About Studio Arts Common Core Courses :
In a science and technology university, HKUST sees the value of art education in awakening students’ artistic mind and developing their ability to explore and express in various artistic means, as this will eventually impact on their future career and personal development.
Targeting students with little or no prior exposure to arts, the HKUST Common Core Program offers a variety of studio arts courses that seek to spark their interest in the study of art.
These courses stress hands-on practice of the art form; at the same time introduce students to the basic theories, history, and cultural and social background of that art form.
At the end of the course, students will gain a basic understanding of the arts, and be able to express their affections, ideas and thoughts through the art form or media they learn from the course.
We are now inviting applications for part-time teaching positions at Instructor level for developing and teaching new course proposals, or teaching pre-developed arts courses :
