Reception: Thursday 5 July 2012, 7.30pm
Faces, Hands, Feet & Little Things features a collection of paintings, drawings and small-scale installations based on the artist’s acute observations of the very basic things in everyday life – the faces that she sees, the hands that she touches, the feet that she passes by and the little things in general, on the streets, that the public sometimes overlooks.

This drawing workshop introduces playful and fun elements for children while learning how to draw and create art. The learning outcome for the participating children is to nurture their thought process creatively about composition and use of different materials in creating a piece of drawing. It teaches children how to “see” in a new way and offers the basic understanding of how to draw and paint.
