September Sketchwalk at Old Changi Hospital


Credits: Banner photo by Jerome Lim

For this month's sketchwalk, we will visit a piece of our history with an illustrious past - the Old Changi Hospital at Netheravon Road. Access inside the buildings are restricted, but we can sketch from the outside. Give yourselves some time to make your way there as it is quite "ulu", but this is a rare chance to sketch this far-flung part of Singapore. If you have the time, stay for the sunset at the Changi Boardwalk, or have a bite at Coastal Settlement, which is quite a place to sketch as well.
