Bringing the Galaxy Home
The sky is the limit as SITizens spend an evening letting their inner artist soar
On 24 and 25 May 2021, SITizens unleashed their inner artist, expressing themselves on the canvas at the Galaxy Mountain Art Jamming Workshop led by Ms Joie Tan from Artify Studio. They each received a set of acrylic paints, paintbrushes, a canvas, a toothbrush and a guided image of the Galaxy Mountain.
They began by priming their canvas black. Ms Tan then demonstrated the wet and dry brush techniques to blend different shades of blue to create layers, imitating the night sky. The finishing touch was to create the textures of snow on the mountains, and this was achieved with white paint, using the dry brush technique.
Food and Human Nutrition graduate Mr Fong Ming Hong said, “Art jamming together with the alumni virtually does bring out another kind of experience. Also, I have realised that art jamming can be really therapeutic. It is a good way of spending time with your inner self as well as taping into one’s creativity.”
