At Visual Arts Centre, we believe that each child learns at a different pace. Thus, each class will be conducted at your teen’s individual preferences and abilities. No workshop-style classes nor classroom styled teaching! Despite being in class with other students, your child will be taught according to their preferred mediums and will be given one-to-one individualised guidance by our professional instructors and studio assistants in regular intervals during the duration of each class.

Our holiday art programme would provide a good platform to build up a small portfolio and a good stepping stone to allow them to learn basic foundational techniques and advanced according to their level. These art training will go hand in hand with our Art Portfolio Preparation ( Process) Course for DSA or Diploma or university admission.

Academy Drawing Traditions

The academy drawing and sketching tradition, rooted in centuries of artistic practice, emphasizes disciplined study of form, proportion, and technique. Originating from Renaissance workshops and formalized by institutions like the Royal Academy, it prioritizes meticulous observation and mastery of fundamental skills. Students progress from basic exercises to complex compositions, learning to depict still life and common objects with precision and expression. This tradition values both classical principles and innovation, encouraging artists to push boundaries while maintaining a deep respect for tradition. Through rigorous training and critique, artists within this tradition cultivate a strong foundation for creative exploration and artistic excellence.

Chinese Ink Painting and Calligraphy

This course on Chinese ink painting and calligraphy introduces young learners to the rich traditions of Chinese art. Through hands-on activities, students explore the basics of brush techniques, ink control, and the delicate art of Chinese script. They learn to appreciate the cultural significance of calligraphy and painting, developing skills in creating elegant strokes and expressive brushwork. The course fosters creativity, patience, and fine motor skills, while also providing insights into Chinese history and aesthetics. By the end, children gain confidence in their artistic abilities and a deeper understanding of Chinese cultural heritage.

Batik Tales

In the Batik Introduction Handkerchief Painting workshop, participants will learn the traditional art of batik, a wax-resist dyeing technique originating from Indonesia.
