tArt

We are a group of art enthusiasts who get together to paint, sketch and draw! All students are welcome, and we hope to inspire one another with new visions and perspectives. We have a session every Thursday night at the Blank Canvas to do acrylic painting (Art Jam), and we also have special Wednesday sessions for one-off introductory sessions to various mediums and forms of art. Our foremost concern is making sure that inexperienced artists are not daunted by fine arts and we also hope to promote art interest and knowledge such that it is more prevalent within our communities.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
