GemKids Virtual Exhibition 2020 – Tabebuia Rosea

Children are introduced to Tabebuia Rosea (风铃木), commonly known as the ‘Malaysian Sakura’. It is a common sight along the highways and neighbourhood gardens, however only blooming twice a year. Children are guided to draw a life-like tree using simple watercolours techniques and utilizing cotton buds to create the flowers. The flowers symbolize impermanence in life.

For younger children, they had a bit of fun using straws to blow the wet paint and create the branches.
