What We Do

School Programme

The Art Outreach School Programme seeks to bring art education to primary and secondary schools in Singapore and thereby to:

  • Promote aesthetics

  • Instil art appreciation

  • Promote art criticism

  • Foster an awareness in Asian and Western Art History

  • Raise awareness of art from a young age

  • Inspire art production

How it works

Art Outreach is not about creating art, it is about teaching a new language: a way to ‘read’ visual art and talk about it. Students are encouraged to develop their own opinions about the work and to think critically.

 

Our volunteers conduct in-classroom art appreciation sessions with students at one of Art Outreach’s participating primary or secondary schools. ‘Portfolios’ of artwork are presented to the students and discussed in an interactive, informal way, to stimulate the students’ interest in the topic, to inspire additional research, and even creative use of the topics.

Schools participate on a long term basis and we aim that through this process all students in a school will in time receive art appreciation education. The lessons aim to wrap around the school’s curriculum, thereby making lessons relevant to the student’s ongoing education.

In partnership with the National Arts Council’s Public Art Trust (PAT), the programme explores exciting outdoor sculptures and artworks created by local and internationally recognised artists.

 

LEARNING JOURNEY TOURS 

This guided tour takes Primary school students on a walking trail around the Singapore River, exposing them to public artworks highlighting the past, present and future of the nation. Students embark on a process of exploration through an activity pack with activities developed to deepen their engagement with the artworks.

Fee (after 50% Tote Board subsidy): $5 per student

ASSEMBLY TALKS

The Art Explorers Club Discovers Public Art in Singapore aims to educate students on prominent artworks by the Public Art Trust, which reflect notions of identity, heritage and nation-building. Students will actively engage with the stories behind the people, places and events that inspired these artworks through dramatization, videos, games and discussions facilitated by Art Outreach trainers.

 

Fee (after 50% Tote Board subsidy): $400 per talk

Art in Transit Tours

The Art in Transit programme represents a journey in time as well as an effort to curate the collective consciousness of the neighbourhoods along the North-East Line (NEL)and Circle Line (CCL).

The site-specific artworks reflect the cultural and historical heritage of the area and its community. This is a unique and dynamic setting as compared with that of a museum or art gallery.

The artworks are a novel attraction that evoke the past character of each neighbourhood, and provides a means to better understand the many changes which Singapore has experienced over the past three decades and continues to experience.

These two-hour walking tours serve the dual purpose of exposing participants to the NEL and CCL art installations while providing insight into the history of the community in which the stations are located.

 

For more information about Art in Transit tours, please contact us.

Marina Bay Sands Art Path

The Marina Bay Sands collection is one of the first and most significant collections of site-specific public art in Singapore. Comprising monumental artworks that were conceived by artists collaborating with an architect to create integrated works of art, collectively they form an Art Path, enriching the experience of a public space.

The seven art installations are by five renowned artists: Antony Gormley, Chongbin Zheng, Ned Kahn, Sol LeWitt and James Carpenter, are all handpicked by Marina Bay Sands’ architect, Moshe Safdie. These large-scale artworks collectively form an Art Path, which blurs the boundaries between art, science, architecture, and nature on a dramatic scale.
