This 2023 June Holidays we are offering a full range of mediums for your teens to explore and learn with us! 

Professional art courses should never be boring and at Visual Arts Centre, we provide opportunities for your child to develop artistic knowledge and skills through a range of media, forms and expressions.

Choose up to Four types of mediums/styles of art for your kid’s creative immersion (A unique artwork will be finished in two to three classes, depending on the medium)

  • 2D illustration drawing and creative drawing with crayons, colouring pencils and markers – interesting new ways to see and draw

  • Acrylic Painting – Still Life Basket of Fruits, Nature’s Flowers and Fauna, My Favorite Animal

> All art materials are provided for this course! Parents and kids can choose up to two types of mediums/styles of artworks under the Holiday Art Immersion Course.

Our Approach

At Visual Arts Centre, we believe that each child learns at a different pace. Thus, each class will be conducted at your kid’s individual preference 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 individual guidance by our professional instructors and studio assistants in regular intervals during the duration of each class.

This 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 that goes hand in hand with our Art Portfolio Preparation Course.

The Art Portfolio Preparation Course is perfect for students applying for local art academies such as Nanyang College of Art (NAFA) , LaSalle College of Art,  Singapore Art Institute (SOTA), NUS, NTU or foreign art academies that requires them to prepare a personal art collection.

If your child want to enter their ideal art school with special talents, they can add to their artistic talents and enter the DSA Art Specialty Program. Visual Arts Centre provides training courses. These courses includes basic sketch training, basic color training, three-dimensional composition courses, creative training, interview experience training and other preparation courses.

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.
