Educators in the field of art are one of AAA’s target audience groups. Using the Archive’s physical and online collection as a foundation for teaching and learning, AAA serves as a laboratory and peer network for instigating thinking, discussion, and collaboration in the classroom.
School Tours & Visits
AAA welcomes school groups to visit the Archive, encouraging students to think of the Archive as a place where they can study, read, and expand their knowledge of the visual arts. Tailor-made workshops are offered to visiting school groups to facilitate research fitting their learning goals. For a list of organisations that have visited AAA, click here.
Teaching Labs & AAA Teaching CommunityAsia Art Archive organises Teaching Labs, an annual professional development series to build a supportive learning community in partnership with Hong Kong schools and educators. AAA is committed to encourage confidence in using contemporary art and culture in an educational setting. After participating in Teaching Labs, teachers have the option to join the AAA Teaching Community, a group of devoted secondary school teachers, to work together to develop lesson plans and equip themselves with necessary teaching tools.
AAA Teachers Sounding BoardComprised of visual art teachers from local and international schools in Hong Kong, the Teachers Sounding Board actively provides support and feedback to Learning & Participation’s educators’ programmes—by reflecting on the needs and interests of visual art teachers, while rethinking the role of art in 21st-century education. The group will also facilitate and steer discussions for AAA’s Teaching Community.

Asia Art Archive hosted Ricky Yeung and Patsey Bodkin as our 2015 local and international educators-in-residence.
Yeung explored how art practices in different parts of Asia reflect parallel contemporary themes and issues. He aimed to consolidate material and create thematic modules in an effort to guide teachers to resources beyond their local regions. For more information, please click here.
Bodkin explored how AAA may support the Continuing Professional Development of art educators in Hong Kong and Ireland. Her research will be a reference point for AAA and other local institutes to develop CPD programmes for Hong Kong art teachers. For more information, please click here.
