FALL 2019

October 19 – December 8, 2019
Wasteland/ Wanderland – Laura Peturson

Grades 4 – 8
Full day

Wasteland/Wanderland is an insightful visual invitation. Laura Peturson provides an immersive experience, as we recognize and explore perspectives amidst our shifting ecosystem.  Navigating the gallery as explorers, we examine the beautiful complex setting of tangled landscape filled with genetically modified and invasive species.

Students develop their visual voice as they investigate their place in spaces, within the dynamic woodcut and linocut prints adhered to some walls. SG learners communicate their ideas through the lens of visual art, exploring paper and printmaking reflective of their dynamic experience in gallery and studio spaces.

WINTER 2020

February 1 – March 24, 2020

Microbial Feasts – Noni Kaur

Grades 4 – 8
Full day

Noni Kaur’s visual feast welcomes students into an installation of ritualistically dyed and assembled dried coconut. This exhibit explores culture and materials adapted or transformed in different spaces/ environments. Rangoli  is an Indian/Singaporean celebratory practice using coloured materials to decorate floors in domestic and public spaces. Made from pigments, flowers, rice, or sand, the artwork becomes a repository of the microbial realm, as it reflects life.

SG Learners explore perspectives and life aspirations as they identify their present and future place in the world and give visual expression to characteristics they wish to share as they create their personal Rangoli.
