Weekends at The Artground – 14th and 15th September 2019

It’s the last weekend of Happy Homebodies!

From 23th May till 15th September 2019, we present Happy Homebodies –  Happy Homebodies features creativity in the simplicity of everyday life. Make new discoveries about common objects at home which are beautifully transformed into an uncommon experience. The magic of this exploration is that it shows children new ways of looking at ordinary objects around us. From a simple dot to the intricate lines that characterise the different parts and objects in a house, journey through the little spaces which open up new possibilities for imagination and innovation! Entry into The Artground itself is free and donations are encouraged.

Drop-in Programmes
Every weekend, The Artground organises a variety of age-specific drop-in programmes that participants will get to enjoy on a first come, first served basis, inside our Whitebox. Each programme will be charged at $10 per parent-child pair, which you can pay in the queue just before the programme starts. There is no registration for these activities as they are first come, first served (unless stated otherwise). An announcement will be made 5 mins before each programme and the first XX number of children in the queue will get to enjoy the programme (XX refers to the age-specified & capacity of the programme, ie Yummy Microgreens is for the first 20 children above 4 years).

Please see schedule below for the programmes this weekend. There will be no need to pre-register on our website for entry into The Artground. Parents and carers will just need to register on our portable tablets on site.

In this workshop we will meet Sparky, dance with Sparky, make music and new friends! This is a work-in-development and is part of The Artground’s artist incubation programme – The GroundBreakers. In this programme, the artists will be testing out some ideas with the children and will be seeking feedback from the audience after the session, to help further improve it. This is a free programme with registration here.

Baby Beat by Kulcha Pop: A cozy performance of classical music favourites with classic and/or ethnic instruments for the youngest of audiences.

Terrific Tales by The Storytelling Centre Ltd – Magic Tales: The perfect introduction to the art of storytelling especially for little listeners. What would you do if you had a touch of magic? Would you fly to the moon or paint pictures that came alive or perhaps become invisible? Join our Young Storytellers and be regaled by tales of magic.

Cardboard City by Stan: An exploration for pre-walking babies to inhabit and extend their spatial awareness amongst the everyday materials in this City designed just for them.

The Dot by art@homesg: Mid September is international dot day! On this day we celebrate our abilities to create. We will read The Dot by Peter Reynolds and create our own artwork framed in swirly gold.
