On CNY Sunday I took a morning stroll at HortPark. The weather was cool and the colours were stunningly pretty, echoing the brilliant warmth of the sun rays, and lots of butterflies were happily scurrying from flower to flower. I share that inspiration with you2016-02-15 07.40.53

Our next outdoor art session will be on this coming Sunday, 31Jan 2016 fro 0830 to 11am.
I plan to have a short briefing in the ApiApi Lab, at the New Visitor Centre, and then take a walk to the Musang Hut along the new Kranji Trail for our sketching around there. If you miss us at the ApiApi LAb please walk to the Musang Hut, about 15 mins away. Bring any material you like. Posted here is a water colour sketch I did a while ago for your reference.

National Parks has published an events guide for its activities, and it features  the three art activities that I conduct in HortPark, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Botanic Gardens.

Its a great feeling of satisfaction and joy to realise this vision of community sharing of my passion in nature art, after 13 years of volunteering at National Parks.
