Raffles Photography and Art Club

 

RPAC2021

 

Raffles Photography and Art Club (RPAC) provides opportunities for students who are passionate about art and photography to learn more about the crafts and hone their creativity and skills through activities curated to meet their needs. In addition, the club assists in documenting the significant school events and organising Inter-House photography competitions, as part of its contribution to the school community. 

COVID19 did not dampen the fervour of our members who still gathered to learn and share during virtual meetings when face-to face meetings were prohibited. Hence, at our regular Friday meetings when face-to-face meetings were permitted, students created jesmonite products, and dabbled with resin and shrink plastic art. While Year 1 students attended a basic photography course, the rest of the club members participated in a series of hands-on creative photography sessions that had “Inequality” in as its theme aligned to Liveable Cities Challenge 2021- using food ingredients to portray social inequality. Additionally, the students explored making pinhole camera to light painting photography.   Students also learnt the importance of cultivating specific skills, knowledge, and attitudes when it came to nature photography, underwater photography and street photography through virtual sharing sessions helmed by award winning local photographers or artists. While photography excursions could not be conducted, students were still able to apply their photography skills using the expansive and beautiful campus as their venue. 

It has been a meaningful year for the Club and this is due to both the able student leadership and the positive collaboration between the student leaders and the teachers-in-charge.
