Artventure Programme

The Essential Elements of Visual Arts Short Term Programme, by DAS ArtVenture, is targetted at Primary 1-3 students. The programme aims to develop the students' range of skills and processes such as problem solving, simple drawing, and mixed media techniques. It develops the students' basic drawing knowledge through hands-on learning of lines, shapes and forms. Students will be exposed to a series of simple objects, animals and human subjects. Students will produce a series of artworks in this 10 weeks programme.




The Artventure Short Term Programme is designed to create an opportunity for students to learn and explore various art forms and art techniques. At the same time, it aims to help students build their cognitive skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking and concept development. Students will be encouraged to express their ideas, imaginations and creativity through sharing sessions in class (both formal and informal). Through this exposure and practices, we hope to enhance their self-awareness and self-confidence.


The Artventure Short Term Programme consists of 10 sessions, 90 minutes each. Each session will be planned to cover the areas shown below:

Learn Art Techniques Students to experiment with colours, form, line, shape, texture and value. An opportunity to explore a variety of creative art materials such as charcoal, oil pastels, watercolour, clay etc. This would
Explore Art Forms and Styles Students to explore art through both 2D and 3D. For example, painting, sculpting, drawing, collage, paper and fabric art, mosaics, and styles like Pop Art to Pointillism.
Discover Artists of the Past and the Present Students will learn about the art of classic artists such as Picasso and Rembrandt as well as contemporary artists such as wildlist artist Mort Solbert and Japanese artist who just had her exhibition here recently in the National Gallery Singapore, Yayoi Kusama.
Develop and Enhance Cognitive and Communication Skills Our art lessons help students build cognitive skills such as concept development, problem-solving, language, history, measurement, critical thinking, fine motor development and many other skills that can contribute to school success. In addition, students will be given a conducive environment to communicate their creative thoughts through their Artworks (to present and explain their artworks to their classmates and instructor).
Create self-awareness and Self-confidence Students make use of their imaginations to express ideas and originality through thought experiments and create unique artworks. These would help to develop self-confidence as their creativity soars.
