28 Nov (Sat): Creating Nature Art on Ubin for kids

Join Cicada Tree Eco Place for this special kids' event. We go to Ubin to discover its natural treasures and feel its special atmosphere. Many artists come to stay on Ubin to get inspired and create their art, from painting and sculpture to music.
For our session, participants will be led on a guided walk into the rural countryside here, looking at the art of Nature, its colours, textures, sounds and meanings. Along the way, we will gather fallen leaves, fruits and twigs that catch our eye, and use them to make our artwork. The background for your art installation will be the natural environment around us. No paint, glue or paper needed! Artists will then share about their completed art, with additional comments from andrew who does nature art. And after taking a photo of your artwork, we will leave them where they are, to be recycled back into nature.

  • Please bring poncho, raincoat or umbrella, fully filled refillable water bottle, cap, herbal mosquito repellent (eg: Moz-Away “Natural” from Guardian Pharmacy), snacks.
  • Optional items to bring: camera, sunglasses.
  • Please wear full length long pants, tee-shirt, socks and fully covered shoes. Long-sleeved cotton shirt is recommended.
  • There are provision shops, restaurants, cafes and bike rentals on Ubin.
