PAssionArts - Immerse yourself in the local Art scene!

PAssionArts Month 2013 is all about bringing together people, creating the spark to ignite their passions for the Arts. May it be musical performances, Paper Cutting, Finger Painting, a series of bear-making workshops, Ceramic Arts and Balloon Sculpting.

Immerse yourself in the local Art scene and take a well deserved break!

I think art is a very beautiful and relaxing thing. Art is actually a passion which brings different group of people together. However, there's one special thing about them, which is that they share the same passion. The best thing about art is that it involves no age limit. Young and old can get together so long as they share the same passion. Just like Phantom of The Opera, both youngsters and elderly can appreciate it. They are not really targeted to any age.

“Everyone can make a difference (M.A.D), and be an artist, or musician in their own way, as long as they have a PAssion for the arts”.

Life is a journey, take a break and let Arts take the centre stage this 27th April at 3 different location!
o Kampong Glam Arts Village @ Bras Bersah Complex
o Harmony thru Arts @ Novena Square, Velocity Mall
o Dream – Kolam Ayer @ St Joseph’s Institution Junior
