Pablo Picasso famously said, “Every child is an artist” and this is definitely the case for every child that walks through the doors of Attic Studios.
About Attic Studios
As they self describe, Attic Studios “has a long, colourful history, right in the bustling heart of Bangkok. [They] provide friendly and supportive fine art instruction for kids, teens & adults.” Located in the heart of Sukhumvit, Attic is easy to get to and there are plenty of options for parents around the area as well while the kids are in class.
What we loved most about Attic Studios
Our 7 and 9 year old attended the Attic Studio’s Saturday morning art class (every Saturday 10am-1pm) and enjoyed every minute. Mr. Spencer greeted the kids and made them feel instantly welcome and introduced them to their classmates for the session and connections were made. The environment is warm and creative as well as educational and fun.
Mr. Spencer’s teaching style is lively and informative and our kids (one artistic and one not so much) really enjoyed his supportive style and were eager to work.
For the lesson, the children were focusing on abstract design pop art and studying composition and balance. The children were encouraged to look at animals and interpret them into shapes; all whilst learning different techniques and taking inspiration from the artist Lois Mailou Jones.
We my partner and I arrived, 3 hours later, we were greeted with two very happy kids with works of art that they were so proud of and to be honest, they were really great paintings that we look forward to displaying.
As a parent, I felt really comfortable leaving the children in the safe hands of the lovely team there as we went for a coffee and we were very happy with the end product and the kids overall experience. We asked our kids for their views about their time at Attic Studios and both loved their session and are eager to go back. It’s a win win.
