Abrakadoodle Programs

A typical class starts with introduction. We show the Art Sample for the week’s art work and talk about the Artist of the Week. This would involve history, artist’s style, techniques, world cultures, inspiration and so much more. During the class, the children use their imagination while using a wide variety of materials, such as paints, clay and more. This would usually depend on the weekly lesson’s plan. Children would clean up when they have completed their artwork and prepare for Gallery Time. This is their special moment to share with their parents/guardian about their artwork and what have inspired them to create the art piece. The children will walk away from the class with an appreciation of art or the specific artist and of course a stamp or a delicious biscuit!
We start from 20 mths to 12yrs old.
Our maximum class size is 10 for Twoosy and 12 kids for Mini and Doodlers Class (may be some differences on maximum class depending on the different studios)
• 1 Teacher for 8 Children for Twoosy classes (20 months – 3 years old)
• 1 Teacher to 8 Children for Mini Doodlers classes (3 – 5 years old)
• 1 Teacher : 10 Children for Doodlers classes ( 6 – 12 years old)
In Abrakadoodle class, we involve children in what is known as Process Art. We help children to explore, create and develop their own original ideas. We provide children with the inspiration, materials, guidance and tools to be creative. Each child creates original art work which is a reflection of his or her own personal interpretation and ideas.

Teachers and parents who respect children's ideas help them to learn to think and solve problems for themselves. Children who feel free to make mistakes and to explore will also feel free to invent, create and find new ways to do things.
The courses can be started anytime. Parents just need to bring their kids and introduce them to Abrakadoodle, it’s that easy!
We offer trial class at $55 per child. This is for first timer and non members only.

Common Questions

Our class term enrol continuously throughout the year and new students can join in anytime as long as the class is not full.
Your child can start anytime! As with anything, the sooner one starts something the sooner they begin to learn and benefit from the program.
Kids experiment with color, form, line, shape, texture and value and make use of such creative art materials as bamboo brushes, molding compounds, wire, oil pastels and more.

Kids explore art through painting, sculpting, drawing, collage, paper and fabric art, mosaics, anime, studio art and styles ranging from Pop Art to Pointillism and everything in between.

Kids learn about the art of classic artists such as Picasso and Rembrandt as well as contemporary artists such as wildlife artist Mort Solberg and food designer Lisa Cherkasky. Through our Artist of Distinction Program, kids learn about the many different ways working artists are creative.

Our art lessons help children build cognitive skills including concept development, problem solving, language, history, measurement, critical thinking, fine motor development and many other skills that can contribute to school success.
While the Twoosy’s explore art using a hands-on, sensory approach, parents learn about the skills their children are developing and what is developmentally appropriate.

Our teachers also help parents feel empowered to nurture their child’s creativity without stifling the all-important process of active discovery learning. At a stage when their learning is so keenly sensory driven, our little artists will be encouraged to freely explore the art materials and will learn “arty words” that relate to their lesson.

Because language development is also so important, our instructors teach by asking a lot of questions, such as: What color is that? What do you think will happen if we mix these two colors? We know that while language is developing, art is a wonderful way to help children express themselves. It helps children say things with and without words.

Parents are then able to assist (when needed) and encourage the child during the class. They can also practice and repeat the same artwork at home to experiment with art and create the same environment again at home.
Children at this age become more independent as teachers are now interacting more directly with them. Parental involvement is gradually decreased and the children exude pride and self-esteem as they are treated like “big kids."

The development of social skills is emphasized, as the Mini Doodlers become good listeners, follow directions, cooperate in a group, and learn more about themselves.

Children have different learning styles and respond individually in a structured class. Some adapt faster whereas others consider each move carefully and spend a lot of time watching. It may take a number of sessions before your child begins to get very actively involved. At Abrakadoodle, we encourage each child to join in at their own phase, and to encourage them to participate in the activities at their choice. They will gradually gain confidence to try most things with parent’s encouragement and our teacher’s guidance.
Adhoc class fee is $55 per class per child.

Though we emphasise on skills development and the need for routine for your child to develop their skills and confidence. We encourage your child to join the same class weekly to create a routine and bonding with their friends and teachers.
