Storytelling is Influence, Persuasion and Innovation.


Stories In Art @ National Gallery Singapore


11, 12, 25, 26 April 2020

The artwork ‘Seascape’ (woodcut) 1966 from the DBS Singapore Gallery triggers stories of pirates, lively songs and magical tales. Known as grandmother storyteller, Jessie Goh is a veteran storyteller who will enthral everyone with The Pirates of Riau and The Magic Fish.   

Stories In Art

More than appearance, a work of art ignites imagination and stories. 

Every second and fourth weekend of the month, a storyteller will use the National Gallery’s exhibitions as a springboard to introduce children to art. Each storyteller will masterfully weave stories to engage the imagination and stimulate curiosities in a fun-filled way!

Time: 2.30–3.15pm and 3.30–4.15pm.  

Free (registration required)

Register:     Keppel Centre for Art Education Family Reception from 10am  on the day of the programme
