In Chinese culture, calligraphy is an important art form that transcends generations; paintings are the expression of artists’ creativity, these artworks are heritage preserved for generations. Since 2010, Ngee Ann Cultural Centre, a subsidiary of The Ngee Ann Kongsi, has been organising the Ngee Ann National Students’ Calligraphy Competition and Ngee Ann National Day Calligraphy and Painting Exhibition each year, to promote and preserve both Western and Chinese art forms.
The Ngee Ann National Students’ Calligraphy Competition aims to promote Chinese Calligraphy and foster a greater awareness of the traditional art form amongst the younger generation. The iconic event is open to all primary, secondary as well as college students in Singapore and attracts approximately 200 students every year. Attractive awards are given to deserving students. NACC hopes to develop students’ interest in ancient art as well as the Chinese language. Students can also benefit from practising calligraphy as a means for self-cultivation. It is the practice of NACC to display some of the winning entries alongside the works of veteran artists in “Ngee Ann National Day Calligraphy and Painting Exhibition” as a gesture of encouragement to students.
