“Traces of Flowers – Botanical Topiary Plaster Painting” Workshop by SPC Dream Building Team
The Dream Building Team (DBT) is a longitudinal service-learning program of the Shiu Pong College. It is a voluntary organization formed by students with 30 members.
In April, local young artist Zhang Yijun was invited to Shiu Pong College by DBT to hold a workshop on “Traces of Flowers – Botanical Topiary Plaster Painting”. It aimed to bring a different artistic experience to the members of the Dream Building Team.
Plant topiary plaster painting is a unique way of creation. Many people like to decorate their space with plants. Plants grow and bloom elegantly, but eventually they will die. People want to keep their most beautiful appearance somehow, so the art creation of plaster topiary prints emerged.
In the workshop “Traces of Flowers”, Ms. Zhang Yijun guided the students to make plaster paintings with traces of flowers and plants through demonstration and creation. The students could not only make plaster paintings for themselves, but also for the children in ECF Inc Fellowship Orphanage Macau. Through this workshop, we hope to continue the connection between the Dream Building Team and the children and share this unique and botanical art form with the children.
This is the first time that the Dream Building Team collaborates with local artists in Macau. The main purpose of the workshop is to present the unique and eternal botanical beauty to the children in ECF Inc Fellowship Orphanage Macau, in order to maintain the connection between the students and the children under the unique circumstances of the epidemic, and to spread the love.
