    Join us for our weekly drop-in Arts Classes. These run across both centres with Visual Arts offered at Joo Chiat and Trio, and Dance offered only at our TRIO location. Students enjoy these sessions in a mixed age group format. We differentiate for age and ability and engage in themes and lesson structures that have a focus on techniques, skills, processes and concepts.

     

    A stand alone class is valued at $50. We love to see kids more than once however, so offer these amazing packages. They can be used flexibility across both locations and disciplines, and are for families, so can be shared by siblings and even parents :)
