What’s On This Week: 14 — 20 January

Looking for somewhere to bring your little ones this week? Here are our top picks of things to do in the week ahead and it’s full of events for everyone in the family.

Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder

We think that little ones will enjoy time spent in the Relativity Room aspect of the Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder exhibition at the ArtScience Museum, where their illusions of size and space will be distorted. If that doesn’t cut it for them, no worries, the vibrant, engaging colours will definitely keep children entertained and are a great introduction into the cultural sophistication that is the appreciation of art. if you head down on 20 January 2017, as part of Family Fridays, there will be a Make Your Own Tessellation Prints workshop where kids can draw inspiration from Escher’s tessellation artworks to make their own print for just S$3.
