Art Think Contemporary Program 2017 

Our school adopted Think! Contemporary Programme in 2014 (an interdisciplinary museum-based programme that integrates English, Art, Social Studies, and Character and Citizenship Education. Through museum visit, students are able to do an interdisciplinary art project; integrating Science into Art and vice versa. Pupils are able to learn Art and Science through museum visit. 

Our Journey 

We are inspired by 3 artists’ art work hence this year, we submitted 3 art works for the art exhibition at SAM.

   Mum! Where’s My Tail

    -Our artwork is a fun and interactive artwork that draws inspiration from Hiromi Tango's        Lizard Tail from SAM's exhibition Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth. 

    -Lizards possess the natural ability to lose their tails when threatened by predators and            regrow them later. Lizards feature prominently in Australian Aboriginal Art and culture. 

    -Inspired by our Art exchange program with St. Patrick's Primary School in Sutherland,          Sydney, each lizard carries a unique dot pattern, carefully painted by hand. 

    -This artwork playfully invites viewers to find the lizard's tails- can you spot which tall            belongs to which lizard?

Mum! Where’s My Tail



In response to Calvin Pang's art work we created our own art work entitled Dotty Spotty – Can You Spot the Mushrooms?

    Dotty Spotty – Can You Spot the Mushrooms?

   -Drawing inspiration from Calvin Pang's Where Am I?  In in SAM's exhibition Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth, our artwork invites viewers to take a closer look at one of nature;   most unassuming and adaptable organism- the mushroom. 

   -Set in a cluster, the mushrooms are individually crafted from clay and hand-painted with   colourful dots. 

   -The dot patterns on the mushroom caps were inspired from Australian Aboriginal Art and   is a remembrance of our friendly ties to Australia, established during an Art exchange     program with St. Patrick's Primary School in Sutherland, Sydney. 


Dotty Spotty – Can You Spot the Mushrooms?


Nandita Mukand’s The Origin: The Tree and Me and The Unborn from SAM’s exhibition Imaginarium: To the Ends of the Earth gave us the idea to create this installation piece. 
-Colourful man-made seeds and pods, crafted from carefully sourced recycled materials are carried away and scattered by the wind in this installation. 
-We are reminded of the circle of life and the miraculous potential of new life that the  seeds carry. 
 -The Think Contemporary Programme was a success for our P4 pupils as they learnt Art and Science beyond the classroom setting. P4 ambassadors were confident advocates of the arts when they shared their art work to the public. Well done IJ girls!
