The Sculpture Walks
 

Let your students be art critics for the day! On a Sculpture Walk, students are given the platform for self-expression as they evaluate and interpret various abstract and stylized works of public art. At the same time, they will learn about five historic and commercially vibrant districts of Singapore as they spend a day out in the sun, exploring public sculptures.

Combining art appreciation with National Education, the Sculpture Walks focus on:

  • Critical and analytical skills
  • Art movements and styles
  • Vocabulary and verbal expression
  • Evaluation and interpretation
  • Appreciating creativity and sculpting techniques
  • Appreciating Singapore's heritage and history

Recommended for Primary 1- 6

With art, nature and history, the Sculpture Walks are the perfect setting to expose young students to the finer aspects of life.

The SHC Sculpture Walks are fully endorsed by the National Arts Council (NAC). For more information, please visit the NAC website for the Sculpture Walks. Please note that all Sculpture Walk programmes are eligible for the 50% Tote Board Arts Grant subsidy.
