MONGOLIA: AFFINITY 缘 ART EXHIBITION 14th Aug to 13th Oct 2017
from Women Of Vision
by Women of Vision
In 2016, a group of child sponsors and Women of Vision volunteers took a trip to World Vision Singapore’s area development programme in Uvurkhangai, Mongolia. Inspired by the beauty the country has to offer and touched by the needs of the community, a few of them decided to hold an art exhibition to share their stories. The MONGOLIA: AFFINITY 缘 Art Exhibition is an attempt to articulate their affinity with Mongolia and in partnership with Gallery@OURF, they hope to bring about greater awareness of the situation in Mongolia and help the vulnerable children and families living there.

Look forward to seeing you!
This is my fourth visit to the school and this time round, I decided that the students can try to paint using art paper instead of rice papers as it was difficult for them to process the rice papers the last time around.
There 3 sessions were done over 3 afternoons from 8th to 10th June 2017. We even managed to get the brother of one of the girls to join in as he was accompanying her for all three days!
As we were planning to use these paintings and turn them into cards, I got my students to “re-paint” some of them again. The new challenge this time was to paint a pair of mother-daughter horses (or rather father and son horses) as part of Mother’s Day celebrations. Of course, my mischievous students told me it is to celebrate Friendship day!
The last day saw them painting hard and furious as I have told the class that I would have a prize for the best painting. I planned to give my journal book of my latest paintings to the best of them. When I saw how each painted so diligently and with so much heart (心画）I decided that everyone stands a chance to win this prize. So it was a lucky draw for them and the prize eventually went to the new recruit, Kinza’s brother who was very kind and sweet to sit through the first day to wait for her to finish class.
Kudos to all of them for their diligence!

An interpretation of the great wall of China….in Chinese ink #class preparation
I wanted to paint a picture that says the gentleness of a Mother’s love and after looking at some pictures, I thought this picture of a horse and its foal shared my idea of how it should be like.
Though I have mistaken it to be on first week of May, well as they say, better late than never!
