Abstract

This paper reports on a project involving the development of a multimedia and interactive guide that can be used in museums for the learning of visual arts appreciation and criticism. A group of seven university students conducted in-depth studies of ten selected works exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of Art. The students’ findings concerning these artworks were organized and transformed into relevant audio, visual and textual materials in the form of a portable individual interactive guide. The guide was made available to secondary school Visual Arts students visiting the museum. Constructive learning and contextual art appreciation are the guiding principles in the development of the guide. The content of the guide is divided into two areas: 1) background information on each artwork and 2) interactive learning activities. This guide is a collaborative effort between academics, the education sector and community cultural institutions, bringing benefits to each group of participants from these organizations. The paper ends with a discussion on the ways in which the guide can be improved and the benefits brought to project participants.
