Running out ideas to celebrate those special occasions?

Let’s face it. No one is going anywhere during the year-end holidays and we are all stuck here in Singapore. Despite the lack of mobility, the party must go on! We are all bored of doing the same old things. Grabbing a bite in your favourite restaurant then going to the cinema to catch a movie. Like every average date night. Now, you have a hen’s night/anniversary/birthday party/christmas party or even a gathering of old friends but have absolutely no idea what to do? Let Visual Arts Centre jazz up your next party! grup art jamming

This tradition values both classical principles and innovation, encouraging artists to push boundaries while maintaining a deep respect for tradition. Through rigorous training and critique, artists within this tradition cultivate a strong foundation for creative exploration and artistic excellence.
