Frequently Asked Questions - Canvas Ark: Regular Programmes (4 - 12 years old)

What age can my child join the workshop/art programmes?

Each workshop/ art programme has a recommended age. Older children are welcome to join any class they like, keeping in mind it may be too simple for them. Younger children will be assessed on a case by case basis.

Where is Canvas Ark located?

Canvas Ark is located at

  • SAFRA Toa Payoh #01-03

Can my children ride on my SAFRA membership?

Yes, for children 4 and below. Those 5 years and above will need their own SAFRA dependent membership.

How many children are in a class?

For workshops, we try to have a class size of 1:8. Our studio can hold up to a maximum of 3 workshops at any point in time. Due to Covid19 safety measures, we are reducing class size to 1:5.

My child is below 4 years, can he/she join the art classes or workshops?

We have parent-accompanied art jamming for children 2 - 4 years old. We recommend toddlers below 4 years old to join these.

Can I book a class immediately?

We encourage parents to make a booking at least 1 week before. Bookings with less than 1 week's time will be considered on a case by case basis.

What is child directed, process-based learning?

Children learn best when they are given space and able to initiate their own interaction and make their own experiences. They are involved in the artwork and thinking about the process of creating rather than following instructions. We find that this is the best method for engagement and enjoying classroom learning.
