2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
Thanks to Mr. Lin’s close friends, Chun-Hsiung Cheng and Mr. Lin’s only apprentice, Wei-Chen Huang, both of them set up appointments and provided much information for us. They also received our interview. When we went to Mr. Lin’s studio, we quickly to collect as much as information we needed. Since we already did some homework before, five of us were busy interviewing and taking photos.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
Mr. Lin has so much great paintings, but few of us knew he was born in Tainan. By the way, he is our neighbor. Many of his works were awarded the prize in several countries. We would like to introduce such a successful and outstanding artist to the people in Taiwan via the conveniences of Internet. Our teachers helped us a lot. When other students took a nap at noon, we went to the computer room to search for the information. When we had a break between classes, we talked about how to make the project better. We were happy to present Mr.Lin’s works to the others.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
First, we thank Miss Lin for giving us telephone number of Mr. Chih-Hsin Lin so that we could get in touch with this artist. He was generous enough to show us his precious painting at home and even lent us some of them for the project. Moreover, he gave us a provoking lesson on painting. On the other hand, other students and their parents did us a great favor. The parents association provided 10,000 NT dollars for this project; some parents drove with us to Chih-Hsin Lin’s house for the interview and went to Chih-Hsin Lin’s working to practice painting.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Have you ever seen a person who is already 70 years old but still has the spirit of a young man? Yes, He is Mr. Chih-Hsin Lin. He is always in a hurry. He hurries to eat, hurries to drive a car, and hurries to walk. We teenagers were surprised at his special lifestyle. His interests support him to keep painting. He provided our society many culture resources, but he asked nothing. You think he is quick to do anything, whereas he sees what we can’t see. We suggest that you can come and see him.
