Professional Art Courses in East of Singapore

Recently, Singapore art courses are gaining huge popularity among teens and adults. Some adults take up art as their hobby, meanwhile teenagers are busy equipping themselves with foundational art skills training for art college admission. Aiming for their dream school, some students enrol into a visual arts Direct School Admission (DSA) portfolio preparation course. As passion in art grows, art schools for kids mushroomed on the east side (near Marine Parade, Joo Chiat, Katong, Tampines area). To cater the growing interest in kid’s art courses, Visual Arts Centre Singapore has set up an art studio in the East to provide professional art courses.

We at Visual Arts Centre have in total 8 local artist instructors graduated from professional art schools. Some of which had relocated to Singapore with a prestigious education in China, as well as America. With years of teaching experience, they are constantly building solid art foundations for teenagers seeking to enrol in art colleges through customised art course curriculums, for students with different levels in skills. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, we can cater to your skills with simple to advanced subjects, with increasing difficulty levels as we progress. To ensure successful admission, Visual Arts Centre Singapore had set up a portfolio preparation course for youths /teenagers, preparing them from foundation – observational and realism to conceptualisation of creative works and development of individual style as well as to work as an independent artist. We also provide Q&A and briefing sessions to better prepare for the entire admission process. This will allow the students to complete their dream portfolio efficiently.

Visual Arts Centre has 2 art studios with the main branch located at city central area, just within Dhoby Ghaut Green and above Dhoby Ghaut MRT station Exit B. We are also available at AZ@ Paya Lebar Building #03-04. Students can choose to join our professional art courses at their preferred art studio and time slots as per their convenience.
