Ying Jinfei said that ZJAM, as a key public cultural institution under the ZPDCT, has been actively building a large arts education platform for social arts education since its inception. It provides a wide range of arts education services for young people with carefully planned art exhibitions and hundreds of public education sessions hosted each year.

With full support from HBERC, Curator Ying believed that they would implement the Support Program practically and excellently to really help all teachers.

On behalf of HBERC, Director Zhu Ke first thanked ZJAM for providing arts education resources for art teachers in the 13 counties and districts of Hangzhou and schools directly under the Hangzhou Education Bureau. At the same time, he said that arts education is an organic combination of aesthetics and pedagogy and that “Educating Five Domains Simultaneously” has become a consensus in society. He also said that ZJAM provided art teachers in Hangzhou with a rich and practical arts education resource library, allowing them to jointly build and share high-quality arts education resources. This was a highly significant contribution to the development of arts education in schools. He sincerely expected to have more opportunities to cooperate with ZJAM in promoting the development of arts education in Hangzhou.

Professor Yang Zhenyu said in his speech that ZJAM is a practitioner of common spiritual prosperity. When art is better understood as a way to share spiritual wealth, the value of art works will become more considerable. In recent years, the School of Arts and Humanities of CAA and ZJAM have cooperated in holding many excellent arts education activities and exhibitions, such as academic forums titled “West Lake Art Forum: A Journey to Arts and Humanities” and “Observation: The Creation and Research of Chinese Flower and Bird Paintings”. They shared the same understanding and expectations of what art is in each new era. He extended special congratulations to ZJAM for taking a big step forward in the undertaking of social arts education through the Support Program.

In his speech, Professor Han Lu shared his thought and vision on the development, mission and significance of arts education. He said that under the support of the Party’s and the country’s education policies and through the continuous efforts of arts educators, arts education has evolved from a shortage of arts teachers in the past to the “100 schools and 100 teachers” and “1,000 schools and 1,000 teachers” and even “10,000 schools and 10,000 teachers” in the future. He expressed the best wish for an eternal spring for arts.

Zhang Haizhen, secretary of the Party Committee and president of HBG (HWLALS), delivering a speech

President Zhang Haizhen said that it was a great honor to work with ZJAM to open up a new chapter of co-constructing and sharing arts education resources and to forge ahead on a new journey of improving the practical quality of arts education. If education flourishes, the country will flourish, and if education is strong, the country will be strong. In the context of arts education in the new era, HBG will continue this partnership with ZJAM to create a new model of arts education practice. They will deepen the cooperation, provide complementary resources, jointly develop practice courses with arts education characteristics, and promote innovation in arts education in the new era.

At the Seminar

Over more than decade since it was established, ZJAM has been reviewing and studying the modern art in Zhejiang. It collects nearly 30,000 art classics from Zhejiang which have now been fully digitized. These valuable arts education resources will become common wealth for arts education workers and lend practical support in every art class. ZJAM will fully open these digital resources to arts teachers in primary and secondary schools in Hangzhou within two years. Relying on the online education platform of “Art Museum in a Box”, it will study and explore arts education practices suitable for primary and secondary school students with HBERC and will invite artists and first-line arts teachers to develop courses together.

ZJAM will do its best to explore and refine new models of museum-school cooperation, provide true teaching support for arts teachers, and effectively promote the penetration of arts to grassroots.
