Holistic development

Encourage your children to unleash their creativity, pick up a new skill and live mindfully. 

Canvas Ark

Canvas Ark

Art is a good avenue for kids to express their emotions and ideas, nurture their creativity and explore the world around them. It also helps them develop physically and cognitively, since art makes use of fine motor skills such as hand-eye coordination and encourages problem solving and decision making. 

Canvas Ark programmes are designed for children aged four and older, and are led by a team of trained visual art instructors, focusing on the 7 Artistic Processes: Inspiration, Imagination, Emotion, Expression, Experimentation, Materiality and Presentation.
