During the September Holidays, Princess attended a ‘Paint Like the Masters’ Art Class, and was treated to a brief introduction to the life of Vincent Van Gogh and his works.
This was conducted by the Sembawang Family Enrichment Network, located just within minutes from the Admiralty Mrt Station, and it’s run by a group a warm and friendly Aunties and Uncles.
They have very interesting programs lined up during the holidays, thus do check them out at http://www.sfen.sg/events.php.
She learnt that although Van Gogh sold only one painting in his life, the aftermath of his work is enormous. Starry Night is one of the most well known images in modern culture as well as being one of the most replicated and sought after prints.
Van Gogh painted Starry Night while in an Asylum at Saint-Remy in 1889. During his younger years (1876-1880) he wanted to dedicate his life to evangelization of those in poverty. Many believe that this religious endeavour may be reflected in the eleven stars of the painting.
