Explore Singapore 2011 | Batik Painting for the Family


Walking into the NUS Museum last Saturday, visitors were greeted with the scent of melting wax as we launched the first day of our weekend extravaganza of workshops for National Heritage Board's Explore Singapore 2011 with the Batik Painting for the Family workshop. This workshop was organised with the intention of teaching more people about the traditional art of batik painting and to encourage family bonding by asking parent & child to team up to create a piece of batik. Through meticulous instruction from the batik instructors from Kamal's Artshop, parent & child waxed and coloured a white piece of cloth to create their very own batik art. Big thank you to everyone who attended, we hope you enjoyed creating your batik piece as much as we enjoyed having you here!

  1. I went to a contemporary art fair in Shanghai recently, which was a real eye-opener. Chinese contemporary art
    has come leaps and bounds from the watery Zen landscapes to huge canvases of strange-looking beings. The
    prices being asked and paid were huge too.
    Oriental, if not Chinese, my print of Jean-Léon Gérôme's painting, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWS6R,
    bought some time ago from wahooart.com, is as lovely as ever.

  2. I love batik too.
    now I'll develop the Batik Bekasi motif to add the motif Batik Indonesia collection.
    greet from Batik Bekasi
