What our learners say  

The online lessons are great! Tutor's instructions were very clear and straightforward, I must recommend it to our friends. Also it's very fun. Really, the lessons are so different online, and the way AJ Studio does it is truly thoughtful, respect to you all.

One and a half term of oil painting lessons, I feel **** has improved a lot. From when she first started not even able to paint neatly, to rows of finished artworks on the wall in our garage, looking forward to send you a photo of them all at the end of this term!

Frequently asked questions

What do we need to bring?
Your basic art supplies. We recommend a sketchbook, a set of pencils and a rubber as a basic starter. If you need more clarification, check out our studio store.
How about drop-off and pick-up?
Please purchase your own tickets before the event and make your way to our gathering. And do not leave your child/ren until you see the tutors. Parents are welcome to tag along with the group. Please pick up your child/ren on time according to the event plan. Any late pick-ups will incur $15 every 20 minutes to cover the tutor's time.
What happens if we miss this event?
As these are one-off events, there's no refund for no-shows. However, in the event of severe weather changes, your fee will be refunded in full or transferred to the next event, whichever you prefer. You'll be notified via email and/or text message before 7 am on the day.
Important safety information
Please help your child to remember your mobile number. Tutors will show them where the reception is. If they are lost, they will need to go to reception and ask a staff member to help them call you. We will also contact you via the contact numbers you provided immediately. So please tell your child to stay with the group, and let their tutors know if they need to go to the bathroom, so one of the tutors can go with your child/ren, and everyone else can wait for them.
Anything else?
Bring a drink bottle and some small snacks. Drawing on location can be draining. Try to bring everything in ONE backpack. This ensures you have two hands-frees for that important task- art making! And yes, sunscreen and a sunhat too! A sweaty artist will never be a patient artist!
