Kids and arts are inseparable. Give any child a tool, and they will try to make art out of it. Surely, we’ve seen those crayon doodles on the wall, lipstick scribbles on the bathroom counter, and mom’s eyeliner on their chubby cheeks? Doing arts is crucial for any child’s development as it encourages creativity and imaginative thinking, develops problem-solving abilities, builds fine motor skills, and it also helps kids connect with each other as well as with their surrounding world. Arts come in many forms, so your little ones have a huge world to explore. From painting to sewing, from pottery to cookie decorating, Little Steps has done the legwork and gathered all the information you need. Here are the best arts and crafts classes in Jakarta!
Established in 1998, Hadiprana Art Centre welcomes art enthusiasts ages 3 and up. The classes they offer for kids in Jakarta include Crayon Class for kids, Acrylic/oil Painting Class, and Drawing Class. For adults, they have Portfolio Preparation Class, Fine Arts Class, as well as a Perspective Class. The reputable art center has regular exhibitions featuring local artists as well as student pieces. For more art activities outside class, you can order their Home Art Activity kit so your little ones can paint their own tote bag, draw-string bag, or pencil case at home. What a perfect COVID activity!
