Arts Programme Update & ISTA opportunities in January 2019

VISUAL ARTS 

These last few weeks we have seen a wonderful celebration of visual arts. Last weekend Singapore hosted their affordable art fair which showcased a wide variety of media, styles and techniques. Nothing that caught my eye though, so my bank balance is still safe!

We also had the pleasure of participating in the annual IN Art Exhibition held at the Australian High Commission. 17 different international schools from Singapore and Malaysia come together each year to form a fantastic exhibition of senior students work across many medias and genres. The opening night was, as always a wonderful evening of celebration, our proud artist’s discussed their work openly with visitors complimented by musicians from many of the participating schools playing background music.

Here is just some of the fabulous artwork on display from our students. The exhibition runs from day through to 18th January 2019 10am-4pm Monday- Friday and it’s FREE!
