It’s a first for us—and maybe even the world—a MULTILINGUAL DOODLE DATE!
We’re doing this specially for Singapore’s National Day—to bring some cheer to this very, very tough year.
What’s a Doodle Date? It’s our super-popular livestream session where kids (OK, parents and other relatives often join in too!) throw crazy suggestions for our artist to draw, and then we all learn what they’re called in Mandarin and English. It’s always a giggly, creative session!
So for National Day, we’re celebrating one of the best parts about Singapore—its multicultural, multilingual heritage—with a special Doodle Date in English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil!
Date: Saturday 7th August 2021
Time: 10.30 am
Venue: livestreamed on the Dim Sum Warriors Doodle Date Facebook Group
Bring: Pens/pencils/markers, paper and your sense of humour!
Sign up below to gain access and join in the fun!
We’re so happy to welcome 2 extra-special creative guests to guide us in Malay and Tamil, on top of our English-Chinese mix!
