Weekends at The Artground – 9th and 10th February

Weekends at The Artground – 9th and 10th February

From 24th January till 5th May 2019, we present Wild Rumpus –  an invitation into an imaginary world of creatures big, small, flurry or gentle, and to make friends whoever is hiding behind the corner. Embrace the world of tactile material and feel what it is like to hug, cuddle and squeeze into something out of the ordinary. Entry into The Artground itself is free and donations are encouraged.

TAG 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. You can purchase a single ticket, TAG cards for 5 or 10 + 1 sessions at $50 and $100 respectively at the reception. There is no registration for these activities as they are first come, first served. 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 Shapes Splash! is for the first 20 children from 4 years old).

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.

Baby Beat by Kulcha Pop:  A cozy performance of classical music favourites with classic and ethnic instruments for the youngest of audiences. This session features Rozie on Er Hu and Zhong Hu and Stan on keyboard.

Terrific Tales by The Storytelling Centre Ltd: The perfect introduction to the art of storytelling especially for little listeners. Let’s welcome the year of the Pig with some Oink & Squeak stories! This month we revisit classic fairytales about three little pigs who outwitted the big, bad wolf. Listen to the chain story rhyme of the old woman whose pig refused to jump over a stile. Meet the young piglet whose ambition was to become king and leader of all. And squeak along with the mouse family as they go looking for the ideal husband for the little mouse bride.

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

Dance Playground with Rolypoly Family: Dance Playground is where we explore dance and movement through unusual play structures and get (a little) messy. We play games that transform dance and movement into visual forms. What do wiggles, jiggles, and squiggles create?

Dragon Dance Puppets with art@homesg: Dragons are believed in the Chinese culture to bring good luck and prosperity. Let’s bring in the Lunar New Year by making your own dragon puppet!
