Come down to Clarke Quay this weekend for what promises to be a really fun free arts event. Organised by Singapore Arts Street , this annual event lets you get up close and personal with different forms of art. Last year, more than 60 artists from different backgrounds participated, while over 18,000 people enjoyed the event.
This year there will be plenty for kids to do. Held at the fountain in front of the Clinic Nightclub, there will be an art wall with over 100 paintings and drawings to view, and a bazaar full of original arts and crafts goodies like handmade jewelry, knitted crafts, ceramics, toys and stationary.
There will also be demonstrations and free hands-on workshops. Children can try their hand at making their own collapsible book, photo album and frame, painting a tee shirt, learn how to decorate glass or porcelain, or have a pompom party.
Between 11.30am and 1.30pm the streets of Clark Quay will be lined with huge canvases for artists to paint and showcase their work, as well as for the public to try their hands at street painting.
Between 2pm and 4pm a graffiti wall will be created, where artists and the public can have a go at expressing themselves using spray paint.
Then from 4pm til 6pm there will be acrobatic acts, surreal statue acts, percussionists as well as dancing and singing by Kids Performing. Enjoy performances by budding local bands like Kae & Ayu, a two-girl band, and Rush, a NAFA student who discovered her true calling in belting pop tunes and other performance groups.
With such an array of activities, performances and showcases, you are bound to find something for yourself!
