CHILDREN’S CLASSES

MOVEMENT, ART, MINDFULNESS (Children 4-9 and 9-14 years old)

This class combines art, story-telling and movement exercises alongside a creative art medium to engage both body and mind. They’ll be encouraged to stretch and sketch freely to hone one’s non-verbal skills and bring about inner balance and self-awareness. A progress report is provided after the first class to highlight initial observations and thereafter monthly (or however often they’re given).

PORTFOLIO BUILDING (Children 5-12 years old)

Nurture your child’s own self-expression within an artist-led environment through the exploration of multi-disciplinary artist mediums and tools. A progress report is provided after the first class to highlight initial observations and thereafter monthly (or however often they’re given).

HOLISTIC CAMPS

A 5-DAY PERSONALISED PROGRAMME ON MOVEMENT, ART AND MINDFULNESS 

Holistic Camps has been an integral part of our children’s curriculum since 2003.

Our holistic camp is designed as a personalised journey with an exclusive number of 7 children in each group. This camp harmoniously integrate: creativity + wellness + joy into your child’s holiday itinerary.

We will be exploring colours, patterns and texture with art – explore painting with all kinds of art materials and using nature for our brushes, finding the sea and sky through sounds of singing bowls, and exciting movement and mindfulness with our bodies and minds.

Follow your child’s interests, and cultivate your child’s strengths. At the end of the 5 days camp, join us for a tea and chat, through a mini-art exhibition and sharing by the children!

Canvass semi-private holistic camp offers a creative and nurturing experience with the following core activities that will entice your child’s learning interest, awaken joy and cultivate intrinsic values.

This holistic camp holds a maximum intake of 7 children in each group, and welcomes friends and siblings together in this empowering and inspiring journey. 

THE CORE CURRICULUM: 

Art & Crafts – Participation in Eco and Upcycling art as well as general arts allow children to express their creativity during camp.

Circle Time – Each day, all campers meet to go over the daily schedule, play short warm-up games, and share anything that may be on their mind. 

Herbalism – Children explore the healing usage of edible flowers, fruits, spices and herbs to concoct herbal fruit teas.

Intuitive Development – Intuitive Development includes creative movement for body awareness. Movement with dance helps the children develop intuitive abilities when relating to themselves or others. We work with visualizations, sharing walks in nature, meditation, and fun journeys. Educating them about bodywork like massage with aromatherapy, the meaning of chakras, and other energy work is part of developing tools for self-care and self-awareness. Self-expression with various themes for drawing and painting their visualizations, creating mandalas with a story and meaning together is all part of the intuitive process. Group activities help raise their consciousness for listening to others and weighing their understanding of how to listen and be respectful to one another. Ceremonies and other rituals that correlate specifically to the culture of the week, will help stimulate their imaginations and educate them about the world and our environment.

Yoga – Each day, children are guided through yoga exercises to energize and relax their mind and body.
