Assembly of Heroes: Masks and Hat Making Workshop

SCYA collaborated once again with UBS and students from various special needs schools in Singapore in the inaugural Special Olympics: Assembly of Heroes Art Programme at National University of Singapore on 2nd June.

SCYA contributed with a fun masks & hat making activity for over 500 participants for 4 hours. Jacquelyn and Rachel Chan facilitated the hat making workshop while KC Gan and Wan Xing assisted in the masks making workshop. We also received support from the volunteers from UBS to facilitate the activity by guiding the participants on colouring and pasting.

Both the activities encourages using easy to find items such as paper plates, crepe paper, elastic bands and stickers to decorate and personalize their hats!

Though it was a long and tiring day facilitating the workshop, it was a good end to our week as we spent time to see joy and glee on our participant’s faces as they used their imagination to create their own masks and hats!
