What art class is about?

“At Artgrain, we believe in providing quality art education for all students to gain mastery in art making, to nurture their creative potential and to cultivate a community of artists & art lovers.”

We passionately believe asethetic experiences and enjoyment of the arts is an integral part of a rich and fulfilling life. Our mission is to cultivate this sensitivity and the ability to create art and to enjoy art to all children and adults.

An art education is essential and necessary as the process in art is unique and enlarges the capacity of each individual very differently from other discipline.

Learning through ‘Seeing’
At Art Grain, we recognised the uniqueness in each child and the worldview that they have. We cherish their ideas and thoughts.  Our art educators will guide the child to complete each task and to challenge them to try new things.

We believe in demonstrating the skills of art-making to our students so that they can truly grasp the learning process. Developing the keenness and ability to observe and to visually articulate these observations is also one of our emphases in the learning of art.

Our module is designed so that learning art is enjoyable and accessible to all; we adopt a smaller teacher-to-students ratio in order to meet the needs of every child.

Testimonials

“I like coming to class because I spend all my time doing  and learning about art. In school, we only get to do art sometimes and only when we are well-behaved. Here, me and my sister get to learn more art styles than in school and we have the freedom to express our creativity.”

Ethel Chong, 6 years old

“I draw a lot at home and mummy thinks I should come for art class to improve my drawing and painting.  I love coming to Artgrain because I get to do art with my classmates who are also my friends.”

Evan Hsu, 5 years old

“My oldest child, Charlotte, has been with Artgrain since its inception in 2010 and my younger child, Olivia joined her sister soon after when she turned 3 years old. As a parent, I saw my children make leaps and bounds in their ability to draw and paint. They have developed self-confidence and a strong foundation and continue to impress me with the techniques they showcase in their own artworks at home. My children enjoy art classes here as the teachers are patient and helpful. They also look forward to  the company of other like-minded children. As they continue to develop their talent and armed with the skills they have learnt, I hope to see them bloom as individual artists with their own defined style.”
