Who said oil paintings only exit between the four walls of an art gallery? Or long and tedious, your soul would cry out of breath? Join us in this series of the workshop as we gather together, inspired by Harry Potter and his world, and celebrate together creativity that transcends all great stories, colours that dance on your canvas, and brushstrokes that are so mesmerising and captivating, you’ll in love in this traditional yet innovative medium. Transform how you see contemporary cultures and understand the connections between the old classics and new ideas. Create pieces that adorn your walls, but continue to inspire you time after time as you walk past them wherever they are being honoured and displayed.
During our 8 to 10 sessions, depending on the day of your lesson, you will create 3 to 4 paintings that take you to the next level of creative thinking. Learn new brush techniques, how to set up a workspace that makes you- the artist, more effective, and most of all, how to convey your inspirational ideas to pieces that bring joy to your audience.
This weekly workshop is 120-minute-long, designed for 8 to 16 years old, beginner, intermediate and advanced artists alike. You will learn art history and literacy as we introduce an artist and their artwork every session. At the end of this course, students are expected to create 3 to 5 finished oil paintings, depending on their age, skill level and attendance.
Parents' company is not needed for artists at this level. All course content is included for students enrolled in this course. Please bring your own painting set. If you are new, please order your starter pack here at

Frequently asked questions
1 What happens if I miss a class?
If you feel sick, please stay home and apply a catch-up lesson at a later time. Or, if you feel well enough, please join your session online via our app or this website. Regrettably, we can only provide catch-up lessons within your enrolled term based on availability. Any unused credit cannot be carried over to the following term.
2 What's your refund policy in a nutshell?
For the fairness of the other students, for our clever tutors who provide the lessons that you love, the studio cannot offer a refund if you change your mind. Our in-studio workshops are strictly made up of the limited number of students enrolled before the start of each school term and have the appropriate resources allocated to accommodate the optimal learning experience for all students in the course. To ensure the staff and supplies can be maintained for the course, payment for their use cannot be refunded so that the remaining students may continue the learning and development they paid for. In the event of Covid-19 restrictions, workshops will resume online. No refund can be issued if you decide not to participate in online sessions.
3 What do I need to bring to class?
If you are joining the workshop in person, just bring your lovely self! Please bring your own art pack for Clever Canvas™, Sketchbook Challenge™ and Super Matisse™ lessons. If you are joining online, great! Ensure your device is fully charged, and check with your tutor beforehand about what supplies you may need to prepare.
4 Which class should I join?
Choosing a class that suits your age group would be a great way to start. Your tutor will advise you if moving up or down a level may be more beneficial for your child. Check out the 'Find My Workshop' page for more details.
