Art has traditionally been an important part of early childhood programs. Many scholars have identified that young children should be involved in both making their own art work and appreciating the art creation of others - such a process is important for children’s whole development.

 

In our visual art programme, we draw attention to both technique and creativity, with our main emphasis put on creation. Our goal is to provide a space where children's ideas and artistic senses will be nurtured while they explore different topics and media. We insist on hiring qualified art tutors to ensure teaching quality as well as learning quality.

The Centre is also committed to providing platforms to our students where they can experience art creation and appreciate the artwork of others. These platforms, including exhibitions and various competitions, help children develop confidence in their abilities in addition to creating and appreciating art.

It is always a pleasurable and enjoyable experience for children to make art. We believe that allowing young children to start painting, colouring, and making crafts at an early age stimulates children's artistic senses and right-brain development as well as their imagination and creativity. By planting the seeds of art in their little minds, their aesthetic abilities and personal tastes are both encouraged and cultivated.
