Art isn’t boring – Fun Art Classes for Kids

By: Nika Tay Hui Min

What’s art without some fun? At Artpazionate, we take fun very seriously. If you thought art was just some plain old sit-down activity that makes scribbles with pencils and paintbrushes – well, think again! Our unique art classes for kids are here to show you that “Art isn’t boring!”

Here at Artpazionate, we pride ourselves in teaching and doing art (quite frankly) out-of-the-box. One of the ways we inject creativity and life into our lessons is to go beyond the usual ‘brush-and-canvas’ format, and push the boundaries of what art should look like.

First, let us introduce some of the exciting things we offer in our art classes.

Acrylic Painting

Acrylic paint is an incredibly versatile and beginner-friendly medium. In fact, acrylic paints are so versatile they can be used on a wide range of surfaces – from wood, glass to canvas – which makes it so fun for your kids to explore a variety of painting techniques. The fast-drying paint also makes it easy for children to work and play with.

Due to its’ relatively thicker consistency, Acrylic paint gives children the flexibility to experiment beyond the usual paintbrushes. Allowing them to get creative in utilizing their fingers, hands, and even sponges to create different textures as well as strokes for a truly special and vibrant piece of artwork!

What makes acrylic painting such a great medium? It offers many ‘types’ of paintings!

Our art classes for kids will be sure to broaden your child’s learning as we dive into various modern and innovative art styles! For all our mini ‘Pablo Picassos’; this art style (pictured below), also known as Cubism, was invented around 1907-08. It will inspire your child to reimagine their world using geometric shapes!

Air-dry Clay making

Clay is another wonderful medium that serves as a great introduction to 3-dimensional (3D) art. Its soft yet malleable texture makes it fun while stimulating and engaging your child’s creativity through touch. They can pinch, mold, roll, flatten, stretch, decorate, build and make their very own 3D artwork from scratch!

Check out the special “World in the Box” where our young artists recreated their imaginary world with clay and paint! At Artpazionate, we are always encouraging our students to explore art in unique ways while nurturing their boldness to create and imagine.

Paper Crafts and Collages

While art is traditionally associated with paintings, paper is another resourceful and adaptable material. From collage-making to origami, the possibilities with paper are endless! And our art classes for kids do just that – we open your child’s mind and imagination to new possibilities through art!

What’s more, paper-medium artworks are great for developing your child’s fine-motor skills and awareness of color! While also being an incredibly accessible and affordable material – so really, what’s not to love!
