ABOUT THE STUDIO

The Drawing Mint is a children's art studio that uses the application of visual arts as a tool to create and re-create meaning in multiple perspectives. The space is inspired with a charm and a sense of coziness. A studio learning environment that feels secure, familiar and of comfort.

 

“The Drawing Mint” is derived from the idea of going beyond "drawing"  – using lines, strokes, shapes or symbols, to draw. It is also a metaphoric idea of “drawing”(inviting) thoughts of curiosity out from a child’s daily life where he draws inspiration from. The child infuses the fresh "mint" of ideas, innovation and creativity into his art by re-visiting, re-constructing and re-inventing, – the work that reflects his life continually.

 

 

our values

 

We believe each child's experience is special.

We see each child as an individual full of ideas waiting to unfold. 

We value the words and actions of each child. We are effective models of lifelong learning as we learn alongside your child. 

We support the learning process and challenge each child to play an active role.

We cultivate your child to honour and respect their work and work of others.

We provide various authentic tools/materials to help your child present his ideas into pieces of visual artwork or stories.

We use the environment, culture and the individual child's experiences as subject tools. 

Our space authentically mirrors everyday life through a homely environment. 

We aim to set up a small community for your child to socialise, share and grow in his learning journey together with others.
