Encouraged by Prof. Chuan Shen, the Head of the Department at the time, the first cohort of Fine Arts students established The Fine Arts Society in December 1978. Prof. Chuan Shen was invited to be the Honorary President of the Society.
Even since its establishment, the Fine Arts Society has been actively organizing a wide range of activities, not only for students but also for the general public. In 1979 and 1980, the Society organized the Hong Kong Calligraphy Competition and Ink Painting Competition, attracting more than hundreds of participants to join the competitions.
The Society also organized events, such as academic seminars, museum visits, different kinds of social gatherings, fund-raising events, you name it. All these precious moments that we shared with our teachers and classmates, were times that we would never forget.
