MastereignVisualArts-2

Mastereign Visual Arts is committed to the employing of visual arts as a challenging and interactive medium to impart skills such as hand-eye coordination, arts appreciation and thinking skills. This will come in useful not just in the making of art pieces, but also in the students’ process of self-discovery and character development.

Our exciting range of programmes is like a colour chart. They come in different shades of difficulty level and spread over a wide range that include ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and design.

The whole idea is to expose students to the world of visual arts. There is much to explore and experiment. We believe that the creative spark within the students will be ignited when they are led through a fun-filled creative process. Who knows? One day we might just discover a creative art genius amongst a class of students.

Our Stories

VisualArt_StoriesAn Insight

Mastereign Visual Arts is delighted that in our years of promoting and providing visual arts education, we have helped hundreds of schools achieve visual arts excellence. With all the school beautification projects that we have been involved in together with the students, we can confidently say that we have created a strong impression for generations through our programmes delivered by caring and competent visual art trainers.

A good example is the impact we made in 2012 on a group of ‘N’ level students in Marsiling Secondary school. The teachers as well as the Vice-Principal were amazed by the increased ability of the students after they did an Acrylic Painting programme with us. The students became more confident to tackle their ‘O’ Levels in the following year. They were impressed with their own ability and were surprised that they could paint. The impressive showcase that they made out of their works left all their teachers with a positive attitude towards their charges and a brighter hope that they will achieve excellence in the arts stream.

Mastereign Visual Arts Pedagogy

Paul Klee said that drawing is the act of taking the line out for a walk. This denotes a relaxing and a connective aspect of the creative act of visual art making.

In Mastereign Visual Arts, we aim to teach students that visual arts is more than just another subject that they have to take in school. It is an avenue where they can be daring and where they can explore their ideas and concepts without the fear of making a mistake.

Unlike the academic subjects, visual arts allows the students to expand their creativity and problem-solving skills through experimentation and self-discovery.
