The Art Club provides opportunities for its members to express their ideas creatively and develop competency in the different art making processes and exploration of materials.
Over the years, members of the Art Club have participated in several Art competitions and had attained many awards. In 2015, the Art Club students, together with members of the Green Auditors Club, participated at the first nationwide Recycling Art Competition organised by Resorts World Sentosa and clinched the 2nd prize. Last year, the Art Club submitted 4 entries for the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Art Competition 2016 and we are very proud that all 4 entries were shortlisted and received the Certificate of Recognition. In addition, all 4 artworks were also showcased at the Arts House. In 2017, the Art Club students submitted entries for the Young Illustrator Awards Season 5 organised by the East Zone Centre of Excellence for Creative Arts (EZCOECA). Four of our members managed to clinch the Certificate of Recognition and their artworks were among the pieces selected to be showcased at the public exhibition at Geylang East Library in December.
Recycling Art Competition
A group of Art Club students as well as members of the Green Auditors Club clinched the 2nd prize for the first nationwide Recycling Art Competition organised by Resorts World Sentosa in November 2015.
Students were invited to form teams of up to eight members and were required to submit their ideas in creating two-metre tall marine sculptures using recyclable materials based on the theme “Joining Hands to do our Part in Marine Conservation”.
Since the beginning of August, the Art Clubbers and members from the Green Auditors collaborated by working together in planning out their ideas for the proposals. They eventually created the sculpture when one of the teams’ proposals was shortlisted. The Green Auditors helped garner the necessary materials while the Art Clubbers helped to conceptualise the artistic qualities of the sculpture. Using recyclable materials they had gathered, they made sculptures of all kinds of marine creatures - from corals to penguins and turtles.
It was certainly one of our finest achievements when one of the seven sculpture proposals submitted was selected for the final rounds (one of the top ten entries selected out of all the schools participating nationwide) and subsequently won the 2nd prize in the secondary school category. The team brought back a trophy and several other attractive prizes such as $1,500 cash, Dolphin Adventure for all members, S.E.A. Aquarium tickets for all members in the CCA group as well as $80 worth of Malaysian Food Street vouchers for the team.
