Art for the Community
"To create a sustainable circular empowerment programme starting with the seniors in our neighbourhood."
Since July 2019, Artify Studio started Artribe in its space nestled in Textile Centre. Starting with the seniors from a Senior Activity Centre in our neighbourhood, we have built a small group of lovely and conscientious individuals who are passionate about learning.
We introduced them to acrylic painting initially and they have since picked up painting skills for watercolour and chalk pastel. With regular check-ins and sessions, especially during this ever-changing COVID-19 situation, our seniors have made rapid progress through lessons via video calls.
We plan to continue building their confidence and gradually ease them into guiding others to do art as well.
Artribe: Our Work So Far
May 2019 – Present
spent "recruiting" seniors, organising art sessions, planning, coordinating, packing, and teaching since its inception in 2019.
In 2020, during the Circuit Breaker period of COVID-19, we unlocked a new achievement! We pivoted to online classes and taught the seniors how to use video call for the online sessions.
In 2021, we've formed our third and fourth tribe!
packaged & sent to seniors.
watercolour, palette, canvas, paper, reference images, art tools (i.e. brushes, palette knives, pencils, erasers, tape)
conducted within Artify Studio for seniors to learn & meet regularly as a hobby group.
Since May 2020, all sessions have moved online due to COVID-19.
reached & impacted — made new friends and picked up new skills.

The 8-week watercolour programme for the fourth tribe ended in early 2022.
