Did you know? Out of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen is the most scientific room of all? The Kitchen, ingredient, you, me and science! Learn about atoms, molecules, solids, liquids, gases and more with the help of your clever pencils! We are heading to the kitchen and sketching anything and everything delicious and scientific. Who says you can’t dabble in food, art and science- your dream has come true! Join us in the 10-session series as we venture through the kitchen cupboard, stove, pencils and rubbers. Don’t worry, no explosives involved!

Throughout the series, you will have the opportunity to sketch 5 to 8 pieces depending on your skill level and attendance. This art learning journey is perfect for independent young minds aged between 8-14 years old, who are eager to learn more. Each 60-minute session is packed with exciting new learning content and opportunities to explore beyond the lesson. Parents do not need to attend the class. If you are enrolled for the full term, you will have complete access to the course content. However, materials are not included, so please bring your own sketch set. Starter packs are available for purchase online or in person at the Studio.

Frequently asked questions
FAQ 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.
FAQ 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.
FAQ 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.
FAQ 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.
