HA NOI (VNS) — Paintings of children and artists in Mountain Star programme 2015 are on display at the "Chroma of Rock" exhibition, which opened yesterday in Ha Noi.

The Mountain Star programme, a charity art project, was initiated in 2014 by Taiwanese student Kuo Yen Wei, a research student of Vietnamese Studies at Ha Noi National University.

This year, the second Mountain Star project continues in poor villages of Ha Giang's Quan Ba District with the participation of 20 contemporary Vietnamese artists.

Painter Luong Xuan Doan, vice chairman of the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association, said on the opening day: "I believe by living with children, artists can practice resilience. They can open their minds by embracing themselves in the beauty of nature."

More than a hundred children aged 8 to 11 attended a fine arts teaching programme by experienced artists which aimed to support the disadvantaged ethnicchildren in Viet Nam by art education.

The children were all delighted to be using professional tools and painting on huge pieces of canvases what they dreamed about, things they adore in life.

The exhibition also features paintings of contemporary Vietnamese artists which depict the contrast between days and nights, lights and shadows in the northern mountainous villages.

The event runs until October 16 at the exhibition centre 29 Hang Bai Street. — VNS
