MINDFULNESS OF BEING – IDENTITY
This year, we at Colour My World are heightening our awareness of existence, our role on this planet, our relationships with others and the environment. For our Nov-Dec term, we invite you to contemplate the following. What is ‘Identity’? What are the components that make up your ‘identity’, where did they originate and when did you integrate them into yourself?

Explorer’s Art (3 – 5 yrs)
World of Bugs!
This winter, our Art Explorers shall step into the fantasy of their own imaginations. They will take inspiration from both known fantastical creatures as well as real-world insects to create their own whimsical take on the world we live in. Create a vibrant and neon coloured open terrarium filled with fantastical bug sculptures. Then illustrate and paint an underground bug colony fused with a combination of earth tones and sprightly colours.
Core Art (5 – 10 yrs)
Our Core Artists will delve into exploring the subject of ‘IDENTITY’ through self-reflection, brainstorming, and discussions while honing their design and illustration skills. The three projects with unique aesthetics will be united through a common colour scheme: a coat of arms inspired family crest, a family mascot sculpture, and a self-portrait inspired by the style of contemporary artist Julian Opie. Throughout the projects, the Core Artists will explore different influences on their self-identity, from family values, cultural influences, to personal interests.
Ready-Set-Draw (8 yrs+)
I Had A Dream
Why do we dream and what do they mean? Many artists use their dreams as inspiration for creating compelling stories, such as illustrator Dan-ah Kim. She creates mixed-media drawings layered with tactile textures and mesmerizing colour palettes. This term we will indulge in dreaming by making the impractical possible… at least on paper. Elevate your drawing skills by adding surface textures (such as textile and paper) and different mediums to enhance your masterpiece.
