Art Explorers discover Ota Fine Arts Singapore

Description

In our image-saturated world, it has become crucial for our children to be able to understand and critique the images around them. Join educator and author, Claudine Fernandez, in a workshop for families that aims to equip parents with visual literacy strategies to help children make meaning from images.

The workshop will take families to explore the work of renowned artist Yayoi Kusama at Ota Fine Arts Singapore through a series of Harvard Project Zero thinking routines. This is followed by a hands-on process of clay-making and creative writing. Families will draw on inspiration from artworks to create original pieces of writing!
