We should never restrict our kids to one particular style of learning. In our Kids Art Class, we believe every child has their own way of learning. Thus, they should never be restricted to focusing on just one particular style or format.

Instead, at Visual Arts Centre Kids Art Classes, we embrace each children’s style of learning and adapt to their needs while teaching them the foundational techniques to bring their imagination to life. Each child will be guided by their individual needs by our professional instructors. They get to explore different mediums, experiment with various tools, and learn essential art skills that forms the building blocks of their artistic journey, which will then be translated to their artworks.

Our Kids Art Class is conducted in a workshop-class style to encourage collaboration and fosters a sense of community among young artists which provides opportunities for them to develop important communication skills through learning from their peers, and appreciate the diverse perspectives and ideas within the class. They will be encouraged to freely express themselves while learning of the different artistic techniques as taught by our professional instuctors.

At Visual Arts Centre, we take pride in achieving the right balance between training and individual expression. When assessing your child’s work, we never expect it to be picture-perfect. Every child has their own signature style and their way of interpreting and we respect that each of them may process things differently. Very much like heuristics, children have a way of breaking down the picture references in the easiest way possible for them. Thus, instead of correcting them, it is in our believe to embrace this cognitive behaviour and continue to engage and inspire them to cultivate their utmost creativity in the way that works best for them.

According to the age of your children, our experienced art instructors will come up with drawing and paintings of different mediums lessons for them. This way, you can be sure that your child is learning something while having fun!
