In the “Discover” section, students will learn about the artworks through animations, audio clips and quizzes. In the “Create” section, students respond to artworks through games and through sketching out ideas, such as their vision of Singapore’s future using an in-app digital drawing tool. The tool also provides students with ideas of futuristic buildings and vehicles to stimulate their imagination and trigger their creativity.
