At Canvas Club, we are passionate about nurturing conscious curiosity in our young crafters. Each activity is designed to ensure they play, create, think, learn and develop a number of important skills that will help make them the leaders and innovators of tomorrow!
EXPLORE THE MAGIC!
1 - 3 years (45 mins)
We sing, dance, play with bubbles, ribbons, balls... and make a unique themed craft to take home every week.
We focus on sensory play as well as emotional, social and fine motor skill development, exposing your child to new textures and colours in every class. We will also give you loads of ideas to turn everyday items into awesome crafts and toys at home. Most importantly, we have loads of fun!
We offer these classes at schools or at our studios (studio classes are adult assisted. Mom, dad, gran, grandad or nannies are welcome to join us for a creative crafting bonding experience).

INVENT MORE MAGIC!

Creative Crafters are encouraged to express their ideas through the process of working with different materials, designing, building, making mistakes, and envisioning creative solutions.
Furthermore, the class teaches children to think outside the box, build STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) abilities without realising it and develop important life skills.

why arts and crafts?
PROMOTES CREATIVITY, PROBLEM SOLVING AND INNOVATION
Creative crafting provides a platform for creative expression that nurtures imagination. Problem solving, decision making and processing skills are all innate to a crafting activity.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
The more creative you are, the less likely you are to lose your job to a robot one day! While robots may be better than you at calculating and diagnosing problems, they aren’t very good at creating original content, thinking outside the box or being abstract.
Most craftwork can be achieved in more than one way. Unlike maths where one doesn’t have much flexibility, crafts teach students that they can achieve the same result through a different method. This will help them in real life where they continuously face situations with multiple possibilities.
ENCOURAGES SELF EXPRESSION
Creative crafting allows for the development of a sense of personal identity and teaches children to express themselves; giving parents and teachers insight into what a child is feeling, thinking and experiencing.
ENCOURAGES SOCIALISING, BUILDING FRIENDSHIPS AND LEARNING TO HELP OTHERS
Interacting with others with the same interests provides children the opportunity to socialise and build friendships. Children assist classmates in sharing techniques and ideas.
BOOSTS SELF ESTEEM
Arts & craft activities create a sense of achievement inside children and boosts their self esteem. Teaching a child to create something tells them that they are in control. This builds immense confidence in them.
Unlike academics and sports, creative crafting does not promote competition. On the contrary, it helps convert negative energy into positive habits.
DEVELOPS FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Creative crafting helps develop bilateral coordination and improves fine motor skills as projects involve moving and using the hands and fingers.
TEACHES STEM SKILLS
Creative crafting not only incorporates STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) elements but it teaches valuable STEM techniques, models and concepts that sculpt the imagination.
TEACHES TIME MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING
Projects need to be planned and time needs to be managed to complete the project in time.
