Some artists will conduct mural and ground painting and create art installations on Sha Tsui Path, Man Nin Street and Po Tung Road. Together with students of Sai Kung District, the artists will also decorate lampposts along the Sai Kung Promenade. Some creations by the artists will be exhibited in Sai Kung Jockey Club Town Hall from 8 – 12 December, where the exhibition hours are from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm.

A wide array of demonstrations and workshops will also be presented, including the creation of a 15-metre-long watercolour painting, Chinese ink painting with Chinese music performance, speed painting, leaf painting and activities to make DIY canvas bags and creative ornaments. A graffiti zone will be set up for visitors to express their creativity on pavements and walls, and musicians will perform to enhance the leisurely atmosphere.

The event is part of the 2017-18 Sai Kung District Music, Arts and Cultural Festival and jointly organised by the Sai Kung District Office, the Working Group on Arts and Cultural Activities under the Sai Kung District Council and the Sai Kung District Community Centre of the Sai Kung Rural Committee.
