Heart Studio - Review (II)

Juboy ended his 10 weeks art lessons with Heart Studio. We shared the journey of his first 4 lessons in the previous post, where he drew a fruit bowl using different colouring mediums - colour pencils and paint. 

Subsequent lessons, he completed artworks of drawing and colouring various jellyfishes, and according to him, he said he drew a dragon! Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. I think his dragon is really cool. Along the weeks, I could tell that his pencil and colouring coordination skills improved tremendously. He used to dislike colouring, which is a fair understanding, especially when the area to be coloured is really huge. Recently, I spotted him taking colouring books to colour patiently when he's home. Practice surely makes it perfect. 


Cool Dragon

Every artwork begins with drawing and colouring with colour pencils. Then the same drawing will be replicated, and brush painted with water colour or acrylic. It was good that he got to try the different mediums on his various art pieces. With that, he has also learnt some brush painting skills during art lessons. He was taught the various brush positions when painting, how using a sleeping or standing brush gives different draw strokes. As well as how to properly clean his brushes with these various brush positions. That helped him clean his brushes really well after each colour. Being the playful little boy at home, I am really amazed at how well he followed instructions.  

Cleaning his brush

Juboy was also taught how to do simple highlight to his drawings. In one of his drawings, he was asked where does he wants light to be shining from. From there, he was guided to do a highlight on his drawing. It was a rather impressive detail for a 4 year old.

And here's a cute secret. For doing his lesson right smack at 3pm on a weekend, he fell asleep while painting his dragon. It was a day that he refused to nap. His angelic teacher gave him a few minutes to hibernate, which I thought was really a nice gift of time for this tired preschooler.

Juboy really loves his art classes. No cries, no stress and no tug of wars when we shooed him off to class. Occasional tantrums, but all sorted out once lesson begin. I'm glad how the fun and engaging lessons kept his interest ongoing. It definitely helped that his teacher was extremely patient and encouraging. Love too, that his art pieces are also nicely presented and kept in a huge booklet.

Art Portfolio

Apart from his art progression, the best part was always hearing how he enthusiastically shared about what he drew after each lesson. More than just asking what he drew, I extended the conversation by asking about his colour choices, what part of the dragon this was and every detail I could find! It was always some good conversations for us.  

We have TWO slots of Paper Tearing Landscape workshop (worth $85 each) to giveaway to TWO readers! This workshop is a unique approach of using paper to create landscape artwork. It elevates the creativity of our little ones to another level, guiding them in the technique of blending and exposure to colour combinations. The objective is to teach children to transpose what they see and break it down into layers, to enhance their understanding of composition and depths using the stenciling method through an organic approach. Workshop is suitable for 3 year old and above.

Sounds cool? I'm excited that Juboy will be in for this workshop too. Join the giveaway on our Facebook post and Instagram post. You may try your chances on both platforms. But first, ensure that you can make it on the following date and time, if you win.
