1) What is Mellow Space?
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 perfect space where you can take a breather, and learn at your own pace. During your session at the Mellow Space, we hope that you can slow down for a bit, engage with your curious self and build meaningful connections.
Our tipster will give you tips and tricks to kickstart your creative process. Minor demonstrations will be shown if required.
However, instructors are not obliged to help participants paint their painting.
2) What if I am unable to finish my art work during the session? Am I able to extend?
We want each participant to take their time to create a piece they truly love and can take home. We provide two options for participants to finish up their work.
If you only need a little while longer to finish up your work, we recommended that you extend by an hour.
Every additional hour after your session is charged at $10.
If you need more than the above-mentioned time to finish your work, we recommend that you come back for another full session (2.5 hours). You may leave your artwork in our storeroom as long as we have space. Do note that any work that is unclaimed after 6 months will be repurposed. If you're staying for a second session or returning to complete your artwork, the rate of S$35/pax for the subsequent session(s) still applies. The money that we receive from Mellow Space helps us cover our expenses to keep the Mellow Space and our other classes running ☺
3) Do I need to bring my own art materials?
Nope! All art materials are provided. When you turn up, you will be greeted by our humble pantry, a room full of canvas and easels,
and of course, soon-to-be-homies. You can bring sugar, spice and anything nice to share with the community.
For Acrylic Painting : canvas, acrylic paint, paintbrushes, palette knives, sponges & apron.
