonderful visit from two well established and passionate Shanghainese artists from the local community. Miss Yin Zhuang and her father Mr Yin Dong Quan, who is a member of the Shanghai Artists Association, visited REGO to meet the ASA art pupils and share their knowledge and experience of art. In addition to exploring and exhibiting their personal work, the two artists run the Dong Quan Art Studio together and between them have a wealth of experience of teaching a variety of mediums of art.
The children were very excited to meet ‘real life artists’ and gave the visitors a warm REGO welcome to the school. The children, from Y1 to Y6, had an amazing time and were extremely enthusiastic to show off their art skills to the visitors.
The two visitors enjoyed their time at REGO so much that they returned on Monday to complete some portrait sketches of staff members, which will be exhibited in Mr Yin Dong Quan’s forthcoming exhibition.
On the request of Miss Van Reijn, Primary Art Coordinator, they also joined class 1B for their afternoon art lesson. Mr Yin Dong Quan completed a large frieze-sized portrait of all the children in class 1B. The children were amazingly patient and enjoyed the experience of sitting for a professional portrait.
Mr Yin Dong Quan has very kindly offered to loan the work to the school to be displayed in the primary reception area for all to view and enjoy.
SRIS is honored to have established links with the local art community for the benefit of the children.
