Art Center

Starting to take shape in its preparatory stage in October, 2000, the Art Center was first made possible with the budget granted from the Ministry of Education. Meanwhile, the TCFSH Teachers¡¦ Association launched a fund-raising campaign aimed at the ¡§promotion of the birth of the Art Center, ¡¨ which pooled the funds needed for the first-period construction of the exhibition rooms. The grand opening followed shortly afterwards. The very first exhibition, ART IN TCFSH, took place on September 21st, 2001.

The second-period construction included the completion of the Center Office, the Conference Room, the Audiovisual Seminar Room, the Collection Room, the Tea Lounge and other relevant outdoor indexical systems. These, in turn, function perfectly well side by side with the facilities established in the first-period construction. The large space of some 1,000 square meters in the basement of the Li-tze Building, incorporated with the delicate and innovative equipments, offers excellent locations for art education and immersion to the staff and students as well as the residents of the community.

Classes of Fine Arts

The first class of fine arts was set up in 1996. Since then, thirty freshmen have been admitted every year, including boys and girls. Serving as the foundation stone of advanced research, the classes of fine arts were established for several purposes, inclusive of the extension of the education of the art-gifted in junior high school, the accumulation of professional knowledge in fine arts and the development of creative thinking, observation, emotional expression and the capacity to appreciate works of art.

These classes are based on the 5th, 6th, and 7th floor of the Li-tze Building, with 18 functional classrooms. Among them, three classrooms are for lectures, while the others are for sketching drawing, watercolor painting, Chinese painting, design, graphic arts, cubistic design, multi-media and evaluation. There are also a small library, a collection room, exhibition rooms, etc. The teaching staff of these classes is competent. Over the past few years, these students¡¦ performances on the college entrance exams have been gorgeous, thus rendering this school the most outstanding institution for the education of the art-talented in central Taiwan.
