Global Art For Kids and Adults

I have no idea if there were schools for visual art enthusiasts during the 90's. But, I heard about ballet and martial arts schools. I love visual arts. Back then, I can draw, sketch, I even tried calligraphy, paint and made paper machete. Although, they did not send me in a formal school of arts, I'm contented they supported me by providing art materials I needed. When papa passed away in 1998 due to 3rd degree burn and suffocation, my interest in arts went away. From architecture I decided to take up B.S. in Nursing and graduated with honors, even topped the board exam. Di naman masyadong, mayabang just trying to inspire our dear students. Suddenly, just this year, my interest in arts started to come back. Perhaps because of blogger events that includes activities like making wired bookmarks and photo albums etc. In fact, this coming December I was invited to decorate a cake for the holiday season, watch out for that. I'm super excited!

Few months ago, I went to see a Drama School for children. Although I'm not yet a mom, I find it useful for my niece and nephews and of course for our future little Jonel and little Marge! Here comes another art school I visited a couple of days ago. The Global Art Philippines which is located in Greenhills, San Juan. They cater children and adults who wants to discover and enhance their skills in visual arts. Global Art is a company founded in Malaysia in 1999 by Mahair Goh. Here, children are taught not only how to copy a drawing but to create their own artwork, design and interpretation through different techniques. They have taught over 500,000 young artists in 15 different countries including Australia, Vietnam, China, USA, Cambodia, Myanmar, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

I met teacher Yenny Saw, she explained to us the modules and study program being offered at Global Arts. Different programs are available for different age groups. For starters, kids and parents are encouraged to start with the "Foundation" to "Basic" then "Intermediate" levels. They accept students as young as 3 years old to adults of any age.

The Foundation level (for age 4-9) starts with providing sketch pad that has a drawing, for example a circle. The kids will then color it and make a story out of the drawing.

The Basic level (7-9) - kids are encouraged to think outside the box.

Intermediate level (10-13) - they were encouraged to draw figures.

At Global Art teaches them varying level of skills using diverse mediums like color pencils, oil pastels, poster color, acrylic paint, watercolor, glass paint, ink pens and pencils.

Because it's an visual arts school, there are paintings, drawings, glass paintings, clay decorations, even using an ordinary tissue paper to make flowers and butterflies displayed. I stand in awe as I look at every pieces.

The rooms were spacious, kids work well because it's not too crowded.

In each category, there will be specific directives and guidelines on each template (such as coloring and adding objects, drawing on a given blank template based on particular theme, and adding ideas and objects based on the student's imagination.

I'm glad there are schools or centers that provide a place for people who are art enthusiasts, a place to cultivate their skills and equip them to be competitive globally. For more information, visit or call
