Our first encounter with Global Art was a few years back in an event in Shangri-la, Mandaluyong. We have considered enrolling Jed in a class. But being barely four years old back then, Jed’s fine motor skills was not yet ready for the task. A couple of months back, I inquired in Global Art Serendra branch and was set to enrol our son this summer.
It was a week before I was set to confirm my son’s trial class schedule at Global Art Serendra, when fellow mommy blogger, Rowena of Animetric.blogspot.com emailed me about an upcoming Global Art event. I couldn’t be more thrilled. Talk about timing!
My son is beyond excited! As soon as I asked him if he wanted to enroll in a Global Art class, he has been talking about it since. As a work from home mom, in as much as I want him to be involved with all the things he is interested in, my schedule cannot accommodate each and every one. I was thinking for summer, we’ll have him enrolled in Global Art and Swimming Classes instead and take a couple of months break from doing Karate.
We arrived a wee bit early at Global Art Main Headquarters in Greenhills, San Juan on the event day. I normally would not commit to an event when it’s my no drive day. But because this is something that our family is going to get involved in very soon, we dragged each other (my son and I) to Greenhills before the 3PM window. Nevermind if we had to stay put until 7PM, when we are already allowed to hit the road. Because we were early, I was able to check out the fancy artworks on the exhibit wall. I was there gushing, for the most part, especially when I saw the tags below each art work of children ages 5-8! Their works of art are something I’m not sure, at 35, I am able to be half as good at.
Honestly, I need no more convincing. Don’t just take my word for it, you have to go visit a Global Art branch nearby to see for yourselves. The art technique of Global Art is unique in itself. While a few “art schools” try to mimic their curriculum, Global Art sticks to a high quality standard that continues to upgrade itself on a regular basis.
Featured on the Most Creative Wall are artworks for the months of January and February 2012. The one on the right is an artwork of a 6 year old boy! How cool is that?
Featured on the Most Improved wall are the before and after artworks of a little girl. Check out the details of her “after” artwork. Unlike the one on the “before” artwork on the left, the one on the right is a tad livelier. It is easy to see that the shading, blending are done in a more careful manner. Lesser white spots and definitely improved! 🙂
When most of the kids of mommy bloggers were in, they were ushered in a room where they were taught a few basics of coloring, drawing and clay molding, according to their age group.

Together with four other mommy bloggers, we were in the adjacent room briefed by Teacher Yenny Saw about the history and subject offerings of Global Art. Global Art was founded and established in 1999 by Mr. Mahair Goh. Global Art has over 200,000 students worldwide in 18 countries.
