Thank you for joining us at the Istana Art Event!
Organised in conjunction with the Istana Open House, this year’s Istana Art Event took place on 2 August 2015 at the Istana’s Arts and Heritage Village. To celebrate the nation’s Golden Jubilee, the theme was Once Upon This Island.
Children aged 3–12 years old took part in the popular On-The-Spot Art Competition, sharing colourful stories of Singapore through their drawings.
Families came together to participate in a range of fun-filled activities put together by Singapore’s museums and heritage institutions. The Gallery’s booth allowed visitors to personalise their own hand fans featuring some of our key artworks, or take part in an interactive skit inspired by artist Chua Mia Tee’s iconic painting National Language Class, that brought art to life.
