Cosmetics have the potential to inspire wonder, not just on a human face, but also on a canvas.
Birthed from a collaboration between differently-abled students from Rainbow Centre's Artability Programme and Shiseido Asia Pacific, Beauty of Art exhibition features 38 artworks exploring themes of nature, botany, wildlife, fashion, beauty, and Singapore landmarks, all creatively made with cosmetics and paint.
This exhibition highlights the students' appreciation for the environment and understanding the importance of recycling and upcycling. Their experience in being part of this exhibition not only develops a stronger sense of self, it also teaches them to value their talents as a potential source of income when they graduate from Rainbow Centre.
All artworks on display are available for purchase, with proceeds going towards the young artists and Rainbow Centre's Artability Programme to continue nurturing these young talents.
The Artability programme is a vocational arts programme that develops students with potential in visual arts by exposing them to new art techniques, growing their personal styles and partnering with various stakeholders to showcase their works to the public. Most of the students have autism while some of them have physical disabilities. Their ages range from 14 years old to 18 years old.
Rainbow Centre, a charity organisation that operates 3 special education schools catering to students with special needs.
