Our Campaign Story

Hello, I am Gladys.

Two years ago, I took up modern calligraphy as a hobby. After that, I started doing water-colour. I really enjoyed the process of making art and it had helped me through a difficult period of time.

This year, I took up a short course Exploring Art Therapy and it has opened up my perspectives of visual arts and psychotherapy. I benefited a lot through this course and I would like to give back to the society.

Therefore, I start this fund raising for The Red Pencil. I hope to raise funds to benefit more people with art therapy.

I will send you a hand-lettered calligraphy piece or a loose floral watercolour piece as a token of appreciation for your donation.
Please fill up this Google form so that I can send it to you.

P.S The first two photos are what you could be receiving. The third photo is the collation the the art pieces done during my 8 lessons in Exploring Art Therapy. The fourth photo is what I have been trying to do since then - Art journaling. I cannot tell you how much Art has impacted my life and helped me through a short but very very difficult period of my life. I hope Art Therapy can continue to impact more people.

About The Charity

The Red Pencil (Singapore) is an Institution of Public Character and a registered charity founded in Singapore with a mission to bring the benefits of arts therapy (drawing, music, movement and dance) to children, adults and low-income families who have been through overwhelming and traumatic life circumstances such life-threatening illness, violence and abuse, for which they may have no words.

We partner with hospitals, family centres, foster and elderly homes and shelters, schools and prisons, and all health-related institutions to help them incorporate arts therapy as part of their existing psycho-social programmes.

The creative process of arts therapy allows our service users to express the unspeakable, to experience release and relief, to find new resources, gain self-confidence and feel empowered to move on towards a more hopeful and happier life. At The Red Pencil (Singapore), we are dedicated to the resilience and long-term recovery of the most vulnerable from all walks of life, to allow them to grow and become healthy and happy human beings for the world of tomorrow.

Through arts therapy, The Red Pencil (Singapore) helps break the vicious cycles of helplessness and violence, reduces stress and trauma and offers a way of expression towards balance, self-empowerment and resilience. Anyone, anywhere, at any stage in their life, can benefit from arts therapy.
