Calling all aspiring illustrators and art enthusiasts!
The National Library Board (NLB) invites you to create a visual impact in our library spaces, and inspire a creative culture within the community!
We are looking for 3 groups of youths who are passionate about the arts and visual storytelling, to lead the Shelf Initiated Project (SIP) at Woodlands Regional Library, Jurong Regional Library and Central Public Library. Learn first-hand from experienced artists, on the illustration techniques and conceptualisation skills required to develop an original and distinctive visual narrative for a library shelf, inspired by a piece of literary work. Aspiring illustrators and hobbyists are welcomed.
Your illustrations will enliven library spaces and make someone’s reading experience more colourful! 

- Successful applicants will be split into 3 groups, with each group assigned an artist-mentor.
- Sessions will be held at either Woodlands Regional Library, Jurong Regional Library or Central Public Library. Each group will be allocated a library venue and shelf to work on.
- Each session will be 2 to 3 hours long.
Artists’ Bios
Elen Winata’s works span across different mediums such as illustration, digital, design and advertising. Her works are known for their clean lines and vibrant colours, which are held together by simple but thought provoking ideas.
Dan Wong’s illustrations and paintings usually follow a Singaporean-centric theme, with a satirical light.  Dan places great emphasis on entertaining, provoking, and finally rewarding his audiences with his work.
Darel Seow is a visual storyteller who illustrates the tales of the natural world through his unique brand of wry wit and whimsy. He believes in the draw of storytelling as a means of engagement, creating experiences that simultaneously excite and educate.
