Here at the DAS, all our creative instructors follow the OG principles in our delivery of lessons. It has proven to help students with dyslexia learn better. On top of learning the various art forms and art techniques, our lessons will also help to build the students’ cognitive skills as well as their self-confidence. In addition, having students to work on a small art project we aim to help them prepare for building a portfolio in future.

Students will be introduced to various art medium, techniques and art forms. We will be covering both 2- and 3-dimensional art forms, from acrylic and oil painting to sculpturing. Students will also learn about classic artists like Pablo Picasso to contemporary artists such as Yoyoi Kusama who recently exhibited her work in The National Gallery Singapore. Guidance will be given to students on how to transform their creative thought processes into artworks.

The Artventure Short Term Programme in Term 2 is designed to create an opportunity for students to learn and explore various art forms and art techniques. At the same time, it aims to help students build their cognitive skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking and concept development. Students will be encouraged to express their ideas, imaginations and creativity through sharing sessions in class (both formal and informal). Through this exposure and practices, we hope to enhance their self-awareness and self-confidence.
