Recommendation for children art course

Postby super_dad » Tue Sep 11, 2007 5:30 pm

Think my girl is fond of drawing. (like her dad). I am thinking of giving her a chance to try out a children art course. Any recommendations from all the kiasu parents here?

Actually, there's no better teacher than dad himself!

Anyway, I remember vaguely the Crestar centre which host the Yamaha Music Centre at Parkway Parade offers drawing classes other than ballet and music courses. Check out http://www.crestargroup.com/services_ep1.htm

If you want to be more serious, perhaps the courses offered by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts for Young Talents are suitable:

Hmm how old is your daughter..? I guess the type of classes depend on the age and how interested she is in art.

The commnunity centers also have some art classes for children

Had looked at NAFA art classes for my daughter aged 7. But there is a long waiting list. Any other recommendations from anybody?

The NAFA courses are definitely hot because NAFA is well branded and seen to be professionals for the job. Did you put yourself on the mailing list? They only send invititations to those on the list. Seems like they offer only in the November-December timeframe according to their website.

Anyway, here are some others I found. Don't know how good they are, though:

Unique Arts
Little Artists
KookyArt
Centre Stage

and here's a directory of some others without website:

My elder son has been drawing since he's 2.

My younger son is not dat good at drawing but he's quite good at cut & paste.

We have been on Nafa's emailing / waiting list but still no good news

we recently enrolled them in a painting class and are quite happy with the improvement.

I'm new here and currently having difficulties in locating an Art class for my 5 yr-old daughter. I'm residing in Jurong East Central area but I just couldn't get a complete listing of those centres located in that vicinity. :roll:

Could someone assist in providing me a list of centres providing such a course?

Many thanks.
