Creative Kids Art Immersion Course 儿童创意绘画课程

Creative Kids Art Immersion Course by VAC Studio takes on a unique learning approach that encourages children to think out of the box. The course takes the kids through a fun learning journey of discovery and creativity with a wide variety of themes being covered – from the arts to the sciences to geography to anything under their imagination – the world is their oyster to explore! Kids will experiment and create art with multiple mediums – jumping clay, drawing and colour pencils, crayons, markers, acrylic paint and multi-media collage.

A positive and nurturing environment is crucial to a child’s development and learning. Both the physical setting and how the child feels and responds to his or her learning environment will determine how conducive and enjoyable the learning experience. The VAC Studio is a beautiful glasshouse indoor art studio set within the lush park ambience of the Dhoby Ghaut Green lawn – a spacious and safe setting for kids to rest and play with each other before or after class. Our art instructors are experienced in working with kids. Art instructors inspire our kids to be creative and interest them to explore and investigate within the theme of the week, teaching them the skills of observation, perspective, form, and composition, and encouraging them to appropriate, invent and create their own form of art based on their imagination and artistic direction. The course also introduces professional art techniques to the kids, and they will be taught useful skills in handling various mediums. Unlike how adults view and critique art, it is important to allow our kids to express their creativity and imagination, and not set limitations or standards of art to replicate! After all, children are extremely creative and they learn differently from adults. This is how our unique learning approach aims to provide a stimulating environment that encourages creativity and promotes individuality.

怎样“教”小朋友画画?

1)正确引导

其实小孩天生就会画画,

幼儿绘画的目的不是要小孩记住形象,画出大人认为“像”的东西,而是要他们画出自己的真实想法。小孩的绘画作品不是教出来的,而是引导出来的。通过趣味故事引导绘画欲望;

2)采取“自然法”

首先为小孩创造画画环境,在特定的环境氛围中,小孩只要拿起画笔就可以随意涂鸦了。

另外和小伙伴一起画画也是重要环境之一,儿童绘画是儿童的造型游戏,既然是游戏,就要有游戏伙伴,和伙伴一起“玩”一样的事,小朋友会无比喜悦的。

德国教育家福禄贝尔曾经说过:“游戏是学习的最高境界,动手制作和绘画等”造型游戏“是孩子们最好的游戏”。让孩子们动手做造型,通过手和眼的完美配合,锻炼手眼协调能力,培养判断未来并采取行动的能力。“画画玩耍”是孩子们除语言之外的表达方式,小孩在很小的时候无法用语言充分表达自己的想法,又不能靠文字,那绘画成为他们非常有效的一种讲述自己感受的方式。大人欣赏小孩的绘画,是来”听“的,听明白了,理解了,小孩的画画乐趣就进一步地提高了。这也算是最有效的”亲子“沟通方式吧!

儿童绘画不在于教授绘画技巧;不介意是否画的“像”;而是作为一个人在成长之初,尝试对“美”的第一次碰撞。

新加坡视觉艺术中心为小朋友设计的绘画游戏、动手制作游戏等课程,专业教师采取正确引导与“自然法”的教学方式授课,充分开发小朋友的潜能,使小朋友的沟通能力、表达能力、创新能力都加以提高。

Course description:

How is the art course conducted, and what are the learning objectives?

The Creative Kids Art Immersion Course is ongoing from 28 January 2018, and you can either register for the 12 sessions pass for $460, or the half-year and year-long pass at $880 and $1680 respectively. Our pricing is reasonable and includes all the material fees consumed during the sessions. The 12 sessions course concludes with a multi-media portfolio of various works completed, while the longer courses will consist of a more substantial multi-media portfolio of works completed, and a Junior Level Artist Graduation Certificate issued by Visual Arts Centre. Kids learn and acquire art skills and techniques and develop a confidence to work on art and craft projects independently as well as in groups.

Different themes are covered each week, which would cover a wide scope of topics, such as Animal Kingdom, Nature, World Art, Geography, Science, History, Cartoon and Animation, Colours, Forms and Shapes… and many more.

Kids learn over time and learning art from a young age is highly beneficial for a child’s overall development and happiness. Art can help one to build fine motor skills, train patience and focus, stimulate the brain and promote creativity and expression, and may also be a therapeutic way to release tension or anxiety. Developing a hobby and being good in something may be challenging at the start whether for kids or for adults, however, encourage our kids to enjoy themselves and have a ball of fun, and during this process, they would have picked up and learnt a lot without even realising it!

Age Groups & Classification 

Children in this age group are bursting with energy and their minds function like a sponge ready to absorb any new information presented to them! This is why our specially designed programme is centered around introducing your child to a multitude of interesting mediums and art forms. When young children are creatively stimulated from an early age, they develop higher order creative thinking and problem solving skills, allowing them to deepen their thought processes to become independent creators.

Guidance towards creative thinking and hands-on exploration and creation. Through story-telling, playing of short video clips and visual references, kids are inspired and guided to understand the subjects and then given the freedom to express various objects and subjects such as their favourite animals, their imagination of a garden, landscape and mountains. Our learning objective for this age group is not for the kids to draw or paint by just copying the images directly, but to really inspire their creativity and to give them the opportunity to create and express the things they like and also learn basic art techniques in this process.

Multi-media includes: Pencil/Coloured drawings, Markers and Crayons, Collage and Paper-cutting, Jumping Clay Moulding, Three-dimensional assorted materials, Poster painting/Acrylic painting on canvas

Children in this age group are beginning to develop their own personal voice and individuality. They understand the importance of the skills that they are learning and desire to improve themselves, especially with some healthy competition from peers. Our specially designed programme for children aged 7-12 aims to help inquisitive kids realise their full creative potential by introducing advanced skills and art techniques. These higher level skills will differentiate your child’s artistic abilities and allow them to express themselves creatively through art.

Learn to express oneself – emphasising on creative expressions and different ways of expressions. We empower kids of this age group with the ability to apply basic art techniques in their expression. Art theories will be introduced and kids will be taught the basic skills of observation, and gain an understanding of perspective, proportion and composition, allowing them to acquire the ability to observe in finer details and portray subjects of our immediate environment with definition, weight, space and depth concepts. They will produce artworks and share the stories behind their creation. We challenge our kids to improve their art skills and use collage and other craft materials to create three dimensional art and explore concepts of textures, balance and proportion. Chinese Ink painting will be introduced to this age group to train focus, patience and fine control with brushwork.

Multi-media includes: Pencil/Coloured drawings, Markers and Crayons, Collage and Paper-cutting, Jumping Clay Moulding, Three-dimensional assorted materials, Poster painting/Acrylic painting on canvas.
