With the theme of ‘Exploring Arts’ this year, ‘Creative+ Arts Day Camp 2022’ has invited four arts organisations from different fields including ‘Toolbox Percussion’, a percussion band, ‘Ting Art Studio’, a diversified arts studio, ‘Snow Sand Art’, a sand painting studio and ‘Make Friends with Puppets’, a local puppet troupe, to design four interesting online arts workshops. Instructed by tutors, students were able to experience different modes in art creation, integrate art into their lives and to feel, experience and explore the colourful world of art!

Youth Square has been providing a relaxed, reliable and safe environment for youth to explore every possibility of their potentials.
