Kids Circle offers Visual Arts classes at all our locations and online. Our program will give children the opportunity to create and express themselves through art. Children will be able to explore and learn to work with charcoal, crayons, soft/oil pastels, watercolour, acrylic and oil paintings as well as using other media to incorporate different effects, always ensuring that they are having fun and staying safe.
Our Visual Arts teacher Oormila is an expressionist artist who has been painting in Acrylics for over 20 years and also enjoys creating in new materials. She finds inspiration in her surroundings and many of her paintings are inspired by the exotic places in which she has lived. She likes to paint with energetic strokes and bright, bold colour, celebrating life and beauty in her art.
Oormila has experience teaching multiple arts techniques and she has had the opportunity to exhibit her work in Kuwait, India, Singapore, and Australia. Her work can be found in private collections all over the world and we feel lucky to have her in our team!
