Other educational resources available on The National Art Gallery, Singapore’s website include two online games, one of which, called “Like”, asks you to choose artworks you find most appealing in order to compile a profile of your art preferences. The other tests your pattern matching skills. A few publications are profiled on their site and some are available to order through email.
