A celebration of SG50 amongst friends in support of World Vision communities
It all started with an ex-Sunday School student, Ms Elsie Tan and current Girls Brigade Captain of 71st Coy, Gan Eng Seng School wanting to help her girls learnt more about the world communities to earn the world badge.
I was keen on working with the GB girls as I wanted to involve the youths ever since I started my child sponsorship journey with World Vision in 2009.
One event quickly lead to another and I was able to book the same venue as my solo ink exhibition last year at The Gallery@The Arts House.
Mrs Choo Cheh Hoon, a board member of World Vision Singapore, founder of Dialogue in the Dark had challenged me sometime last year to teach her visually impaired (VIs) from Dialogue in Dark to paint.
Very soon, a class was setup for these VIs and I started teaching Chinese ink painting to the VIs as well as the staff and interns with Dialogue in the Dark.
It has been a most humbling journey as I tweak and plan each lesson so that I can help them learn basic strokes and do a simple composition.
This celebration of SG50 is meaningful to me as it is about ART and DIVERSITY.
It is not about me, or gallery@OURF, but more that that, it is doing meaningful art together to build a better world.
To God be the glory!
