1st April – Happy April Fool’s Day!
ArtStories kickstarted the new month with a tote bag painting activity with residents from Florida Condo, Hougang. Gerald Tay and I helped over 50 participants to create their own DIY tote bag designs using acrylic paints and a plain cotton tote bag.
It is very encouraging to have good responses to art activities in Singapore where new families and parents are supportive and positive towards the learning and making of art. It is equally important that as Singaporean Artists and ArtStories continue to reach out to citizens and families to increase appreciation and interest in Art to dismiss the stigmas of Art as a poor and useless skill/tool to have.
Below are pictures of the activity.
