Yellowren Productions invites you and your family to join us for an awesome day out at the beautiful Lower Seletar Reservoir Park.

Be inspired by our local young talents in our inter-school canvas art and dance performances. Discover beauty and hope through the canvas and art installations by our local artists. We'll see you at the park! Free Admission!

Festival Highlights:

Edible Art by Chef Tim Ong is a fun workshop for kids. Taking his first head chef position at the age of 23, Tim Ong continued his culinary journey through working with Michelin star chefs, and being a consultant to numerous restaurant openings throughout Southeast Asia. Tim is no stranger to cooking with kids, running one of the largest children's culinary programs in Asia. Tim will be teaching kids how to make edible art with frosting and other decoration edibles out of a simple vanilla cookie sheet!

With These Hands by Alvin Lee and Tommi Chan is an arts installation consisting of 111 hands made from recycled plastics. In 1907, plastic was invented to bring convenience into modern life. Yet our ignorance and neglect have embedded us in the struggle with pollution. "With These Hands" is symbolic of our fight to break free from the abuse of resources. Alvin Lee is one of the winners of Noise Singapore Award 2015, presented by National Arts Council Singapore.

Local Fingerprints by Kim Hartley features Kim's inspiration from patterns and textures hidden in objects that most people would view as worthless or insignificant. Her artwork is a celebration of the intricate designs found on a tiny shell, found locally at Palawan beach. Stepped on, but not unnoticed.

Arts for All offers a series of workshops for the entire family. The crafts are simple to do and you can have fun with cup weaving, felt art, pop art, print making and string art! Visit Arts for All to create and bring home your art piece!
