From now to 28 October, 30 hand-painted lanterns will light up for display at UOB Art Gallery, UOB Plaza 1 as part of the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations. The showcase will be exhibited alongside artworks from the 2015 UOB Painting of the year winner and professional artist, Mr Aaron Gan. The lanterns are painted by students from the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) Chaoyang School.
The lanterns are painted with acrylic paint by 30 young artists and volunteers from UOB under the tutorship of Mr Soh Chee Hui, who was the UOB Painting of the year winner in 1992.
Mr Soh says that he hopes that this activity will help to develop the creative abilities of the children and inspire them to pursue their artistic passions.
The lantern-painting session was held as part of UOB’s annual Mid-Autumn Festival workshop.
