My kids started taking art lessons at Global Art Philippines last month. I wanted something that would take their mind off video games. All they ever do at home is tinker with their gadgets so I strongly felt they needed an alternative activity. Kids from 4 to 16 years old can enroll at Global Art Philippines.
Before your child starts lessons, he or she will be assessed to determine what the most suitable course for him/her. Assessment consists of asking the child to copy a drawing and then coloring it. Above is my 10-year old son’s assessment paper. For some reason he is so not inclined to color that from the time he was a toddler up until the present he has amassed piles of coloring books all left untouched.
After the child’s initial work is assessed, he will be taught the Global Art method of coloring and will be asked to color again. Above is my son’s work after being taught. It all happened within the same hour, during assessment. Yes, you can see results instantly.
This is my 7-year old daughter’s assessment paper. She drew and colored on her own on the lower part. She applied the Global Art technique on the top apple.
After assessment, I was told that my daughter could take the Foundation 2 course (Foundation 1 is the most basic and is recommended for younger enrollees) while my son opted for the Comic and Cartoon course. Upon enrolling:
- You pay a one time registration fee of P1,000. Student gets a free Global Art shirt and bag to store materials in.
- You pay P1,300 for materials depending on the course. For my daughter’s Foundation 2 course, the materials consist of a set of oil pastels, an HB pencil, and a workbook (pictured above).
- You pay the tuition fee. For my daughter’s Foundation course, it’s P8,400 for 12 lessons that last 2 hours each so that’s P350 per hour. You take the class once a week so one term = 12 lessons = 3 months. My son’s Cartoon and Comic course costs the same.
Cartoon and Comic course materials consist of C&C workbook, reference book, and a set of four technical pens.The kids have the lesson in one of the classrooms with a dedicated teacher. They stay for 2 hours once a week.
For Foundation 2, kids will be taught to trace, color, and eventually draw additional elements on their own to incorporate into the picture. Meanwhile the Comic and Cartoon course teaches one how to create and draw unique cartoon characters. They are given life through facial expressions, actions, varying perspectives, etc. Comic and Cartoon is generally recommended for older kids.
This photo was taken during my daughter’s first session. I think it’s amazing how there is already an obvious improvement in her coloring. 🙂
My son was tasked with creating his own unique character during the first session.
Each student gets a Global Art Rewards Card wherein he/she can earn points for coming on time, finishing a project, winning a competition, referring someone, etc. The points can later be redeemed for cool Global Art merchandise like…
