Peranakan art workshops for Schools

Creativity meets culture in a workshop designed for junior printers!

Upper primary and high school students enjoy a unique printing experience to help build confidence and encourage individuality. Students learn about Peranakan culture while designing and creating a Singapore inspired artwork. 

A collection of pre-carved rubber blocks inspired by Peranakan tiles is available for students to use alongside a colourful range of inks. Upper primary school are shown how to plan out their designs based on patterns and colours. Students above 14 years may try carving their own block to create unique rubber stamps for printing. 

A Powerpoint presentation on Peranakan culture can also be arranged. Workshops are conducted on school grounds in a space suitable for art workshops. 

Recent clients include Dulwich College Singapore, EtonHouse International School Thomson, Ai Tong Primary School, Waseda Shibuya Senior High School in Singapore and My First Skool. 

I was interested in Jennifer’s connections to Peranakan culture and the Peranakan influence in her artwork. The practical element of her workshop was appealing for our students. The workshop was very well resourced and I like the way that all materials were organised and laid out prior to the workshop. Jennifer had a calm and clear manner with the students who took part in the workshop. I would recommend the workshops for a range of ages, with the element of block carving for slightly older children. The pace and range of activities kept the students engaged.

Jennifer creates a fun and comfortable learning environment for the students. She interacts with them and patiently guides them through the printing process. The students thoroughly enjoyed the session and have gained a better understanding of the Peranakan culture through her unique style of motif printing.
