At award-winning Muzart Learning Centre, art instruction for kids is on a-whole-nother level.
Established with the mission of imparting professional art education to children, Muzart Learning Centre aims to redefine the process of learning art. Explore its holistic and heuristic curriculum that is not only based on research, but encourages imaginative productivity, creative thinking and teaches students to be confident through expressing their art.
Muzart prides itself on its Heuristic Learning Method, where students learn through exploration instead of focusing on the “results” or outcome of an art piece. The process focuses on developing a student’s confidence, emotional intelligence, thinking and cognitive skills – all crucial during a child’s developmental years.
“Art allows children to explore freely and use their own imagination during the art-making journey, which helps to build their confidence throughout the process,” shares Lynn Teo, co-founder and director at Muzart Learning Centre. To maintain consistency, its dedicated team of researchers continually refine the programmes to ensure a standard of excellence in art education.
Students are also encouraged to collaborate frequently with their peers to help heighten their self-awareness, enhance their selfesteem and problem-solve through experimental learning as a group. “When children get together to do art, it is a given that there will be a little bit of healthy competition. This promotes dedication, allows children to assess their mistakes by looking at the works or art pieces of other kids,” explains Lynn. “From there, they learn to do it better the next time and, at times, seek help on how to do it better.” Since 2017, its successful art programme has not only won multiple education awards, but has helped more than 30,000 students develop their skills through art!
Not only are Muzart’s classes led by engaging teachers in a safe and nurturing environment, they are kept intentionally small: The teacher-to-student ratio is 1:8. Likewise, its weekly 90-minute lessons allow for more care and attention towards each student, while giving them space to explore their personal creativity.
Headquartered in Jurong, Muzart Learning Centre has eight other centres around Singapore (in Tampines, Yishun, West Coast, Bukit Timah, Hougang, East Coast, Ang Mo Kio and Serangoon). Find out more about its unique programmes for all its centres on the website below.
