Art and creative drawing has the power to enhance a child's mental development, broaden the scope of imagination and exploration of hidden creative talent. Parents send their children for art lessons not because they want them to be artists one day, but to equip them for their soon to be field of endeavour. Positive learning experience in art develops imagination, promoting creativity and innovative thinking in a natural and man-made world. It also increases self-esteem, confidence in problem solving and logical sequence of developing ideas.

The dilemma that we face is that emphasis is placed on other subjects like languages, mathematics, and sciences - but not on art. Students nowadays cannot even draw a simple drawing or outline. Ironically almost all subjects taught in schools needs an illustration, an outline, a drawing, and a diagram. Students are just not mentally equipped to accomplish these art based demands.

How well one draws depends on how well one sees. Art training can tremendously help in the development of Visual Processing - the foundation of the human learning process. Our aim in Global Art is to unlock the hidden potential of being able to see and process visually, and then interpreting what was seen in an aesthetic work of art.

Our exhaustive and thoroughly researched syllabus aim to provide our students with formal art training comparable to any syllabus taught in art school. Students can learn the basics, from subject composition, perspective, colour harmony and contrast, to life drawing. Systematic and straightforward, this syllabus is designed to cater to the needs of all students with or without artistic talent.

I have always loved drawing, drawing has always been there as soon as I can hold pencils. I was very imaginative evidently by the series of sketches & drawings on the walls in my parent's house. Drawing allows me to express my innermost thoughts, imaginations & develop my art skills. Growing up living in a small town with just rivers, hills & jungles, we have little but we have so much to do by creating our own games & activities. 

One of my favorite was to create 'Popping Gun' equivalent to 'Slingshot' from the bamboo ( chutes ), chopsticks & small beans (Wild plants) made up as the 'bullet', we carry our creations everywhere & would get into combative mood once we have enough players. As it becomes popular among us, some actually made the 'popping guns' to be sold to friends & local grocery stores and to me that is a classic example of creativity & innovation put to good use.

Looking back, I really enjoyed & learned so much, I have many many friends and I excelled in sports, academically & artistically I did fairly well, and art was a constant feature in my growing years. Right into my adulthood I was determined to carve out my name as a cartoonist, I really enjoyed the profesion and I still do. I have always view art as a tool to make a living, which is true to a certain extent, but that changed after I joined Global Art in 2005, it totally & forever changed my perception about visual art.

I found art to be more than just a visual subject, learning art encompasses the technical aspects through the process of learning art, learners get to gain invaluable insights, knowledge & skills to improve their thinking abilities, learning disciplines, confidence and skills. With that in place, learners will only grow & function better, creatively as they move forward to the many phases of their life. Reviewing my own personal experiences, I somehow believed Art has to do with all the good things that came to me (still it is), it is so rewarding & enriching, LIVE LIFE...CREATIVELY!!
