Considering Singapore’s fast-paced society, it’s no secret that many locals are facing high stress levels. While the no-nonsense work and education culture that this little red dot adopts has its’ benefits, it could also mean that Singaporeans are more easily prone to health risks and poor well-being. As such, it is extremely vital that we take a break every once in a while to de-stress and be distracted from the grueling work we faced on a constant basis.
Rather than to participate in conventional activities in Singapore such as hanging out at shopping malls or tourist sites or attractions, why not give Art Jamming a try? Now, hold on. I know some people, especially those who are struggling with creativity, might be momentarily startled by that particular word but let me explain. While you will be expressing your artistic side publicly, Art Jamming takes place in a non-judgemental setting where everyone has the liberty to present their own ideas. This isn’t an art gallery or a competition, so there’s no need to feel pressured to be ‘good’. In fact, even if you consider yourself to be suffering from a lack in creativity, it shouldn’t stop you from attending an Art Jamming workshop.
While it may sound like a bold claim, I’m not joking that everyone should experience this art activity.
These are the reasons why;
1. Therapeutic Benefits
This is a no brainer if my introduction of this post is any indication. By attending an Art Jamming workshop, you will gain many therapeutic and health benefits such as reducing stress and elevating feelings of happiness and relaxation. Immersing yourself with painting or any art activity allows your brain to stimulate and reinvigorate, leaving you feeling more clear and calm at the end of the session. Therefore, if you’re feeling particularly lethargic or unmotivated after days or weeks of hard work, give yourself a little treat by attending an Art Jamming workshop.
2. Increase Self-Esteem
As what I have mentioned above, Art Jamming takes place in a non-critical environment where you won’t be judged or commented on for your creative capabilities. This not only increases your self-esteem, but also allows you to better comprehend yourself, thus setting and achieving better goals in the long run and providing a sense of accomplishment. To those who feel that they are not artistically inclined, this workshop will also enable you to appreciate your individuality, and to be more confident in expressing yourself.
At times, constantly being in the office would deprive your chances of socialising. As such, Art Jamming provides an opportunity for you to get away from your office environment to interact and mingle with friends and family, or even form new friendships with people you have not met! Here at The Fun Empire, we provide a Team-Building package that allows you and your team mates to brainstorm and work together on a single canvas. This creates an inspiring environment where everyone could gain new perspective and insights.
While Art Jamming is commonly regarded as a team-building event, it could also be a great activity if you’re looking for fun things to do in Singapore. It is suitable for a family day out during the weekends, or even as a recreation to bond as a couple or with your friends and colleagues. Therefore, it’s an activity meant for everyone. The Fun Empire and Arteastiq are the two major providers of Art Jamming workshops in Singapore, and we could cater to any event of any size. Be it birthday parties or a corporate team-building event to bring together staff members, Art Jamming would surely be the activity to liven up the mood!
