HCMC – Quang Trung Software City Development Company (QTSC) and the Saigon Times Foundation (STF) have jointly launched the “Dream Color” program, which will start from June 1, 2022 to June 1, 2023, offering participants chances to find talent for painting and receive support to nurture the dream of becoming artists.
In the first three months, STF and fine arts teachers of Nha My Drawing Class – the first class of the program – will select 50 paintings (of the total of over 350 paintings) of the 4-6 and 7-10 age groups in accordance with basic criteria: idea, arrangement and aptitude for painting.
Young painters will express their “dream color” through their paintings drawn in line with such topics as learning, playing, entertaining, friends, school and family.
Accordingly, to encourage the aptitude and passion for painting in children and to create favorable conditions for those in need, QTSC will sponsor the cost of materials for young painters whose paintings are selected.
Commenting on the program, Ho Thi Hoang My, a fine arts teacher, said: “It is a small but humane program. The program helps bolster the esthetic affection in children and the hope to find future artistic talents. Especially, drawing will bring joy to them.”
Message of compassion
STF hopes the “Dream Color” program will convey the message of compassion and anticipation for thriving in life.
Lam Nguyen Hai Long, director of QTSC, said: “Compassion should be expanded as it is the foundation for sustainable social development and prosperity. This is also a common goal that we join hands with STF to encourage compassion in the community. Through compassion, we hope to voluntarily bring harmony to society.”
Over the past two decades, STF, philanthropists and businesses, of which QTSC has always been a pioneer, have always hoped to fulfill their social activities through calling for the “Compassion Commitment” as part of the effort to develop human resources. As a result, commission and benevolence will be fostered to contribute to enabling the future young generation to have chances to sharpen their creativity.
