Get away from the urban jungle – you deserve a break. Take part in art jamming sessions, try a floral arrangement workshop or learn some new dance moves at Esplanade this July 2018!
You know what they say – all work and no play makes <insert name> a dull person… If that’s your motto (and if you love all things artsy), we’ve got the ‘play hard’ section covered for you this July at Esplanade. We can’t think of a better way to destress and do some serious good for our mind, body, and spirit, and if that sounds awesome to you, then head on down in July for some serious fun.
Fancy an art jamming sesh?
Art therapy FTW! Unleash your inner Picasso at Articulture’s art jamming sessions. Held on 4, 11, 18, and 25 July 2018 (from 7pm to 9:30pm), each session costs $48 per pax and includes a blank canvas plus unlimited use of acrylic paints, brushes, palettes, and any other tool you need. Just pop by with your pals, zone out, and paint away… artistic talent is optional.
How about the therapeutic art of floral arrangement?
Try your hand at the therapeutic art of arranging flowers and let the folks of Meadows & Clouds guide you during the Dried Floral Bouquet Workshop on 22 July 2018 (1pm to 3pm, $100 per pax). The class is kept small, with a maximum capacity of eight attendees so don’t worry about being lost or confused at any point.
… Or a dance class?
Excited for Esplanade’s annual da:ns festival? Then start your own little celebration of dance early this year with da:ns festival’s Footwork Workshops, where you’ll be able to pick up slick moves from the pros. The workshops ($15 per session per pax) are great for beginners, and it doesn’t matter how old or young you are. Take your pick from genres like ballet (with your lil’ baby too, if you want!), K-pop, swing, cha-cha-cha, and attend classes on either 21 July or 22 July 2018. Check the Esplanade website for schedules and details, and make your bookings online.
Other happenings in July
If you need more excuses to break free from the daily grind, here’s some options for you: Check out free daily jazz performances at Esplanade and the annual Pesta Raya – Malay Festival of Arts (12 to 15 July) for a spot of arts and culture.
Can’t wait? We know! Visit Esplanade for more information and start reserving those slots ASAP. You deserve some major R&R, anyway!
