Holiday Programmes

Holiday Programmes

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. 

To view pictures of the holiday programmes we have run in the past, visit our Facebook Page Album here.

Comic Book Writing (December Holiday Programme)

Description:

What is the art of storytelling that makes comic books so compelling? Is it the well-crafted captions and dialogue or the perfectly crafted illustrations and compelling characters?

What have Marvel and DC Comics being doing all these years to attract such a wider base?

There is a reason why these superhero comics have become such a household name over the decades and have been an instrumental part of our childhood and even adult years.

Well, our Comic Book Writing holiday programme gives your children the opportunity to participate in this multi-dimensional art form!

Children aged 6-12 will get to learn the basics and fundamentals of comic book writing, including:

✅  Coming up with compelling characters

✅  Learning how to create an action-packed plot structure

✅  Learning how to use captions, dialogue, speech and thought bubbles

✅  Organising their stories into coherent different frames.

By the end of the two sessions, they will be able to create their very own comic strip!

Cost: $180 per pax

Date: 7th to the 8th of December, 2020

Timings: 10-12 PM on both days

Venue: 217 Bedok North Street 1 #02-69 S(460217)

Animated Stories Programme (December Holiday Programme)

Description:

Wonder what goes on in the world of Pixar and Disney?

What is the work that often goes behind making animated movies that we have all come to know and love so much?

Say no more!

ASA is offering an Animated Stories holiday program for children aged 7-12.

Here are the details:

Date: 14th and 15th of December, 2020

Timings: 10-12 PM on both days

Address: 217 Bedok North Street 1 #02-69 S(460217)

At ASA we believe there are multiple ways in which we can use art to tell effective stories and it is important for children to get exposed to different mediums so that they can creatively express themselves in a multitude of ways!

This holiday program will give students an opportunity to learn another art of storytelling, including:

✅  Creating their own animated graphics

✅  Creating captivating captions

✅ Enhancing their stories with audio

✅ Using a video editing software to put it all together

It is recommended that participants also bring their own iPad or Macbook with iMovie already installed.

Young Authors™ Programme (November/December Holiday Programme)

Description:

Has your child always wanted to publish a book and share it with the world?📚 🌎

Well, look no further!

Our Young Authors Programme is definitely for your child! Watch them finally get the chance to be fully published authors!

ASA’s most beloved and popular program is back again this year and we are pleased to announce that we will be accepting submissions of your child’s writing samples from today onwards! Selected children will then get a chance to publish their own illustrated short story, sell their books and donate the profits to a charity of their choice. They will also be mentored by an illustrator and published author!

We believe that our Young Author’s Programme has always been a great way for children to express their best creative selves, allowing their imagination and creativity to run freely!

Be it writing about a dragon or a mermaid in foreign lands, fighting off vampires, or real-life events, our young authors have excelled at creating books from scratch for the past few years.

The Young Authors Programme will be held on:

25th November, 28 November, 2 and 9 December 2020 (Wednesdays and Saturdays 3-5 PM)

Application Process:

If you’re interested in our call for submissions, here’s what you should do:

We are looking forward to welcoming our future Young Authors this year!
