Things to Do This Weekend for Your Kids | February 29 – March 6, 2020

Kids have an innate curiosity that helps them create and explore many things about the world that are unfamiliar to them. Here are 5 things to do this weekend for them to hone this skill! 

Easy Cartoon Drawing Workshop for Young Kids | March 1, 2020

Things to do this weekend

Let your child explore and learn how to draw cartoon characters in a simple and fun way! This is especially perfect for those kids starting out to explore their interest in visual arts. As parents, it’s essential that we take special attention to what our kids like and dislike so that we can help them develop them into potential skills in the future. In this instance, drawing is a skill that they can use as they grow up while also being able to enjoy their passion! 

This workshop is spearheaded by Chen Yanfei, a digital painter and artist who specialises in animation backgrounds. Since seven years of age, she developed an immense passion for Japanese Anime/Manga. The culture and industry has been her source of inspiration ever since. To realize her dream of contributing to the Japanese Anime industry, she made the decision to move to Japan to further her studies. 

Since then, she had developed herself as an artist further. Her works include contributions to various anime movies, series and mobile game apps such as Lupin VS Conan Movie, 2015 Conan Movie, 2017 Genocidal Organ Movie, One Piece, Pretty Cure (from Dokidoki series onwards), Orange, Young Black Jack, and iPhone app like Aichu, etc.

At this workshop, materials will already be provided for you so you don’t have to worry about buying and bringing any more drawing materials. Come and give your child the opportunity to be creative and explore the different facets of their interests!

Art can be expressed through a wide variety of medium aside from pens and papers. The Creative Kids Art Immersion Trial takes on a unique approach to introducing the wonders of art. The course will encourage kids to think out of the norm as they guide them through various themes such as the arts, sciences, geography, and literally anything! The different mediums they will be able to work with include jumping clay, drawing and colour pencils, crayons, markers, acrylic paint, and multi-media collage. 

Visual Arts Centre – Art Studio, the organiser of this workshop, is a professional art school offering a variety of professional art courses, tailored to your level of experience and requirements. Art courses and workshops are conducted by professional artists and follow an academic art teaching structure. Following a rigorous curriculum, students will acquire the skills and techniques of drawing and painting, and be able to compose their own masterpiece to bring home in a relatively short period of time. Besides providing art instruction and demonstration, our professional art trainers focus on guiding students to achieve their personal artistic goals and art style. Their art courses include: Drawing and Sketching, Oil Painting, Creative Acrylic Painting, Workshops and Tailored Courses.

Children are very creative especially at such a young age when they have yet to explore many things about the world. It’s important to set an environment that doesn’t inhibit their freedom to explore and create whatever they can come up with. This workshop will provide a stimulating environment that encourages creativity and promotes individuality.

Through using Apple products, such as the iPad, kids will be given the opportunity to learn fun ways to create their own emoji! We always see them in social media sites, text messages, and even on advertisements. We also use them when we message other people to show how we feel in a much apparent and better way aside from words. With this Art Lab for Kids by Apple, your kids can create their own! They’ll be shown how to draw colorful faces and objects depending on what kind of emotion or character they want to portray. Don’t worry about bringing your own iPad or if you don’t have one. The workshop will provide the devices for you and your kid to use! Even better, the outputs they will come up with can be used and taken home so it’s not just a one-time use!
