The Singapore Teachers’ Art Society is 21 years old. We are of age! Though we have come a long way from then, we still have to persist in our various programmes to keep our society actively alive.
We search around, organize painting trips, near and far, to acquire fresh ideas and inspirations. We learn, discuss, share knowledge and experiences, explore and work them out at our art camp and painting sessions. Mingling with artists during visits to exhibitions and at our art camp gives us the opportunities to know the different personalities who see things so different from everyone. The interaction among our members during our meetings deepens our friendship and thus art making together is always relaxing and enjoyable. What a way to widen our horizon and keep abreast with the ever moving art scene.
The outcome of all our activities is the annual art Exhibition. It is our yearly major affair. It helps us attain our unchanging objective of promoting art among our teachers, students and public. The exhibition is where our teacher members can present their thoughts, creativity and talent to the public through their recent artwork. We hope the innate passion for art in our teachers and students will be ignited by the works on display. It is our desire to see more teachers make time to answer the urge to paint and soon join us in our exhibitions. The best way to appreciate art is to be immersed in the art scene.
We welcome all suggestions on activities that members would like the society to organize for them be it personal upgrading or work related. Let’s paint together, learn together and we will be better.
Here, we wish to thank our Guest –of – Honour and advisor, Dr Ho Kah Leong for his unfailing support. We are immensely grateful to Ngee Ann Cultural Centre for sponsoring the venue for our exhibitions these several years and we are deeply thankful to Lee Foundation, The Singapore Arts Federation, China Express Travel (S) and Universal Travel Corporation for their generous grants. Without their kind support, this exhibition would not be possible.
