Art Venture

BG Academy offers individuals of all age who are curious and passionate about the arts to immerse themselves in different facets of art, craft, animation universe. From learning the color theory, interactive live painting sessions, to pencil drawing, sketching and perspective design to Lego movie making, our sessions will bring out the artist in everyone!

Studio 1 (beginners)

Starting with combinations of a few lines and shapes to make simple pictures, beginners develop their confidence to take on more complex subjects. From early classes basic portraiture skills and colouring techniques are learned, using coloured pencil. Moving on, eager artists practice newly learned skills on more complex subjects and themes, such as animals, landscapes, human form and cartooning. We will also offer craft with recycle materials. Students will also be introduced to Lego movie animation making.

Classes happen every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 8 Weeks per semester.

Studio 2 (intermediate)

Throughout various activities, students are taught more advanced techniques to embellish their artwork. This includes basic to intermediate knowledge of shading, colour transition, colour-wheel, proportions, and texture. All these aspects are a stepping stone to applying the previously learned techniques in other media.

While exploring new media, for example oil pastel, watercolour, collage and crafts, budding artists are often given free range as to the subject of their artwork. This allows for the development of creativity and imagination. Through this exploration, students are given collective and individual instruction to teach them more complex artistic aspects, like movement, composition, depth, and even ways to enhance their creativity.

Classes happen every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 8 Weeks.

TIME OPTIONS (EST): 09:15am – 10:15am (Morning Classes) or 5:45pm – 6:45pm (Afternoon Classes)

Studio 3 (advanced)

In those more advanced classes, the children learn in detail about three-dimensional objects. Still-life and perspective projects use all previously learned techniques, while presenting some new challenges. Continuous projects of increasing difficulty level encourage children to practise skills and hone their creativity. 

Classes happen every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for 8 Weeks.
