A total of 60 children in Chongqing were invited to participate in this activity through public welfare recruitment. The children talked with the famous painter Luo Zhongli face to face, listened to his art experience and learned the stories behind his works, and shared their New Year’s wishes with him by paper folding and other forms of art.
The director of Luo Zhongli Art Museum said they hope to let children use their own hands to create what they think and what they love and to feel Luo Zhongli’s humanistic complex in and out of his paintings by visiting the Fine Arts Institute and the exhibition.

“Every child is a born artist. They have infinite curiosity and earnest pursuit of unknown world. We need to give children a chance to speak out of their wishes and show what they see and think in artistic works,” said Luo Zhongli. (Translated by Xu Mengmiao, Fathom Language Limited)
