Dragon boat and clown watercolour painting taught in our school holiday online art classes
Online Art Workshop B & C
(Drawing and painting)
June school holiday 2021

This is available periodically and during times when physical classes have to be suspended. These classes are as beneficial as physical classes because students acquire and sharpen skills very much the same as in a face-to-face setting. Like our studio classes, our online classes provide clear step-by-step drawing, colour mixing and painting demonstration. We review students' artworks frequently during the class to ensure drawing proportion, colour shades and painting techniques are met. As online art classes are remote and highly visual, it builds up concentration and independence in a child. We welcome children / teenagers looking for adhoc classes or staying far from us to join this class.

This Children's Day event had garnered much popularity that we decide to offer it again this school holiday.

Here is a second chance to attend it so remember to register early. The kids will learn to make some charms using shrink plastic. The charm designs include bubble tea, unicorn poop, funny poop and face mask with cute faces. The children have to first draw and colour their desired designs on the shrink plastic sheets. After drawing and cutting, their drawn plastics will be placed into the oven to bake. Their plastics will shrink smaller and thicker after baking. Attached some straps and their charms are completed. Kids can hang these charms on their bags, pencil cases, keychains etc. as ornaments and carry them around. You can't buy these charms elsewhere because they are personally created by the children themselves!
