Visual Arts Centre brings to you, a camp for youths who have always loved characters from movies, books and TV shows. This June, enroll your child in our Character Conceptualization Art camp where we will teach the thought processes behind creating a character, refining that idea and making your character unique by thinking outside the box and norms. Learn how to design a character that lives in a unique world that only YOU can think of and use art mediums to help you explore and bring these character ideas to life!

> What can my child learn?

Programme objectives:

Through this 2 day programme, participants will get to learn how to  conceive and conceptualize a character, making use of their creativity and thinking skills.

Learners will be introduced to the basic skills of drawing and sketching, the fundamentals of art learning. Our facilitators will guide students on expanding their knowledge of various forms of illustration and character design, while teaching them technical skills of drawing and painting at the same time.

This programme would give learners with interest in character conceptualization a unique opportunity to see how one can develop their own ideas into reality.

Participants will also learn to become more independent in their art-making,  be acquainted with both the 2D and 3D skills. This programme also teaches participants how to make use of materials, to become more resourceful in their future projects.

Our facilitators will be here to guide our young participants to be more confident in their art-making skills, guiding them with a positive and encouraging attitude throughout this programme.
