Want to learn more about the artworks placed around the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre? Apart from Sculpture Walk @ SCCC, there are paintings in the Centre for you to discover. Download an activity booklet of your choice and be inspired by the cultural elements at play, as seen through the eyes of local artists. These booklets were conceptualised and designed by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Year 2 Art Teaching students from August to November 2019. Written especially for 13 to 14 years old, they serve as a self-guiding tool for visitors to better appreciate the artworks in the Centre.

In our SINGAPO人 exhibition, we explore our distinctive Chinese Singaporean culture through food, language and customs.  To equip preschool educators with the skills to teach about Chinese Singaporean themes, we have collaborated with Ngee Ann Polytechnic Chinese Media & Communication to develop age-appropriate resources such as The Learning Kid! The Learning Kid was developed by Year 3 Chinese Media & Communication students, Ler Si Xian, Lau Mei Yue, Wei Xinyu, Quek Xin Hui Amelia and Adrian Tay Qi Yuan, and is a kit with sensory materials such as handmade puppets, story-telling cards and yusheng “ingredients”. First piloted with seven preschool centres over multiple sessions from May to June 2019, this kit is a final creation after many prototypes.  Preschool educators may use The Learning Kid prior to or after your visit to the SINGAPO人 exhibition.  Email [email protected] to request for use of this kit.  Please note that The Learning Kid can only be used in the Centre.  Download the Teacher’s Manual which consists of Lesson Plans and resources to be used together with The Learning Kid.
