In this workshop, children will learn not only about the style but also composition:
What I really like about it is that it not only enhances fine motor skills (it requires hard work!) but also focus and perseverance. For the June holiday, Heart Studio is organising a Pointillism camp again! This camp stretches over a period of 3 days and details are as below:
