Works will be exhibited until 26th November.
Additionally, the group will also create murals at the following occasions:
At the French School of Singapore as part of the ‘one child, one artist’ competition: seven children will help to create a mural together with some of the French and Singaporean artists. This will be at the Open Day at the French School on Thursday, 17 November from 3pm to 7pm.
At the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort, the artists will be joined by students with mild intellectual disabilities from Delta Senior School coming together to create a wall mural, at the resort’s children’s club. This will take place on Sunday, 20 November from 10:30am to 1pm.
The companies MAQUET & IDS have commissioned the artists for a painting, which will be donated to a hospital in Singapore for children with illnesses.
