This summer, although you cannot go to any overseas summer school, with the reopening of schools and campuses in China, the most "beautiful" Summer Programme - Yew Wah Art, Fashion and Wellness Summer Programme - is ready for you to experience the top-art-school level learning atmosphere and have a wonderful summer with master instructors.
The 2019 Yew Wah Fashion Summer Camp was warmly welcomed among students. The Yew Wah Summer Programme this year will lead you to appreciate beauty, enjoy beauty and create beauty from multiple dimensions in the summer of 2020.
2020 Yew Wah Summer Programme！
One is a whole-day programme that covers foundation art, fashion design, and lifestyle & wellness.
The other is the half-day Art Portfolio Development Programme for students who are preparing their university admission portfolios.
"A rose is a rose is a rose" (by poet Gertrude Stein) is often interpreted as "things are what they are", a statement of the law of identity. The life cycle of the rose from growth to decay would inspire new design ideas and innovative vision of beauty. The magical power of rose-colour and rose-scent is a sustainable force. The rose has fascinated generations of poets, painters, designers and photographers.
Other than pleasing the eyes, the rose plant has natural benefits to our body as well. In our Rose & Skin session, students will learn to appreciate that under the guidance of professional instructors.

Lifestyle is a way of living. For an individual (or a group), it is an expression of your self-image. It communicates to others what matters to you, and it conveys your intent. We hope to inspire you to become a proactive explorer of life, and help you build the path to a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is intentional and lifestyle is a choice.
Acquiring taste is a journey and it starts this summer, from this most beautiful summer programme.
The three heavy-weight instructorsfrom Yew Wahhave been deeply engaged in art education and creative practice for many years. They have multiple identities. Each identity is a dazzling label, and each identity can bring students different inspirations:
