A new addition to the 798 art district is the soon to be fully operational UCCA Creative Studio, a children’s art education center that is part of the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art Company Limited will offer art based education programs for children aged 2-11 years, a hosting venue for corporate and personal events and workshops . The programs will be in Chinese or English as specified by the studio.There will be three main components of the curriculum: Regular Classes, Creative Workshops and Discovery Area. Here are short descriptions of what will be offered:
Our weekly art classes provide children from 2 to 11 years old with sustained and progressive learning in the arts. Through education in both the technical and thematic components of art practice, children engage substantive issues, apply creative thinking, and focus on quality task performance. The program is enhanced by an emphasis on student assessment. Teachers evaluate children’s progress and regularly communicate with parents.
The workshops will mainly be held during the weekends and give a chance for children to learn about contemporary art and develop their talents in the company of local and international contemporary artists.
Families can drop in anytime to explore the studio’s resources at the Discovery Area such as the specially designed Art Discovery Kits to complete at the studio or at home.
A hands-on parent and child workshops, as well as parenting classes will feature as an experience to learn and be entertained.
Art centric custom workshops and events for schools, families, and private gatherings such as birthday parties can be arranged. According to the studio they will offer, "personalized tutoring for ambitious students who want to develop their artistic skills under professional guidance."
A free class trial can be scheduled via their website as well as the various events and prices. The Studio will be open from Tuesdays to Sundays (closed on Mondays) from 10am to 7pm.
