We offer great variety of art classes by art teachers who are experts in the field of arts and instruction. Our teachers are mostly local graduates from education establishments such as School of the Arts Singapore (SOTA) and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). However being an artist does not automatically translate into a good instructor. Hence our artists have experience in teaching art classes, especially to beginners.
For the working adult we conduct classes knowing fully well that the adult has a full time job. As working adults have a busy schedule especially in fast pace Singapore, an effective teaching method is required to ensure no time is wasted. For the convenience of our students our venues are diverse, from the central business districts to even housing estates in Yishun and Hougang. Not sure what you are comfortable with? As a start, our art classes for adults allow you to discover your own art style through ongoing explorations and experimental exercises. We have art classes such as ceramic art classes or oil painting classes.
The art of perfecting art is 95% practical and 5% theory hence practise makes perfect. But practise without guidance produces no results. It is hence important that the teacher gives specific instructions before the students goes home on his self practise.
Art has the following elements which we will put emphasis on; practise , self-discipline and critical thinking.
No art lesson is complete without the knowledge of its history. Aside from practical studio assignment, we give instructions on art history and contemporary art subjects. To fully appreciate traditional art we must have an understanding of the art history and the issues posed by digital media. Hence we organise museum trips to places such as the ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands or the Singapore Art Museum.
We believe that the serious pursuit of art classes has benefits on family and working life, especially in a fast pace society in Singapore. It is a well known fact that artists such as musicians are detailed, patient and are cultured.
In modern times we encounter over-stimulation from many sources such as social media and instant messaging. Just like meditation, art allows us to hold back and pay attention to our senses. It teaches us to explore the boundaries of our creativity and enjoy the finer things in life. Hence we recommend art classes for adults.
Like building a house, art requires planning in advance. Taking a art class trains us in planning. But unlike building a house, art allows us to keep trying and take risks even after failures. Art gives us a deeper awareness and understanding of ourselves and makes our life better, become a more passionate and sensitive human beings.
