Budding Artist Membership

Year-long Art Membership for Age 8-12

Membership Description

Budding Artist Membership is a year long membership that aims to bring studio quality art education to your home.

I know first hand how frustrating it is to be working so hard at perfecting one's own art and be hit by stumbling blocks. I understand thow disheartening it can be to unable to draw what is in one's mind's eye. I also understand how lonely it can be to be working alone with nobody to guide me. This zaps a child's confidence and causes many to give up.

Wouldn't it be great if your child has ongoing access to a professional artist/teacher and their instructions to help your child get the results they deserve? This type of attention and expertise is unprecedented in children online art education!

.... well, this is why I created our "BUDDING ARTIST MEMBERSHIP"
with all your children in mind. I am so excited to share my years of experience and expertise!

Our Curriculum

Multi- medium

We believe that a curious learner learns best. Nothing kills learning faster than boredom. (We understand the oil pastel hate, we do...)

With a vast variety of medium projects to choose and learn from, your child will never get bored or deterred from learning Art. Look forward to charcoal, acrylic painting, pen and ink, collage, watercolours, mix media etc...

We believe in encouraging exploration over regimental copies. ( Say goodbye to copying childish drawings that is rampant in online classes everywhere. )

The Art of Observation

You can't draw what you can't see.

Our curriculum is grounded in observations. We designed exercises that will help children learn how to bypass common pitfalls in observations.

Many of us are not bad in drawing and observing. We simply wasn't shown and taught how to do it. By default, human observations are designed to be for survival and that means being efficient. However, drawing requires us to go beyond observing for the sake of survival, which will require some re-training and practise.

Heart + Mind + Body + Soul = Creativity

Creativity is the ability to create. Without creation, one cannot be creative. Thus, it is more important for us to nurture our ability to create than to "grade" our creativity based on the outcome of what we create. I think society has gotten it backwards most of the time.  

In our membership, we focus on teaching children how to tune in to their heart voices during creation. We learn how to engage with our critical mind compassionately.

We help children connect to their body and soul and hold space for creativity to blossom.  


Why Budding Artist Membership?

Unique benefits of an online membership with Utter Studio Online Academy

You get full control of the learning pace, schedule and time. You get to rewatch videos as many times as you need to.

Our curriculum is tried and tested. We have been in the arts education industry since 2014. We use these very lessons in our studio and have seen children become wildly confident in drawing and creating. 

Our unique philosophy and methodology means that you won't get run of the mill content. We are passionate about demystifying "talent" in drawing. We believe in experiential learning. We use art making as a process to foster meaningful connections with our bodies and mind. Our lessons are thoughtfully and mindfully created.

One the biggest difference in the ongoing support that you will get from our community. Our resident teacher will be giving feedbacks and critques for your child's artwork so that you know how and where to improve.

Unlike other online courses or youtube videos where you purchase a course or watch the video and you are left on your own.

In Budding Artists Membership, we will be holding monthly critiques and bi-monthly art jams to get to know each other within the community and learn together!

The curriculum will grow with you. As the community grows, our conversations will help to shape this membership!

Testimonials

"We subscribed to other online art classes. After a while the drawing repeats. Like if I compare last year's mid autumn and this mid autumn, they draw the same moon and rabbit thing. They keep repeating the drawings.

In contrast,  the Budding Artist Membership allows my child to pick and choose lessons that he is interested in, and learn at his own pace, at his own comfort level. The online detailed feedback is able to help him with difficulties that he faced so he is able to complete the art piece. Gareth even attempts a new photo reference on his own after watching your videos.

We love the explaination of art supplies and the feedback forum the most!"

"Prarthana has been extremely happy to be reunited with her teacher Ee Sock. These online classes are a welcome substitute to those who are not in Singapore but still are passionate about learning Art and participating in fun Art sessions of Teacher Ee Sock. I will be recommending these sessions to my other friends here in India as well.

Extremely thankful that these sessions are being meticulously planned.

Prarathana loves the open communication with Teacher Ee Sock through the online membership and she never feels lonely."

"We have tried other online art memberships and courses but stopped after 2 terms because it gets boring and repetitive.

Yours is more interesting and fun. We love the variety, how all the tools and supplies are catered for. I love how you encourage the kids to do and see things differently in your online sessions. Things are so refreshing!"

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Budding Artist Membership caters to age 8- 12. Parents with children age 8-12, are welcome to join and try out the lessons here as well. I mean why not?

If your child is younger, we suggest you look at Curious Creator Club. This membership is designed with harder techniques and aimed at stacking up more techniques as we go along. Younger children have very different needs devlopmentally, and they also have very different cognitive levels, and motor skills control. To prematurely expose and force them into doing this membership could potentially do more harm than good.

If you are older than 12, you can look at The Art Circle. The structure in the Art circle will be diffrent and focus more on collectively gaining more practise in the mediums that we love and enjoy.

No this is not a course. A course is short term. Our online academy is offering long term support through subscriptions. Just like no parent will send their child for a class for 1 holiday class and expect a lasting transformation, why should this be any different? All skills are built up like muscles. In order for your child to get a quality art education and pick up decent skills, consistent exposure is necessary. That’s why we designed the subscription. 

I’ve tried and it does not work. Most ZOOM classes are reduced to basic copy drawing and painting classes. There are already plenty of these out there. If you want true independence and confidence in learning how to draw, a child must learn how to observe effectively for themselves and trust their eyes. So they cannot just COPY. They need to be engaged in the subject and think for themselves. 

Ever tried a youtube painting and it never turns out the way you want it to look like? Ever google pre-school art activities only to find overly simple kindergarten crafts handprint crafts that celebrate Thanksgiving? The Internet has vast resources, however, they are random. Many times they will be either too simple, too complex or too out of context for you. If you have loads of time to sieve through, then I say good for you! If not, take a look at our content! Our curriculum is tried and tested against hundreds of children, Curated to match age to skillset and coupled with strong mindset work to build you and your children up.   

Our lessons are pre-recorded and there is no fixed deadline. You can choose to work on it at your own time and pace that works for you and your child. There is no need to catch up because the classes are always available for you on the platform.

We have built in several chcek points for your child to submit in progress work, ask questions and access the community to ask questions when stuck. In depth critique and feedbacks are also available if your child submits completed works at the end of the month.

You control your own learning schedule! The classes are always available for you as long as you are in the subscription.

My suggestion is to put aside 1.5 hour minimally weekly to do this. Building a regular consistent schedule helps your child gain momentum needed in learning new skills and building new creative habits. Consistency is what transforms average into excellence.

For younger children parents are encouraged to participate actively in curating the experience. This could mean acclimatising them to them to the platform and helping them out with the materials purchase. 

There are 4 ways

1) Submitting his work and questions within the platform allows for interim quick chcek-ins from me.
2) Community. One can ask and get support in the private community available through the platform
3) Monthly Critiques / Award Ceremonies. Completed works will be selected for features and critiques.
4) Bi-monthly art jams

Unfortunately there is no refund policy. You will get access for the full month even if you choose to cancel way before your subscription ends.
