Since 2018 – Art For Good uses art to reach out to children from low-income families in one room rented flats in Toa Payoh (Singapore). Hence the name Art Outreach. We provide weekly art enrichment classes and art excursions to the children. These children come from families that would not be able to afford such enrichment classes and outings. We hope to use art to improve the quality of life of the less fortunate.
We would like this project to bring awareness to the poverty situation in Singapore. The program is fully supported and funded by Art for Good and by the volunteers who have come to support this program.
We started the program by making art on picnic mats. We interacted with the children under their block and engaged them to make art together with us. We built friendships by making art together. Toa Payoh Central Constituency Office gave us a classroom to work in until December 2018. We are currently conducting the classes for the children at Toa Payoh CC Blk 93, Room 05-03, every Wednesday from 6:30-8:30pm. If you would like to volunteer to be part of this program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to continue this Art Outreach program and look for other creative ways to continue to engage these children who thrive in this environment!
