Young Artist Programme - YAP


Term 1 - September 2020, 

Theme: Reflection

In YAP Term 1, children will confront ideas about “Reflection”. Through introspection and artistic awareness, they will experiment with various mediums and practice essential artistic skills to produce new artwork every week.

Heavily project-based, this six-week programme will encourage students to express themselves through art, while reflecting inwardly as well as outwardly about civic and social issues.
