Art Clinic V (in collaboration with SOAD Foundation Programme)

19 and 23 February 2018, 1 and 2 March 2018.
The Ngee Ann Kongsi Galleries 1 & 2

In collaboration with the SOAD (School of Art and Design) Foundation Programme, around 187 Year 1 students from six General Studies II classes were given a structured tour of the exhibition 'A Study in Southeast Asian Artworks' by Dr Bridget Tracy Tan, Director of the Institute of Southeast Asian Arts and Art Galleries at NAFA.

Students were introduced to basic techniques used in exhibitions and content specific to the Southeast Asian artists and works on display. Guided questions by ISEAA were provided for students to aid them in  approaching and analysing the exhibited artworks.

The outcome of the tour will see students independently researching on the artists and artworks in the exhibition to each produce an art journal as part of their module assessment. Lecturers-in-charge also attended the tours and acted as ambassador tutors for the other classes, which saw 223 students in attendance.
