16 May Exhibition: Paint With Me
Last year, Artemis Art hosted a group exhibition called Pieces of Joy, featuring the works of children and young adults with learning difficulties. The exhibition was done in collaboration with Tutti Art Club, operated by artist Tan See Ling.
Once again, we are collaborating with Tutti Art Club to present to you an exhibition entitled “Paint With Me” featuring three artists under See Ling’s tutelage and their mothers. The three artists are Fitri Raslan, Luqman Hakim, and Zahra Nakhjavani, each providing a number of art pieces that will be featured. Two of these artists, Fitri and Zahra, also participated in Pieces of Joy.
As Mother’s Day falls in the month of May, we thought it would be a good idea to not only feature the young artists’ works, but also the artworks of their mums. More than just being a form of therapy, art in this case also acts as an activity that strengthens the bond between mother and child.
The creative mothers featured are Revina Junus (mother to Fitri), Aida Lim (Luqman’s mom) and Leili Sedaghiani (mother to Zahra).
The exhibition officially opens on Sunday, May 19 at 3pm, and will be officiated by Dr. Irene Leow, Principal of Seri Mawar Childcare & Development Centre. Dr. Irene Leow is also a part-time lecturer and trainer in the field of early childhood care and education, and is a member of the Professional Certification Board of the Early Childhood Care and Education Council, a body tasked with developing Quality standards for preschools and child care centers.
In addition, a guest speaker has been invited to deliver a short talk about children with learning difficulties. Details will be updated here as they are provided to us.

The exhibition runs until May 31, 2013, so if you do not manage to make it to the official opening, there will be ample time for you to do so.
Art is an important form of expression. In addition, for those with learning difficulties, it becomes a form of therapy. With active involvement of their mothers, the creation of art takes on a new dimension – an additional channel to strengthen the natural bond between mother and child, a bond that lasts a lifetime.
