【信報】赴英國讀美術海闊天空

Art Basel是每年的藝壇盛事,醉心藝術的同學仔觀摩了世界級藝術作品,相信更鞏固他們施展自己藝術才華的決心。

 

不少人都知我讀經濟出身,但其實我也讀過Fine Art,可用親身經驗跟大家分享。在英國唸藝術跟香港的分別很大,例如香港教畫多以技巧行先,講求像真度。家長見到畫室教出來的作品畫得「好似幅相咁靚」,就會覺得值得報讀。我記得在英國學畫時,班上常有畫得最靚的畫得不到高分,反而充滿創意的作品,即使技術不足,卻能得到老師的賞識。

 

給予學生空間,相信是在英國唸藝術跟香港的最大不同。英國A level的四科相當富彈性,即使如我當年已把大學目標鎖定為法律,中學仍可修美術。學校致力建立學生藝術家的身份,裝備他們自信地追求自己的一片天空。老師的角色 ,是領導學生去探索、思考、實驗,表達天馬行空的意念。學生故此都清楚藝術創作不限於畫板畫筆。學生哥的我曾染指行為藝術,用垃圾袋將整個pavilion重重包裹。也曾因對Dalí的溶化時鐘著迷,去工藝室把刀刀叉叉切開、焊熔,並髹上銀色,成了我的得意之作⋯⋯講這麼多,除了為緬懷一下自己的藝術生涯,其實還想說明,英國的學生奉藝術之名想怎樣探索創作都可以,海濶天空。這跟在香港處處制肘在技術上的追求,有關鍵性的區別。

 

想及早栽培子女,英國幾間中學的美術課程辦做得出色,我覺得値得介紹。首個誠意推介是我母校Gresham’s,這個讚我俾得絕無私心,它的美術課採大學那套藝術教育哲學,老師以開明的胸襟去啓蒙學生,學校亦不惜資源全力支持。學校能出到Ben Nicholson這樣的名畫家絕非偶然。

 

位於Somerset 的男女校Queen’s College Taunton, 美術與戲劇是拿手強項,音樂與舞蹈亦馳名,學校的藝術節,每年都吸引逾六千觀眾慕名而至。想揀女校讀美術,Abbots Bromley School 無出其右,建校於1874的它是才女搖籃,名當代藝術家Annie Kevans 便是校友。至於年長一點的同學,Hurtwood House 這間六年級學校以重視發掘學生創意而見稱,其優越美術課程可以給同學仔機會將藝術才華盡情爆發。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
