“We are transforming the ION Art Gallery space into a stimulating environment where we want to take children on a journey of different levels. On one level, it is about desserts to inspire art-making. Then, on another level, it is about learning kindness, being giving, and thoughtfulness, and here is where we incorporate the story of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to tell the story of a poor boy who had nothing but gave everything of himself. Lastly, the level where we leave children with an awareness to watch what they eat, especially sweet things.”

Ruby Lim-Yang
Artistic Director
ACT 3 International


An all-in-one sense-ability extravaganza of visual arts exhibition, workshops and storytelling for children from ages 4 to 8

For ages 4 to 8
May 28 to June 5, 2016
ION Art Gallery
Duration: 2 hours

Step into SWEET, a dessert factory, where all things heavenly, sugared and good are made and where your children will experience a delightful and tasty time like no other!

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s most cherished storybook, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, this all-in-one delicious extravaganza will leave your children salivating for more with not one but four exciting activities. Be entertained by SWEET Supervisor Kimberly as she brings you on an adventure through a storytelling performance. Learn to move and physicalise actions through creative expression in a Drama Workshop with Teacher Kim. Watch in awe as Teacher April,  Juriah demonstrate how easy it is to create colourful lollipops.  And, together with the help of Chef Sharon, learn how to make your own edible ice cream!

Held in the beautiful space of the ION Art Gallery which will be magically transformed into a multi-sensorial land of desserts, this 2-hour confectionery celebration will stimulate all of your children’s five senses through sight, taste, touch, smell and sound, enthralling them from the get-go!
