Art Classes for Kids in Singapore:
Pei-Per Arts School
Pei-Per Arts School offers unique Mandarin-English bilingual art and craft classes that integrate STEM elements for children aged 3.5 to 8 years old. Unlike a traditional art class that teaches kids the step-by-step method of creating a masterpiece, Pei-Per Arts School’s holistic classes begin with a Mandarin storytelling session that inspires creativity through stories and introduces diverse cultures. Because art is all about thinking outside of the box, kids get to experience hands-on creative crafting and unique art experiences to foster critical thinking. This unique bilingual approach not only gives kids a chance to learn new skills but also to discover how the beauty of Mandarin and culture can inspire art. To teach kids all about sustainability, they up-cycle by transforming every day’s discarded materials into innovative art projects and increase environmental awareness in their unique craft workshops. Sign up for a two-lesson trial class for only $80 and buy a 12-lesson package for $500.
Pei-Per Arts School, 318 Tanglin Rd, #01-53, Singapore 247979, Tel: (+65) 8854 3494
Not sure if your child will enjoy an art class? Why not sign up for a non-obligatory art trial class ($58 for 1 class, $120 for 3 classes) at Abrakadoodle? Founded in the US, Abrakadoodle provides an engaging creative environment that gives kids the freedom to express themselves through art and to inspire their inner Picasso! The art instructors embrace “process art”, which simply means prioritizing the creative process, rather than the outcome, allowing kids to develop a love of art through exploration and hands-on innovation. They’ll get to learn about different artists and their art styles and will be exposed to a variety of art materials and mediums. They also get to develop their confidence, by sharing their ideas and masterpieces, during gallery time! Plus if your child loves art, a birthday art package ($380) is a perfect way to celebrate (you don’t need to prep anything!) just let the kids unleash their creativity and take home their artwork for a memorable birthday event!
