About Pulau Ubin
Pulau Ubin is a haven for art, heritage, and culture lovers. With kampung houses, a biodiversity of large and small birds, dense mangroves, and fishing folk by the coast, Pulau Ubin offers artists a place of serenity and inspiration. It offers intimate views of the wetlands, bumboats and kelongs by the sunset, clear blue fish farms and lakes, and a great seagrass lagoon for landscape artists. Its wooden homes, sustained by Ubin’s locals, provision shops, and temples make for great subjects for artists of any levels.

This is our community project in support of non-profit community group Artsolute

  • was amazing what we ALL could achieve within only 3 hours, in a fun and relaxed session! Loved learning the technique and it’s immediate application. It was a bonus to do this at Pulau Ubin (this time) and see some Singapore kampong spirit up-close. Count me in for the next one!

  • Chance upon ChanKerk’s Pulau Ubin Sketching Workshop, to discover my inner soul’s of creativity! :)ChanKerk’s shared tips to sketch by Intuition within a half day workshop in rustic background of Pulau Ubin that I can now confidently put into street sketching opportunities! Was fun and will definitely join again!

  • ...A half day of "The Ubin Art Excursion", I learned to open my artistic peaceful mind, almost melting in beauty of sketching inspired by Chankerk. MyArtSpace was found in the different location in a perfect place like Pulau Ubin…

  • Pulau Ubin art experience was great. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, and being in a small group. We could chat and share our paintings, and see how others approached the same scene. We had a number of sessions, moving to different locations on the island, and at the end of each session we all shared our work together, including exchange of our challenges and feedback. It’s a lovely place for painting.

  • I truly enjoyed the sketching trip at Pulau Ubin. What more could one want: nice weather, lovely landscape untouched by the rapid urbanization of Singapore, good company and an amazing artist sharing his passion with us?
