Affordable Art Fair is back, mama! Find out why it’s a super fun event for the whole family…
The Affordable Art Fair Singapore returns from 12-15 November, and we can’t wait to score ourselves a bargain or two. With all pieces – from more than 600 artists! – priced between $100 and $10,000, the Affordable Art Fair is all about making art accessible and engaging for everyone — even kids! Here’s what you can look forward to, mama … read on to find out how you can get in FREE with an exclusive downloadable voucher from Sassy Mama Singapore!
1. Families Get in FREE with the exclusive Sassy Mama Voucher
Tickets normally cost $15-$18 per adult, but Sassy Mama readers and their families can get in for FREE on Friday, 13 November from 12-4pm with our exclusive downloadable voucher. Just click the link below, download the voucher, and flash it at the ushers for instant access, mama! You can download it to your mobile phone or print it out, whatever works best!
2. Drop the kids off to get some Mama Me-time
If you can’t relax until your munchkins are happy and occupied, you’ll def want to check out the Children’s Art Studio. Open throughout the weekend, it’s offering a range of free, fun-filled workshops for children aged 4+ from Children’s Art studio Provider Little Artists Art Studio. An “exploratory art adventure” theme will combine hands-on fine arts workshops for children of varying ages, in varying mediums and styles, while kiddos can also take their own special youth tours around the fair. The aim is to make high art accessible and engaging to young minds brimming with unspent creativity and youthful inspiration!
Kiddos can also drop by the Australian International School’s space to participate in a collaborative wall art project and stand a chance to win one of 3 holiday camps provided by Camp Asia. Feel truly inspired at Level 3, Paddock 1 (Room D), mama!
3. Refuel with Fam-Friendly F&B
Need to recharge after getting your shop on, mama? Enjoy some artistic treats from the Affordable Art Fair’s official food and beverage partner, Bistro 1855. Fancy a cheese platter with a glass of wine, or a healthy cous cous salad and quiche? Then take a pit stop and feast your eyes on the 1855 experience, which also features a wide range of yummy bar bites that are sure to be kid pleasers.
Sassy Papas (or Mamas!) who aren’t feeling artsy will be happy to know that Peroni is proud to be the Official Beer Partner of the Affordable Art Fair’s Autumn Edition for the third year running, while parents in need of a pick-me-up will be delighted to hear the Affordable Art Fair will be serving gorgeous coffee from Common Man Coffee Roasters, purveyors of quite possibly the finest beans in Singapore!
4. Enjoy Family Bonding with Special Creative Workshops
We know everyone’s definition of art is different, but it’s also fascinating to realise that everyone can enjoy and relate to art, no matter their age! Affordable Art Fair believes everyone – whether a child artist, a collector, or an art expert – should be able to enjoy art. So visitors are encouraged to immerse themselves in innovative art activities designed for the whole family. This November there will be a range of workshops including coffee painting with creative partner Canvass, chocolate painting with rockstar chocolatier Janice Wong, and ceramic art workshops to benefit charity partner Woodbridge Hospital Charity Fund.
5. The FREE fair catalogue makes you an instant art afficionado
The Affordable Art Fair’s catalogue gives everything from handy tips for buying and looking at art, to key information such as where to find the bathrooms, and finding places to take the weight of your feet! This year there’s also a dedicated lounge for families to enjoy some time out at the #MadeBySweden Volvo Lounge by official car partner Volvo, and Volvo’s Affordable Art Fair Artist in Residence, Nastya KFKS, will be onsite throughout the fair transporting visitors to a whole new visual environment.
