Playing With & For The Community

SCYA at the Singapore Arts Festival 2012

The Singapore Arts Festival (SAF) 2012 – Our Lost Poems is ending in 2 days!!

Since its opening, SCYA has been involved in helping out with the Kids Arts Village bringing smiles and cheer to children! Conceptualised by SCYA, the UV Light Painting is situated at the festival lawn for children ages 5 up. Children are enraptured with story-tellers (Kind Volunteers from ITE & Queenstown Secondary School) of stories from myths and legends from all around the world. The children will then draw their own monsters on transparencies/paper and print them onto the canvas wall in the ‘Monster Cave’ – a shipping container fashioned as a creative Art Space.

SCYA also facilitated UV Face Painting/Masks for children. Check out the delighted children experiencing face painting and mask making – some for the very first time!
