Our Space & Vision
ROKU Atelier was created to be a space to bring together a community with a love for creating real, physical objects of beauty in the form of art. People who believe in the value of disconnecting from the digital, to be more mindful of the moment, of human connections, of every touch of the brush on canvas.
We're not for everyone, but we're excited to have a small group of people who identify with our vision, and we know you're out there. We don't feed you a standard way of creating art, we teach the skills and help you find your own style. What you do with it is your freedom of expression.
Our peaceful and well-lit studio is a hidden gem on a rooftop garden in the North of Singapore, near neighbouring housing estates. We have designed the best possible environment for art-making, where everyone feels comfortable and at home. This is the perfect spot to spend your relaxing weekends and evenings. When you step through the door, leave everything behind.
