While I was browsing through a free magazine for the community of Seremban, I saw an advertisement on a newly operated art school. It was just a few minutes drive away from our home. This time, I intended to include XJ since she already attended school. I quickly call the art center to find out more details. The timing are suitable for us and the fees are quite reasonable. Now, I need to pass the test on both YX and XJ. If they refuse to attend the art class, I will have to give up the hope.
After work, I talked to both kids. I asked if they are interested to attend art classes, a totally new art class from the previous one which YX attended. To my delights, both seems interested. I called the teacher again in the evening on the same day to double confirmed on the timing and said both my kids are interested. The next day (11 May 2012), they started their 1st lesson ! ( I planned to let them start the lesson in June but the teacher said they can start almost immediately, so I agreed ).
|Happy mood attending their 1st lesson.|
~ more organized and have a standard teaching guidelines. Click here for more info.
~ Each class have a maximum of 10 students as the teacher does not want to have a big group which will make the learning difficult.
For both YX & XJ, we choose the Friday class (the only time suitable for us) and it was a blessing because currently, the teacher only teaches them both. A private tutor !~ This center have a few franchises around Malaysia, especially in Perak state. I believe, the center origin is from Perak.
~ Besides than drawing, the center offers art & crafts too but we did not enroll the kids for it. We shall see later.
~ Each lessons took 2 hours.
~ Fees are based on per 8 hours course (which equivalent to 4 lessons) and not those standard per month basis.
If we are not available on a particular Friday, we can attend the class on the following Friday. Once we used up the 8 hours, we will have to pay the next fees. Currently, fees at RM 50 per child.
~ The center are operates during Public Holidays as well.
~ The teacher teaches the kids on cleanliness too.
After the class, teacher make sure they wash their hands.
~ Teacher does not rush in the teaching.
Teacher started with colour pencils and when they are good in the toning, teacher will proceed with oil painting, then water colours and the final, a combination of oil and water painting.
So do the kids enjoyed themselves on their first day ? Yes, they did !
During the class, teacher make sure the kids drink their water and goes to the toilet too (this was what YX told me).
I'm looking forward for every Friday now so we can sent the kids for art class while hubby and I can have our Me time ! for at least 2 hours.
