Summer Art Worskhop For Kids

kids flowersWhat is art? Art is creativity & individual. Two terms that have unfortunately become rare in our society but are not completely lost, thanks to art lovers like Pickaboo & Attic Studios. The Studio has been running art workshops for kids (age 6-12) the past eight years & is once again, launching their summer art workshops for kids again this year. Encouraging not only the opportunity to use a wide variety of materials and mediums but also the study of famous artists & their influence, is a great way to distract your kids from complaining that they have nothing to do, or less inspiring activities like watching cartoons on tv & video games. Also it is proven that art, or to create art, is beneficial for both physical & psychological skills as well has health benefits. Not only does it help to balance mind & soul, it is also a strong way to express yourself as an individual. Art interventions can have stabilizing effects on us humans by reducing distress, increasing self-reflection & self-awareness, altering behavior & thinking patterns.

kids4While the workshop itself runs for 6 weeks between 6th of July and August 14th, each weekday, from Monday to Friday, has a different subject to guarantee the right inspiration for each individual, with such themes as imagination, landscape drawing, learning about famous artists & their influence, Bangkok life & observational drawing.

Pickaboo & Attic Studios offer now a variation of art courses & themes where kids can try different skills within arts & develop an interest & talent for creativity. Each workshop day will last from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. & all material will be provided for the young artists.

Day Package – 1 200 THB

Week Package – 5 000 THB

While the flower always has been a symbol of Asian traditions, representing the virtues of sexual purity and non-attachment, it has today not only become a great source for modern science & inventions but also an interesting material for many artists from different directions.

Together with the Himapan Gallery, Pickaboo is inviting you to join one of the well-known “Lotus Leaf Painting Workshops”, where you will have the chance to find & explore your inner artist. With a relaxing atmosphere of old antiques & beautiful pieces of art around you, it is a great opportunity to get in touch with your creativity.

Testing the Waters

Maybe you’re thinking about escaping the heat by submerging yourself in refreshing ocean waters. Activities like surfing and diving will take you to new heights — and depths — and help you to push your limits. Find out more about them here.

Or perhaps you’d like to pedal along country roads and explore lesser known parts of Thailand. With Pickaboo, you can see the Lanna countryside, floating markets and Khao Yai vineyards. We also pedal along the ocean in Hua Hin and bicycle through Bangkok’s urban jungles.

Our bicycling trips can be seen here.
