The Vietnam Fine Art Museum (VFAM) and Belgium’s Royal Museum of Mariemont have collaborated to expedite programmes to develop art museum education at the VFAM under the cooperation framework 2013-2015.

VFAM Director Phan Van Tien made the statement at meeting to review the project’s outcomes held in Hanoi on August 6.

Over the past three years, experts from Belgium have shared experience with Vietnamese museum officials in tapping the value of exhibited artwork at the museum while building suitable programmes for visitors.

Some 11 programmes on studying Vietnamese culture through exhibits were successfully organised for primary students and families.

The programmes – which are based on history, nature and society – will stimulate children’s thought and artistic innovation while encouraging them to enrich their knowledge and respect national heritage values.

Children also have a chance to develop their artistry and teamwork skills through the programmes.-VNA
