About Us

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 less privileged 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.

Our Programmes

The Red Pencil's unique model of intervention is rooted with the core understanding that arts therapy is essential to support those coping with the aftermath of traumatic events.

We offer comprehensive cycles of arts therapy sessions to the most vulnerable groups and individuals, long enough to make a positive change, and led by certified and registered arts therapists.

We collaborate with local and international NGOs and organisations that are able to identify where the most crucial needs are on the ground. These organisations reach out to The Red Pencil for arts therapy programmes to complement their work in the field. We receive requests from hospitals, shelters, prisons, schools, family centers.
