Kids Arts Village

Last Friday afternoon, Mummy whisked me off from school to the Kids Arts Village.

and we arrived just in time for the Children's Showtime -

WANDERLAND by the Little Arts Academy
Those korkors + jiejies in black are supposed to be furniture - tables and chairs.
Brilliant, we thought.

Photobucket
the young performers were very good and professional!
One of the dancers dropped a flower and she just continued dancing without it and not looking anxious at all.

after the showtime, we're led to the Children’s Art Gallery

where I was given a worksheet which provided my mummy points of discussion on the art pieces

me looking at the exhibits.

and we've got to sketch our favourite piece of artwork on the worksheet.
My favourite is this Dinosaurs showcase.

This is Mummy's favourite.
Go to the Kids Art Village to see for yourself what it is.
but Mummy think it may not be there anymore this week cos there is a change of theme at the kids arts village every week.

Me doodling with chalk at the Topsy-turvy Rabbit Hole.

Go see for yourself what're inside the holes.

I didn't get to do it the last time we were at the Festival Village @ Esplanade Park.

Finally, Crafts Alive! is ready for us to enter.

ta-dah!

I had fun at the Kids Arts Village though Mummy thought it was not as fantastic as she had expected.
Oh well, what kids think in this village is more important. ha.

Suitable for kids 3 and up we'd say.
