Art exhibition

Yiu Yiu has been attending art classes at Jane Yap Atelier at Citta Mall since two years ago.  We enrolled her here after stumbling upon their art exhibition two years ago and was suitably impressed with their approach to teaching art to children – allowing them to express their feelings while having fun at the same time.  At Jane Yap Atelier, the sky can be pink if the child imagines it to be pink.

Two years on, from Aug 23 – 30, Jane Yap Atelier will again hold its biennial students art exhibition.  Titled “The Tree of Life”, the exhibition exposes the children to the preparations and details required in organizing an art exhibition.

Each student had to paint three items for the exhibition: a tree painting and two canvas bags.  One canvas bag is in a monochrome and the other with an animal theme.  The bags with the animal painting were up for sale at RM 100 each, and all proceeds will be channeled to the Sin Chew Foundation.
