“I learnt that art doesn’t have to conform to popular taste. When we played the board game, I opened up to my classmates. It felt like a relief. I was so relaxed and happy. The blind drawing exercise was really surprising – when I looked at my picture, it was like someone else had drawn it!” Participating student from SKH Lam Kau Mow Secondary School

“In my mind, M+ Rover is like a spaceship taking us to a new life on Mars.” Participating student from Chan Sui Ki (La Salle) College

“Rainbow helped me reflect on the real meaning of ‘beauty’.”  Participating student from HKCCCU Logos Academy

“Working and being creative together was really fun. It made me feel happier than working alone.” Participating student from Fanling Lutheran Secondary School

“I discovered that art doesn’t have to be ‘beautiful’ and ‘realistic’ for other people to enjoy it. No one ever thought I was good at drawing and I lost confidence in myself; but when Rainbow and the team said they liked my observation and style, I was really happy, really touched.” Participating student from Shun Lee Catholic Secondary School

“The thing that affected me most was drawing someone else’s portrait. I heard other people’s stories and realised it’s not just me that does ridiculous things!” Participating student from Christ College

“Not looking at your paper while you draw is less constricting.” Participating student from Immaculate Heart of Mary College

“M+ Rover is a mixture of nature and imagination. I used to walk pretty fast and never paid attention to the strangers around me, but this activity made me start to think about the people who pass by. I’m glad I’ve learnt to communicate with my inner self and change my ideas about creative work. I used to think I had to draw perfectly, but following your heart makes drawing more fun and more interesting to look at. Rainbow’s stories opened my eyes. I really enjoyed the board game and the time spent drawing. Taking part in M+ Rover made art feel like part of our lives. It was really heart-warming.Participating student from Elegantia College (Sponsored by Education Convergence)
