Xingzhi Migrant Art School is a non-profit organization that offers art lessons for the children of migrant workers who otherwise would not have this opportunity. This update was written by Director Gu, the founder of and a teacher at the Art School.
It has been 5 years since the establishment of the Xingzhi Migrant Art School, which aims to provide art education for impoverished youth. These students have never had any art education before, and they also face shortage in school education. So far at the Art School, there are about 300 students, many of whom have already created quality art works despite money shortage. Their works have been confirmed and praised by people across the globe. Xingzhi Migrant Art School believes that technology and training can change each child fate. The School and its dedicated teachers work hard to develop the intellect, curiosity, and independence of these children so that they will start being viewed as equal as any other child their age.
A hand that holds the brush now may become the hand to influence the world in the future. It may be a small hand, but it is full of strength and creativity. It may be a small hand, but it will change future. It may be a small hand, but it is of my own.
