If you see this booth in the coming week, please drop by, have a chat,
and write down some wishes for our gallery decor!
Dear student helpers, thank you for the hard work! We appreciate it!
Interested in sitting before a group of artists to have your portrait drawn?
Here's your chance!
As part of our 30th AEP Anniversary, we've organized THE BIG DRAW, a full day Portraits Day in the NY Art Gallery on 16 Aug, which is also the Homecoming Funfair day!
All proceeds will contribute towards the fund raising efforts.
For a sitting that will last 20 minutes at $15, you get to take home 2 of your favorite picks.
If you can't choose between 3, then donate another $5 to take home an additional portrait.
We are also throwing in a package - if you donate another $35, you get to take home all portraits drawn during the session! That's a steal!
Why don't you sign up now on our website, THE BIG DRAW, now! Limited seats available!
Drop by our booth during recess the whole of next week to help us with our gallery decor for Homecoming day and the 30th AEP Anniversary Decorations! It's easy - you just need to pen down your thoughts and unleash your creativity on the papers provided. We will string it up and put it all over the gallery and cannot do it without your help! Teachers, students, staff, alumni, families are welcome!
The SYF Committee has put submitted entries (exhibited/non-exhibited) into a postcard pack. It compiles all exhibited and non-exhibited artworks. Here are the scans of the submissions from Nanyang Girls High School.
Little Booklets will be featured on Gen NY Issue 2! (expect a scan of the magazine, coming soon)
We've just submitted a montage of all the covers of Little Booklets we've received so far for Issue 3.
We were at the Art Labs stalls again today. It was the last day of the SYF Celebrations and the entire place was bustling with activity, but today seemed like the activities were more catered to families. We had the Flower Power booth that had our student facilitators teach visitors how to make paper crepe flowers, and the Pop-Up Prints booth that allowed visitors get their hands on pulling their own silkscreen prints.
It was the first time our students got to mend a silkscreen printing booth right after learning the technical skillls of the craft. The students learnt how to engage the crowd and created their own system to printing, washing, drying, and ironing to make the prints pop up (emboss).
All in all we had a great time. Thank you SYF for selecting these proposals! Thank you all students for the hard work!
It was our first day setting up booths for the Art Labs on Day 2. Our 'Body Art' booths, both Paintdom and Henna Montana were very well received and popular - what's more it's free!

The Henna Montana (Henna painting) station was got visitors curious as our students propped up a screen made of cloth to separate the painters from the visitors. In this sense the painters are hidden from view (the students also think that this helps to hide the logistical mess at the stall. There are holes cut in the screen the will allow visitors' hands to be put through for henna designs to be applied. There's the surprise element as the visitors will not know who will apply henna on their hands!
It was so fun that our students wanted to do it again tomorrow! But tomorrow comes with another bunch of art lab booths to engage the public with art, and another two groups from NYGH teaching different techniques.
We hope to see you there!
