OUR SERVICES > THE ARTS MARKET (TAM)

ABOUT TAM

The Arts Market (TAM) is Singapore's first arts education centre for seniors. It offers a variety of exciting courses and learning opportunities in music, visual arts, creative arts, theatre and new arts Through TAM, we hope seniors can take on a new found or dormant interest, which may not have been fulfilled given the lack of opportunities previously.

WHY TAM

We offer a holistic education through our E3 approach of Experience, Extend and Excel. Through TAM, we hope seniors' lives can be enriched through arts and eventually use their talents to benefit the community. We are also proud to announce that our drawing and painting classes are supported by Faber-Castell products, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality products for writing, drawing, colouring and creative design.
