About Mellow Space

What is Mellow Space?


Mellow Space is a space where people from all walks of life can share their common love for creation and expression. The experience is made to be as interactive or independent as you wish, leaving the artist (that's you!) to set the tone for your experience. The Mellow Space sessions are specially crafted to foster experimentation and exploration within participants. Our cosy, secret little studio, tucked along a busy street is a perfect space where you can take a breather, and learn at your own pace with the medium and material of your choice. During your session at the Mellow Space, we hope that you can slow down for a bit, engage with your curious self and have fun.




What if I am unable to finish my art work during the session? Am I able to extend?


Yes! You can stay for as long as we are open, and have the option to extend by the hour by paying for our hourly rate ($10). E.g. If you bought Mellow Bit ($25) for 2.5 hours and wish to stay for 2 more hours, you can pay an additional $20 to do so.




What if I have no art experience?


We embrace the presence of each participant and try to ensure that nobody will be lost in the process. We assure you not to worry if you do not have prior art experience. We have little booklets with tips on each medium so you don't feel so lost & alone.

Remember, Mellow Space is all about being free and creating at your own time and pace. Relax, unwind and have fun while you're at it!




Who is suitable to join Mellow Space sessions? What is the age limit?


For Mellow Space sessions, we require a minimum of 7 years and above to join the session due to the long duration of 2.5 hours which is not suitable for younger kids' attention span. For kids 12 years old and below, an accompanying guardian is required. If you have more than one child below 12 years old that is coming, at least one accompanying guardian is required. E.g. Jacob purchased a Mellow Bit session ($25) for his 8 year old daughter. Jacob will need to purchase another Mellow Bit session for an accompanying adult/guardian as his daughter is below 12 years old. Jacob will be paying a total of $50 for two Mellow Bit sessions for two persons. As getting into our studio requires a flight of stairs down, our studio is not wheelchair-bound friendly. For senior folks, we welcome you too! Please let us know if you have any underlying medical conditions that we should be aware of.




My friend wants to come and hang out while I paint. Can they come and not paint?


Sorry, only people who have reserved a slot are allowed as we have occupancy restrictions with COVID-19 safe management measures in place. If your friend would like to join you, persuade them to paint with you!




What if I'm late for the session?


No worries, you can head in as per usual. Your session will still end at the same time though, so try not to be late. Sorry!




What amenities are there?


Other than our painting tools/materials, we have amenities such as a WiFi, a mini-fridge stocked with beverages, and a water dispenser. We also have two bathrooms that is kept sparkling clean. Showering in our studio is not permitted.




Do I have to clean my area after I am done?


We disinfect the studio before and after every session. It would help us greatly if you could clear your area after you are finished. ☺




Are pets allowed on your premises?


Nope! Our house pet, Danny the Dinosaur, might scare your pets away.




Is there parking?


Yes, there is a multi-storey carpark in Textile Centre. On Weekdays and Saturdays, parking ranges from $2 - $2.50/hour depending on the time. On Sundays, parking is $2.50/per entry.




Is Mellow Space an art therapy session?


No, our sessions are aimed at fostering experimentation and exploration within participants. Although they could be calming and hopefully beneficial for our participants, they are not art therapy sessions. Art therapy sessions require qualified professionals to be carried out and at Artify Studio, we do not provide such services.




What are the available time slots for the Mellow Space sessions?


Mellow Craze (2.5 hours) For our Mellow Craze sessions, you may book for any time during our opening hours, from 10:00am—5:30pm. You may feel free to stay longer if you require more time to work on your masterpiece(s) by paying our hourly rate ($10). E.g. If you bought Mellow Craze ($25) and wish to stay for 2 more hours, you can pay an additional $20 to do so. Do note that the last available time slot for a Mellow Craze session would be 3:00pm - 5.30pm. Hourly extensions are not possible after 5:30pm. Mellow Mania (7.5 hours, 10:00am—5:30pm) Our slots for Mellow Mania sessions are only available at 10:00am as these are full day sessions which take up our entire opening hours.
