Fashion, Sewing And Fabric Art Classes

If your child has an interest in fabric, stitching, fashion or fashion drawing, there are a few places that make teaching these skills their speciality in Hong Kong.


Active Kids has a programme it calls Mission Runway (for young fashionistas aged 4 to 14) that helps kids learn how to combine textiles, design and presentation into one. Your child will have the chance to draw, design and make their own clothes, before taking part in a fashion show at the end to show off their accomplishments.

Mission Runway By ActiveKids, Unit A, 1/F, Nan Sang Building, 86 Belcher’s Street, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong, 3480 4199, [email protected],


Fabricart wants to inspire creativity in kids with fabric, something that often doesn’t get enough credit as a creative medium here in Hong Kong. Weekly classes take place at PMQ, as well as at a few international schools and clubs, while offering party bookings and events too. Kids will learn basic fabric design and sewing skills while being encouraged to be as creative as possible.

Art Jamming Party

Art jamming, if you’re not familiar with the term, is in a sense a big art party and the idea was born right here in Hong Kong. People gather together in one room and get creative in the same space. It’s a fun, unique and social way for kids (and adults) to learn to paint (or rediscover the joy of it), express themselves and share ideas.


Aptly named, artjamming has been an art staple in Hong Kong for 20 years. Boasting a 2,000 sq ft studio with a 1,200 sq ft garden terrace, you’ll have more than enough space for a gaggle of kids to jam out in this studio. Pick your art jamming package (that includes your canvas and medium of choice), as well as the length of time you want to spend in the studio and start painting!

Choco L’ART Studio

With drop-in options and online booking, Choco L’ART has made it easier than ever to get your kids’ art jamming. With supplies, instruction, materials and soft drinks all included in the booking price, it’s a hassle-free choice. You can also book kids’ parties, as well as enrol in one of its creative workshops.

Chinese Ink Painting And Calligraphy Classes

Chinese ink paintings use bamboo paper and a brush dipped in ink, similar to the ones used in Chinese calligraphy. Expose your kids to something uniquely Chinese with this challenging and beautiful technique.


A fusion of East meets West, Ka-atelier is inspired by the fundamentals of Chinese painting while infusing Western modes of expression. It offers private courses, workshops and lessons, as well as kids art parties. Classes are for kids aged 10 and up and can be booked as a one-off class or a package of four.

Ka-atelier, No. 2D, Star Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong (by appointment only), 3484 2919, [email protected],

Even if you can’t read a word of Chinese, the art of Chinese calligraphy is still easy to appreciate. The delicate strokes of the paintbrush create stunning pieces of artwork while also being a very meditative creative process for the artist. You might find that your artistic child suddenly gets more immersed in his or her Mandarin lessons after attending these classes. Renowned Chinese Calligraphy master artist Miss Laisee Wong has won numerous awards for her calligraphy and offers one-on-one lessons at a student’s home (or office, for adults). For lesson schedule and prices, please contact [email protected]. She takes private classes (one-on-one or up to two children) for those above 5 years old.

Unstructured Free Learning Art Classes

With all of the extracurricular lessons kids in Hong Kong have these days, sometimes it’s nice for kids to have space to just be themselves. These art studios aim to allow kids to do just that, by letting them create and grow uninhibited in an unstructured environment.

Class sizes are also kept small to ensure there’s ample space to be as creative as possible. Parent-child classes are available for the young ones and independent classes are available for the older kids (snacks and breaks are also included).
