Holiday Program 2012

It’s that time of the year again!

School’s out and kids want to do things.

This year, all holiday activities take place at the new Observatoire at the Blue House in Bukit Timah.

You can sign up for Printmaking for one afternoon or morning (and come home with a set of Christmas cards) in December, or you can sign up for a week of Drawn to Nature camp (Observing nature and drawing inspiration from it) from 10th to 14th of December.

Either way, make sure you visit soon!

Then, let the participants choose 5 of these yummy unusual objects and challenge them to make a creature. The results were amazing! See some pictures below and in my Gallery.

If you’d like to try, either go and pick your own from the sidewalk, parks, gardens, or come and visit me at the museum again the 6th and 7th of June (2-5pm).

If you’d like to help (and have fun in the process), please pick a small bag of “tree stuff” as in the picture above and I’ll gladly come and pick it up anywhere in Singapore. Or you can bring it to me and I’ll treat you to a cup of tea/coffee/Milo and a quick workshop on how to make a mouse, an owl… or a strange creature from this wonderful material that grows on trees!
