As a parent, one may ask: is art good for my child? Will learning art be beneficial to the brain development of my child? Is kids art class good for pre-school education? We understand that most parents would want their child to build a solid foundation of important skills such as good motor control, or values like discipline and focus. Research has proven that art is indeed helpful in the early development of the human brain. Art can help your child to train their communication skills, spacial awareness, focus, motor skills, patience and so on. Thus, we strongly encourage that you bring your child to take up art lessons, at Visual Arts Centre Singapore!

They can also spice their art piece up using colour pencils, markers, watercolours and so on!

What do you focus on for each age group in this Kids Art Class?

  1. Ages 4-6: Training of the children’s creativity and imagination. As our teachers tell stories and describe the various elements of nature, kids can use their creativity to doodle out the image they have in mind. The course does not require the kids to be accurate in their form, but rather trains their idea generation.
  2. Ages 6-8: Trains on the kids’ expression. In this course, kids can recreate sceneries, animals and plants through getting their hands on clay sculpting, followed by drawing it down on a piece of paper. They will also be asked to create a story of their own and tell it to the class, thus training their hands-on skills, mind and communication skills.
  3. Ages 8-11: Focuses on the observation skills of the kids. Your child(ren) will observe the life that is around them, and express them correctly onto their paper. They will also utilise mediums such as acrylic and watercolour to complete their art piece. It will also train them for their patience, and build good foundation for professional art careers in the future.
