What has Boon Yee learned from his Arts class

In our home, Boon Kang (no 2) is always the most creative.
He loves painting as it allows him to express his imagination and thoughts.

But we heard from heART Studio that Arts do not only improved a child’s artistic skills and passion, Arts encouraged a child to focus and be patient too.

We decided to send Boon Yee (No 3) to attend heART Studio’s curriculum.
Boy was a little hesitant, I can imagined his inertia.

Boon Yee is a very active boy and he will be the first one to volunteer for soccer or basketball curriculum, but he might struggle to sit down for extended period of time :p

Drawing and painting is not exactly his comfort zone.

From scratching to outlining to different tones of colours and even shading.
Everything has a sequence. Kids are sometimes impatient, and they might skip some steps after losing focus.

Boon Yee has already finished one term, and from his weekly assessment, Teacher Erma can already see some improvement. I do notice he is fidgeting less in class now (haha).

I asked Boon Yee what he likes about Heart Studio so far.

1) Teacher is kind and polite. He is referring to Teacher Erma.
Whenever Boon Yee has problem focusing, Teacher Erma will patiently guide him to finish his assignment.

2) He is looking forward to more art classes. Boon Yee is confident that his arts passion will be improved further with teacher’s guidance. He is always eager to “showoff” his artwork to me and Mommy ๐Ÿ™‚

3) He loves to see his cartoon characters comes to life, from scratching, outlining and putting the finishing touches. Spongebob, Star Wars’ BB-8.

Boon Yee has a lot of freedom to decide the backdrop, colours to his art work. His artwork can be as abstract as he wanted.

Weeks after weeks, we see Boon Yee completing more “masterpieces” from his arts class.
Boon Yee is now paying more attention to his artwork and in class.

Through Arts, he is slowly but surely molding his own character.

From a whiteboard, kids choose their desired cartoon, and teachers will draw out the outline. Teacher Erma and Jay (not in photo) are passionate, and kids really enjoy their sessions.

Alvin for him and Alvin for her.

It is not easy to paint Alvin, especially his face. Kids find it tough to apply tones to different part of Chipmunk’s face. Proud of the kids’ achievement, they finished their masterpiece with a lot of encouragement from teachers.

The older kids’ classes stretches over three hours (school holiday specials), giving me a lot of time to browse Heart Studio’s gallery. Stormtrooper looks pretty cool!

Love the drawing of Singapore’s skyline. Never mind if Merlion is at wrong location, Arts is all about expression and creativity.

Round 2 for Boon Kang, “Plants and Zombie”. He wanted Starwars’ Bobafett initially, but my schedule crashed. We slot him into Plant and Zombie workshop ๐Ÿ™‚

Boon Kang’s Zombie has fused with a pirate. His Zombie is not scary at all, and he told me his Zombie is one of the higher-ranked Walking Dead (in the game).

I thought the parrot looks very abstract and has a 3D feel.

Of all our kids, Boon Kang is the most creative and patient. The other boys are restless and more into sports. He always look forward to more Heart Studio workshops ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for the Fun invite, Heart Studio!
