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.

ActiveKids – art classes for budding fashion designers

ActiveKids has a programme it calls Mission Runway (for young fashionistas aged 4 to 14 years) 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.

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.

artjamming

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!

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.

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 for kids above 5 years (or office, for adults).
