The Finding Wonders exhibition marks the 10th anniversary of Singapore Art Museum (SAM)’s signature museum-based school programme, Think! Contemporary.
Venue: National Library Building, Levels 7 and 8 and Online
Dates: 4 Nov - 31 Mar 2023
Finding Wonders: Celebrating 10 Years of Think! Contemporary Student Artworks features more than 30 artworks by 2,078 primary school students. It spans across physical and virtual realms for the first time, with an onsite presentation at the National Library Building and an online presentation on SAM’s website.
Committed to nurturing an appreciation for art at a young age, Think! Contemporary integrates school curriculum with museum visits, using artworks from SAM’s exhibitions as primary resources for classroom teaching and the learning of subjects such as English, Art, Science and Social Studies.
For the 10th edition, students created their artworks in response to works by local artists such as Jing Quek’s Singapore Idols, Dawn Ng’s Mamashop, Nguan’s Untitled photographs and more, drawing from daily inspirations found in the physical and virtual world, in dreams, in people, and even within themselves.
The primary school programme features a lesson package conceptualised from artworks in SAM’s Learning Gallery, created in collaboration with partnering teachers. Aimed at using art as a learning tool, the programme uses a multi-disciplinary approach to nurture the students’ critical thinking skills.
