Junior Artist. 5 – 7 years old
We offer Children’s Art Enrichment programs for kids 5-7 years old.
The JUNIOR ARTIST Program is a complete and systematic program designed to encourage students to develop their artistic skills, broaden their creative thinking. Our system deals with bringing out creative talent in children. Anyone can “draw” a picture by copying from a given sample, but our syllabus is designed to gradually install visualization, comprehension, and experimentation with the subjects, backgrounds, colors, and overall composition of completed artwork.
We offer a series of paintings, art drawings, and handicraft programs. Established in the year 1995, HIGH TIDE ART SCHOOL learning methodology and creative art enrichment programs have been “run” and has proved that it is effective.
