Global art attack in Davao

“Global Art attack in Davao”
Sun.Star Davao, April 24, 2010

With over 600 centers located in countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, India, China, Australia, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Vietnam, New Zealand, Fiji, Maldives, Jordan and Russia, the Global Art & Creative is undoubtedly one of the leading art schools for kids across the globe.

Founded in 1999 by a highly experienced art teacher in Malaysia, Mr. Mahair Goh, the Global Art & Creative (GAC) Method of Learning is “a comprehensive, systematic, innovative and child-oriented educational system specifically designed for young children aged 4 years old and above”.

Mr. Goh observed that in school, more emphasis is placed on other subjects like languages, mathematics, and sciences but not on art.

“Art training can tremendously help in the development of Visual Processing - the foundation of the human learning process. Our aim in Global Art is to enhance this untouched potential of being able to see and visually process what was seen, and then interpreting what was processed in an aesthetic work of art”, Global Art & Creative’s founder/director discloses in his website.

In Davao City, Global Art & Creative had its soft launching recently which was attended by the special guests and dear friends of franchisees Drs. Edwin and Helen Chu. The celebration also coincided with the 2nd birthday of their youngest daughter Eliana Grace who had a fun-filled art-themed party at the Global Art Davao compound.

Global Art branches in Metro Manila are located in Ortigas, Quezon City, Serendra (Bonifacio Global City) and Makati.

“We saw Global Art as a vehicle for children to enhance their creativity and imagination while at the same time letting them enjoy what they are doing”, shares dentist Dr. Helen Chu.

For Dr. Chu, mother of two, learning art is not just doing doodles or basic coloring.

“With the distinct techniques that we teach the children, it will make their work more artistic and colorful, thus, building their confidence. Learning art also helps improve their penmanship and will come in handy in their art-related school projects and assignments”, she emphasizes.

The Global Art Davao teachers are especially trained by a professional trainer from Malaysia with their unique program. The head manager and teacher, Lyn Fernandez, is a graduate of Interior Design from the prestigious Philippine School of Interior Design in Makati.

Global Art equips students with formal art training comparable to any syllabus taught in art school. Students can learn the basics, from subject composition, perspective, color harmony and contrast, to human figure drawing.

The Arts Program is where the children learn how to color with shadowing and 3D effects using oil pastel for 8 sessions per month. On the other hand, in the Craft and Clay Program, the kids will work with 3 crafts and 7 clay projects in 12 sessions.

“The Arts and Craft Program is a combination of coloring in oil pastel and doing craft projects in 7 sessions. We also have a Clay Program only where you can choose from 6 or 12 sessions. Here the children will concentrate in clay molding of different shapes and objects”, Dr. Chu explains.

In Malaysia, Global Art & Creative has received several awards from The Malaysia Book of Records such as “The Largest Chain of Art Centers” and “The Biggest Glass Painting”.

Moreover, it has been favorably endorsed by the well-respected Limkokwing University College of Creative Technology in Malaysia.

“A wonderful bonus in creating art is that it relaxes and rewards our kids thereby boosting their self-esteem and self-worth. These enable them to express and communicate their own emotions, thoughts and experiences”, Dr. Chu enthuses.

Global Art Davao is located at 301 E. Palma Gil St., Bo. Obrero, D.C. (inside Le VivreFurniture Compound). Tel. no. (082)2219980.
