Artz Graine Studio



It's all go at buzzy Artz Graine Studio, a hive of activity where boys and girls are busy taking part in a range of 3- or 1.5-hour creative workshops to kickstart the June holidays. Involving a variety of art forms, materials and skills, the practical workshops enable 3 – 12-year olds to hone their artistic talents.

Founded in 2009 by passionate art educators Jace Ng and Monica Yip with a motto “every individual has a hidden talent waiting to unfold”, Artz Graine was way ahead of the trend for offering students holistic development and growth through Visual Arts. It’s fair to say that Jace Ng and her team of experienced art teachers transformed this studio into one of the most highly desirable children’s art schools in Singapore. The results are phenomenal, with the majority of leavers going to niche art schools.

Meanwhile, the studio’s holiday workshops are given equal weighting and attracting lots of local youngsters. During the June holiday workshops, the young artists will make use of the studio’s excellent facilities to produce challenging modern artworks. Five workshops on offer will introduce your kids to a range of practices that link traditional techniques with alternative media. Different themes run almost every day, so your kids can come back several times during the holidays without ever getting bored.
