One of the 3 wings of the Aesthetic Club, NJC Art Club has members who are excited about discovering the different potentials art-making offers. Sessions predominantly comprises of learning new techniques as a community and occasionally planning projects that can impact the NJC community such as through our mural work around college. Art making techniques are partly led by the Art Teacher-in-charge, or by the senior members of Art Club. We have previously done ceramics, urban sketching, watercolour, silkscreen bags, oil painting, casting sculpture, fashion design, and various crafts. Much of what we do is based on current students’ interest areas. Have a look at what we do: #njARC If you are interested to find out more, drop by our sessions at the artroom level 1, Wednesday 3:45pm
