UOB launches the 34th Painting of the Year competition launch with abstract art workshop for children

The atrium of UOB Plaza turned into a lively classroom on 23 June 2015 when United Overseas Bank (UOB) held an abstract art workshop there for 30 children from Thye Hua Kwan Family Service Centre @ Tanjong Pagar. This workshop was facilitated by 2014 UOB Painting of the Year Singapore winner Ms Om Mee Ai and marked the launch of the 2015 UOB Painting of the Year competition.

Ms Om was glad to see the children enjoying themselves and was impressed with their creativity.

“Each child came up with something quite different and interesting. They displayed a lot of creativity and I enjoyed conducting this workshop,” Ms Om said.
