Meet the Symposium Instructors: Anita Ryanto

Anita Ryanto, Singapore

AR Under The Olive Tree 3

Anita Ryanto is a full-time lecturer at Ngee Ann Polytechnic, School of InfoComm Technology, Singapore. She has been teaching foundation drawing and painting classes with traditional and digital mediums to students attending the Diploma in Animation & 3D Arts and the Diploma in Multimedia & Animation for nearly 10 years.

Anita holds a Degree in Illustration from Curtin University, Western Australia and a Diploma in Graphic Design from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore.

Her passion for drawing has grown even stronger ever since she joined Urban Sketchers Singapore three years ago. With her constant companions – a sketchbook, a traveller palette, a few pens and a water brush, she is always ready to sketch anywhere, anytime.

A self-confessed food-aholic and sketching addict, she is currently working on a book featuring her food sketches in water color.

Activity 1: Street Food Sketching.

Yuan Yang Hill St cafe

Singapore is a small island with a rich cultural diversity. Her island people include races from all over the world. Her street food embodies and reflects this rich cultural heritage.

The diverse heritage of Singapore’s street food is definitely worth sketching. In this activity, the participants will take away with them some cultural knowledge of the local cuisine from the major ethnic groups – Chinese, Malay & Indian including Peranakan.

They will get to taste the colors and feel the textures of Singapore Street Food through sketching in pen and watercolour. And they get to taste the food, too!
