With the belief that art is an essential part of holistic education, HKSEA has been organising various events and publishing books and journals in order to enhance the quality of art education in Hong Kong. Above all, the Society aims at nurturing a new generation with creative minds and aesthetic sense by providing professional training and support to art teachers of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools.
