Education and Learning with Art for Good

6 July 2018 – Catholic High School Entrepreneurship Programme Learning Journey

Catholic High students visited our Art Outreach programme location and where our founder Amanda Chen shared about Art for Good as an arts social enterprise. The children asked meaningful questions about how the organisation gives back to the community through art. The children created messages of love which will be gifted to the children from our Art Outreach programme.

19 September 2018 – Riverside Secondary School Learning Journey

Riverside Secondary School students came for their learning journey at our Art Outreach location. Our founder Amanda Chen shared about Art for Good as an arts social enterprise. The children created messages of encouragement, which they could gift to someone they knew who might need some empowerment or encouragement. Two of the children left their cards behind for Art for Good, to encourage us to keep doing what we are doing and use art to do more good!

1-18 November 2018 – CIP Project with students from ITE

With special thanks to Nurin Najwa Binti Amran, Ang Zheng Quan Dion, Cheng Qi Ting Joanna, Lina Li Yuan, Nick Bryan Tan, Tan Xuan Xin Dulcie!

6 students from ITE volunteered with Art for Good to create their own art program with the underprivileged children and followed by fundraising by selling these keychains at our Christmas booth. They made plastic shrink keychains together with the children from the Art Outreach Program, where the drawing and colouring of the keychains was done in the classroom. The ITE students then brought them back to microwave and attached the keychain mechanisms. The children from the Art Outreach program got to keep two keychains while the rest were sold at the booth. Keychains are available on our online shop!

I had the opportunity to learn about managing a micro business, particularly a social enterprise that works closely with various partners, ranging from government to non-government organizations, educational institutions as well as corporate entities. Art for Good also focuses on employee development, as I was a beneficiary of the Professional Conversion Programme, a 9-month course which equipped me with digital marketing skills to boost the company’s marketing efforts. The most memorable experience through my time here was making a difference to youths at risk, through art and art therapy. Watching them grow and express themselves better through art made my job all the more meaningful.

Internship from: June – August 2019

This internship has provided me with many opportunities, where I have gained experience that helps me both professionally and personally. By helping out behind the scenes for events and handling the website requirements, gave me insight to how such organisations are being managed. One of my experiences was that I had first-hand contact with the beneficiaries like special needs children and underprivileged children. Previously, I have done volunteering work for underprivileged elderly, but helping the children gave me a different vibe as the children are active and constantly smiling. For these experiences, I am very grateful to have worked with Art for Good.
