"Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art."
- Andy Warhol

The idea of owning a dog is more fun than imagination, but not everyone has the fortune to actually own one. This course is for all who want to own a dog but don’t have one, for those who are afraid of real dogs but adore their looks, and for owners who love their dogs to bits but don’t know where to begin their sketches. We will focus on fundamental sketching techniques, looking into proportion, how to express textures, understand the animal like a scientist as well as an artist, and utilise our skills to design and sketch a product for our beloved pet!

This 10-session series is perfect for 9- —to 16-year-olds who are seeking challenges! You are fearless and not afraid of doing hard things. Each 80-minute session is filled with art history, heated discussion, pencil techniques, and pushing yourself to create artwork to your limits!

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.
