These incursions are perfect for schools, kindergartens, and early learning centres, offering curriculum-aligned, safe, and engaging experiences of exceptional educational value.

With age-appropriate activities, SKETCHROO equips students with tools to boost confidence and resilience, preparing them for modern challenges.

The SKETCHROO Art Incursion is the perfect transition from kinder to primary.
Our Unique Approach to Early Learning
At SKETCHROO, we celebrate authenticity, creativity, and originality. Our core belief is that creativity allows children to observe, explore, and navigate challenges with grace. Mistakes? They're not setbacks but springboards to innovative breakthroughs.

Embracing the chaos of creativity not only reduces stress but also instils positive creative perspectives during their pivotal growth years.

Our SKETCHROO teaching methodology, a fruit of relentless research, is designed to nurture confident creators. With our adept instructors, art education becomes an interplay of guidance and immersive exploration. Our teaching strategy is anchored in four pillars: Inspire, Demonstrate, Facilitate, and Consolidate Knowledge.

It's awe-inspiring to watch young minds push the envelope of art, often astonishing even our veteran educators. Effort is key – through mastery of their artistic elements, children build profound self-confidence.

 

The lasting impact of consistent creative practice, especially under SKETCHROO's mentorship, is the creation of assured artists. This priceless skill remains with them, forming a foundation for success as they blossom into adulthood.

Sound about, right?

The essence of our philosophy is to protect the natural creativity of children while heightening their appreciation of the creative journey’s complexities:

INSPIRATION

Every project begins with compelling questions, evoking memories, emotions, or drawing from renowned artists and contemporary artistic movements.

PROBLEM-SOLVING

We empower children to seek varied answers to artistic challenges, promoting critical thinking.

RISK-TAKING

By taking measured artistic risks, children refine their innovative mindset. Conversations about potential outcomes teach resilience, preparing them for both triumphs and setbacks.

INDEPENDENCE

Their exploration spans materials, colours, and techniques, fostering a unique artistic voice.


As they advance, children experiment with diverse materials and techniques, producing unique artworks. Group interactions foster enjoyment and camaraderie, enriching their artistic journey. Every class features hands-on art activities led by our specialist art teacher.

WHAT TO EXPECT

In their initial art sessions, children cultivate an appreciation for elements like lines, shapes, and colours. They distinguish between drawing and painting, enthusiastically creating art-like marks. For 3 to 5-year-olds, activities enhancing eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills are crucial, such as proper tool handling for drawing and painting.


Throughout these sessions, students will learn core art concepts like line, shape, colour, texture, and perspective, exploring various subjects in a nurturing environment. Session themes align with student interests, empowering them to develop a distinct artistic style. We'll also suggest captivating ideas to ignite their creativity.
