International Sick Leave Day 2017

Dear all,
C&G Artpartment will be

Closed on (Sat)May 13, 2017

in order to support "International Sick Leave Day". While Gum will be in West Kowloon, Clara will be in San Francisco for outdoor painting on 5.13 afternoon (3-6pm). You are sincerely invited to join us, whereever you are! Please roll down for more detail. And, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Best, C&G

Announced by C & G Artpartment in 2008, 13 May has become the "International Sick Leave Day". It is highly recommended to take a leave from work on that day and go outdoor sketching or painting. Hong Kong people usually "have the time to die but no time to get sick." When they know they are sick, they mostly are in a very bad condition already. ‚‚'Sketching' and 'painting' can help purify one's spirit, and help patients to recover psychologically. Besides, we also invite everyone to come fishing with us, alongside with sketching and painting at the West Kowloon Waterfront or San Francisco.

No matter where you are, please support the "International Sick Leave Day" and take a sick leave on the 13th May!

And if you are in Hong Kong on this day, you can join Gum at West Kowloon for outdoor sketching/painting and fishing:
Date: 13th May 2017 (Sat)
Time: 3:00 - 5:00pm
     West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade, Hong Kong OR
     San Francisco, USA
      1_Outdoor Sketching/Painting
      (Any medium is fine, but as convenient as possible)

*You can take some snacks and drinks with you, but have to keep the site clean.
*Children should be escorted by adults.
*Free of Charge



是日阿金會在5.13 (下午3:00-5:00)到西九海濱長廊寫生,而Clara 則會在三藩市寫生。現誠邀大家一起請病假休息,參加寫生或釣魚 (請參看以下的詳情)。 不便之處,敬請原諒!


於是,C & G藝術單位於2008年5月13日首先發起「國際請病假日」,呼籲市民支持「國際請病假日」,於每年5月13日請病假休息一 / 多天。以「繪畫」可以陶冶性情的功能,讓自己可以有機會進行心理、心智、性格、情緒治療,動手動腳出來戶外「寫生」繪畫,舒筋活絡。


日期: 2017年5月13日(星期六)
時間: 下午3:00 – 5:00
地點: 香港西九 海濱長廊 或 美國三藩市
