SINGAPORE ASSOCIATION OF THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED (SAVH)

The Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped’s mission is to help the visually handicapped help themselves by acquiring new skills and gaining self-reliance to cope with the integration into society. The Touch Art Programme was introduced to the visually impaired clients to equip them with skills to produce different handicraft items such as bookmarks, drink coasters, mousepads, greeting cards, canvas paintings and decorated glass plates, using the sense of touch. It provides the clients a platform to showcase their talent, opportunities to socialize with others and employment opportunities through making the handicraft items.

COLOURS OF MY COUNTRY

Katy’s artwork depicts Singapore with apartment buildings and trees, and the island is split into three colours which represent her feelings about Singapore, showcasing her love for Singapore in spite of these extraordinary times. Perhaps, the simple but powerful use of colours illustrates how the visually impaired think through more abstract but equally evocative means.

HARMONY

When asked about her thoughts about Singapore, the first adjective that came to Adeline’s mind was “harmonious”. Adeline’s depiction of four individuals represents the four races of Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasians. By pasting the four races side by side and holding hands, she portrays these four individuals together in solidarity, a clear reference to racial harmony.

MY HOME
