6 Art Studios in Singapore That Could Foster Your Child’s Inner Van Gogh

6 Art Studios in Singapore That Could Foster Your Child’s Inner Van Gogh

Do you find yourself nowadays scraping your child’s drawings off your walls and coffee tables? Why not direct his artistic tendencies towards something more practical? Singapore has lots of arts and crafts classes that can unleash his inner Van Gogh. Your child’s talent may be inborn, but you still need to enhance it with the help of teachers and other kids who share the same passion.

Aside from painting, there are classes in pottery, clay craft, calligraphy, and other creative courses. Check out these studios where you can sign up for your kid’s arts and crafts classes:

1. Abrakadoodle

Abrakadoodle is an internationally established studio with four locations in Singapore alone. It’s also one of those rare art schools that accept toddlers from the age of 20 months. Indeed, it’s certainly never too early to hone your kid’s artistic talents. They also offer toddler, elementary, and preschool art classes.

The studio is primarily known for “process art”, where kids learn best when they can take creative exploration into their own hands and make their ideas come to life. They also advocate art safety and use only Crayola, a certified non-toxic art products brand, exclusively in their classes.

If one could make a living making and sharing memes, Justine would have done so and with utter relish. But alas, no such job exists (at least to her knowledge), so here she is, digging the deep trenches of the Internet to back up the words she strings for posterity and public service. Her current passion for memes is relegated to pastime status, but she hopes that one day, she can sit back with a dirty martini and scroll and share memes like a beast without having to worry about next month's rent.
