Dr. Rachel Gadsden’s Trainers’ Training came to a successful end
Jockey Club Inclusive Arts Studio invited renowned U.K. artist Dr. Rachel Gadsden to Hong Kong and hold a series of art courses and lectures last month. Together with our artists with disabilities from the master class, she further gave a talk at the Hong Kong Baptist University’s Academy of Visual Arts.
We are very grateful to have Dr. Gadsden joining us and share her philosophy and methods on art empowerment. She led the participants to express themselves by using the Body Mapping Techniques on an enormous, sized 3m X 1.5m canvas. Participants from both Trainers’ Training Course and Artists’ Master Class have undoubtedly been inspired.
