A1 : ASA’s Artistic Writing™ Programme, a first of its kind in Singapore, is a premium and enriching programme that grooms young writers by

1) marrying art with writing — ASA uses various art forms as a tool to ignite imagination and impart and hone writing skills. Our students engage in hands-on, interactive, meaningful art-centred pre-writing activities and games that develop analytical and creative thinking. Acquiring these skills empowers them to become confident communicators and proficient writers, excelling in the various writing genres!

2) recognizing the benefits of differentiated learning – Here at ASA, our programmes are developed based on extensive research surrounding the arts and education, namely the theory of Constructivism. We acknowledge the current stage of each student’s learning ability and our tiered programmes are tailored to inspire him/her to push the boundaries and to think outside the box when applying honed writing skills.

3) adopting a process skills-centred approach – Unlike the outdated rote-learning and memorization techniques used by other creative writing centres, students attending ASA’s Artistic Writing™ Programme acquire creative writing process skills like vocabulary building, creating and visualizing, ideating, planning, organizing, responding and writing, editing, and refining and evaluating in their writing endeavours. In the process, significant life skills like critical and creative thinking, evaluative, reflective, communications and social emotional skills are also inculcated through the writing process.

4) implementing visionary pedagogy – At ASA, our instructors adopt a facilitative approach during each session where they guide, initiate and motivate students to learn. This advantageous approach, successfully executed in higher learning institutions, enables our students to become adept at problem-solving; applying independent, analytical, critical and creative problem-solving skills acquired in their writing endeavours; confidently taking ownership of their voices and opinions.

5) setting goals and working to fruition – Students at ASA are motivated to submit original and creative writing pieces to both local and international writing competitions. Beyond this, children who attend ASA’s Young Authors Programme go on to publish self-illustrated original and creative stories. Social responsibility is awakened in our young authors as they are encouraged to donate the proceeds from the sale of their books to an adopted charitable organization.
