Our Tampines Hub is fast becoming one of my favourite hangouts. And they are only in Phase 1 right now, with just a fraction of the facilities ready. Already, I think it’s crazy happening.
I was ecstatic when I found out that my friend’s art studio, Achievers Arts, also moved to Our Tampines Hub. Making it SO MUCH more accessible for me compared to her old location at East Village Mall!
This meant that we could spend go rock-climbing at Clip ‘n Climb in the morning, and pop by Achievers Arts in the afternoon for some art jamming. Two of MF’s hobbies in one place! How cool is that?
Or you know what? I think I would just drop MF off at Clip ‘n Climp, then hop down to do some art jamming myself. Since well, I’m kind of terrified of heights. Or when MF is climbing, I can bring the equally-terrified-of-heights MY down to do some painting. Yeap, sounds like a totally awesome plan to me.
Okay, for disclaimer sake, I have already said Achievers Arts is opened by my friend. So any review I do of this place is totally biased. But I think the art works on display at the entrance speaks for itself.
Achievers Arts is ran by a family who is genetically artistic. Like it’s crazy how the father, uncle, sister, husband (okay, that’s not genetic, but somehow it worked out) are all able to paint. You see the portrait below of my friend? Her DAD painted it. Crazy right?
Imo, businesses that are ran by families have a special touch. Compared to those big-name franchises. It’s more personal. You get this warm fuzzy feeling when you step in there.
Or maybe it’s just me feeling warm and fuzzy since it’s my friend’s shop. Okay, since whatever I say is biased, let me just share with you what Achievers Arts offers.
Regular Art Classes
They have art classes catered to different age groups. To sign up for their regular art classes, there is a one-time registration fee of $50. Subsequently, classes start from a very reasonable $350 for 10 classes. It doesn’t just cover canvas painting, there are craft classes as well!
And since Our Tampines Hub is under People’s Association, Passion Card Holders can get 5% discount on the regular art classes.
If you prefer to just paint on your own without an instructor’s help, you can just hop in to Achievers Arts to do Art Jamming. Single session cost $45 for a 3-hours, including a 14″ x 18″ canvas and unlimited use of paint and brushes at Achievers Arts. Passion Card holders can get 10% discount. And they even have a bundle deal of 5 sessions for just $190!
Character Art Workshop
If your child prefers to paint an artwork of his / her choice, but is not confident enough to do it entirely on their own at an Art Jamming session, you can also enrol in a character art workshop instead. It’s not restricted to children btw, adults can join in too!
In these workshops, you will receive guidance by an instructor. Prices range from $80 to $100, depending on the difficulty of the art piece you choose.
