Learn how to create haiga art – composing haiku accompanied with a sketch – that captures special memories of a place you love.
A workshop to introduce the art form of haiga (haiku with ink drawing), modernised from 16th-century Japan, with a focus on places. Koh Buck Song will speak from his haiga practice since 2015, including from his book Around the World in 68 Days: Observations of Life from a Journey Across 13 Countries (Penguin, 2021).
Participants interested in both poetry and drawing can pick up tips on how to write haiku poems and draw sketches of places they love, either somewhere in Singapore, or visited overseas, especially as global travel reopens.
