Come create art under the guidance of Christian artists and be inspired by their life stories, art and faith.
Samantha Cheong is a graphic designer by training but a storyteller at heart.
Having also a background in illustration, painting, writing (particularly songwriting) and music, she enjoys weaving different elements together to create an authentic story.
She believes that everyone has a story to tell and enjoys listening to others while developing heartfelt connections. Believing that the world is best experienced through child-like wonder, Samantha also often adds a touch of whimsical fun and playfulness to her works.
Check out Samantha’s work @mismatchedcrayon.
Chow Shan Shan experienced the power of art during a faith journey in 2017 when she studied oil painting and poetry at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Greece.
Between semesters, she followed open doors to different countries and gained cultural experiences while connecting with art communities. It was through these travels that she experienced the power of art in herself and others as she created art and shared them.
Check out Shan Shan’s work @shan2art.
Sound of Art’s artist, Erica Wee, works mainly with acrylic and oil. Representational and figurative, Erica’s art captures the realistic nature of her subjects, while interjecting an abstract touch. They are traditional, yet styled with a daring modern slant and juxtaposed with a dramatic edge. The results are bold, uplifting “statement artworks” which are as energetic and vivacious as the artist herself.
Erica enjoys creating in different styles of contemporary realism, minimalism, still life, pop art, and even mural art. Participants will be guided by Erica in using acrylic paint to create their own silhouette paintings around the theme of nature.
Check out Erica’s work @soundofart.co.
Sound of Art’s artist, Swasti Wonowidjojo, started as a digital artist but discovered her deep interest in traditional media and began painting in oil and acrylics.
She received Christ in 2016, and her newfound faith provided deep wells of creative inspiration from which she could draw. It soon became apparent that her works were developing a decidedly Christian slant. It gives her a personal sense of fulfilment to convey messages from the heart of the Father onto the canvas.
With Swasti’s guidance, participants will be able to freely create plant-themed works using acrylic paint. They will be able to indulge in their own imagination or interpretation of nature through such creativity.

Jillian Cheong is an artist and mother of three. Art has been a gift to express her personal journey and faith. She believes in the value of creating artworks that inspire hope.
Come for a time of personal reflection and storytelling. Learn to create an art piece that tells your own story. Be attentive to the blessings in your life and create a piece of art which will serve as a reminder of hope.
