More than twenty teachers from Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute majoring in Visual Communication Design recently visited Six Arts Museum. Led by Dean Wang Weishan, the teachers conducted a professional inspection tour of the art and design exhibited in the Six Arts Museum.
Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute is the first higher vocational college of art design established in China.
The Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute aims to cultivate highly qualified technical art design talent through their focus on the cultivation of excellence in professional artistic skills and moral integrity, as well as ingenuity and dexterity. The Institute is devoted to deepening the reform of education and teaching, and attaches great importance to the cultivation of excellent teachers.
The teachers came to Six Arts Museum this time for professional investigation focused on traditional folk arts, museum gallery space and exhibition design, collection display methodology, and the creation of cultural and creative products.
The Institute’s teachers analyzed from a professional art, craft and design perspective, the Six Arts Museum’s rich folk art collection as well as the design of its exhibition galleries which uniquely combine elements of both Chinese and Western culture. The teachers gained artistic and design knowledge and inspiration from their visit, which they intend to subsequently apply in their classrooms.
