10% OFF PROMOTION – Creative Kids Art Immersion Course
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.
Registrations are ongoing, please contact us for any queries or to join the course.
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 exploreconcepts 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.
12 Sessions are to be completed within 20 weeks from the date of registration. All course fees are non-refundable. In the event that one is unable to attend the classes, one replacement is allowed to substitute the original registrant.
