There is a range of interesting topics available during our school holiday programmes (in March, June, September & November-December).
These programmes, which also use the Artistic Writing™ teaching approaches, are the perfect way to ensure that your child is productively occupied while enjoying their break from school.

Makers Will Make (November/December Holiday Programme)
In this 2-day writing and creators workshop, children aged 6 to 16 will get the opportunity to create robots and design app interfaces for the future. By doing so, they will envision the needs of people living in the future and learn how to articulate these in writing.
By the end of the workshop, they will demonstrate, both in speech and in writing, how these games and apps work to serve the needs of future generations!
Note: The handouts for this workshop will be differentiated according to the age level of the participants. For group work, participants will be working with their peers from the same age group.
Cost: $200 per pax – First 10 sign-ups will receive a 3-D creation of their robots
*Each intake is limited to 10 participants.

Young Inventors™ Programme (November/December Holiday Programme)
Suitable for children aged 6 to 16 years
In this 3-day multi-intelligences programme, children get to build and make their own things such as games, art pieces and even robots as they find real solutions to real problems affecting children. They also get to take part in a Marshmallow Challenge as they work with their friends to build the highest marshmallow tower!
Based on Design Thinking Principles originally from Stanford University, the participants of this workshop will be doing the following:
Day 1 - Identifying problems
Day 2 - Hands-on and interactive creation of products using recycled materials
Day 3 - "Selling" their products
At every stage, children will be writing and journaling about their process leading up to their prototype. This ensures that they are actively thinking about how to problem solve and reflect on how to improve their design as they get feedback from their peers and teachers.
The presentation on Day 3 also trains them to be confident speakers & writers, as they persuade others to use their products as a viable solution.
Cost: $300 per pax
This includes all learning materials and a copy of the edited video clip of the presentation.
*Each intake is limited to 10 participants.

Young Authors™ Programme (November/December Holiday Programme)
Imagine your Primary or Secondary School child being a published author! In this programme, children will get to publish their own illustrated children’s book (approximately 15 pages) after 4 lessons! They will be taught how to enhance their illustrations and guided closely in the process of planning, writing and editing their stories. As a bonus, they will be getting feedback from a real-life published author and an illustrator. In addition, they could choose to print additional copies of their books to be sold and the proceeds from the sales would go to their adopted charity.
Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a sample of your children's written work (must be at least 200 words in length) and their illustrations by the 30 October 2019. The illustrations do not need to be linked to the written piece. The subject of the email should be "Young Authors Programme".
Please also include the following information:
1) Child’s Name
2) Child’s Age
Please note that if your child is selected for this programme, he or she is required to attend all four sessions.
Cost: $600 per pax
This includes all learning materials, including one copy of the completed book, ISBN barcode, two copies to be given to the National Library and one video clip. Additional copies of the completed book can be printed at a special rate. Artistic Strategies Academy will also be handling the donations to the charities.
