In celebration of Singapore’s heritage, this educational guided programme introduces students to monuments, sculptures and sites of historical and cultural importance along the banks of the Singapore River. It aims to increase visual literacy that stipulates art as a tool to discover Singapore’s colourful past. Hike It! tours at the Singapore River provide a fun and educational guided introduction to monumental sculptures and sites of art and historical importance along the banks of the Singapore River.
Students will be guided with a storytelling journey around the Singapore River to learn about Singapore’s history through the different landmarks and sculptures portraying the life of Singaporeans in the past. They will also learn about different sculpture forms, materials and tools that are used in sculpture-making and develop an appreciation for sculptures as an art form. An opportunity to tie in their learning through art-making will be provided during the programme. Among the sites that we are touring will be the statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, First Generation, Sarawak Ceremonial Pole, Kucinta Cats, and many more historically important and artistically exciting points of interests.
