ABOUT US

Seven seasons think that drawing is the magic to follow one's will, is the game written by oneself, is the free expression of joys and sorrows, is the fantasy and thoughts. Drawing itself can not only to cultivate students' aesthetic taste, but also enhance their sense of innovation and experiment.

Instead of simply teaching how to paint, Seven seasons art teaches children to “change” their thinking patterns and encourages them to “innovate”. At the seven seasons art, one of the most common words mentioned is “change”. We do not encourage simply copy, we do not do template drawing, we ask children to be dared to think, dare to do, dare to try.

We integrate the theory and skills of painting into the teaching, with emphasis on encouraging children to use their imagination and creativity to create their own pictures. This is the reason that even with the same lesson, each child’s painting is different, each child’s painting has its own story, everyone can be “themselves“!
