Amy has a strong passion in art and craft since she was young.

Her work was exhibited in the Lantern Festival and Auckland Museum. Amy is always busy with an art project in the weekends!
Like Pablo Piccaso says, 'Every child is an artist.' Our goal is for children to learn a range of painting techniques, explore different types of art and experiment with various painting styles while enjoying themselves. There is a specific learning focus for each lesson. Children will study about the renowned artists and explore about the techniques and styles. They will also be investigating the characteristics of various cultural art to broaden their horizon. Painting is a great way to improve a child's focus, mindfulness and patience. It is essential for them to have the art skills in order to develop this into a life-long interest.
We aim to maintain good communications with the parents. Our blog and Facebook page will be updated on a regular basis for parents to check out our latest projects!
