We all know idle hands are the devil’s playground, so what better than to use this entire month’s worth of free time during the school holidays to help your child nurture his or her budding artistic talents?
Even if you can’t differentiate between a pencil and a crayon yourself, there are experts abound who would be happy to help.
Here's our selection on the top 3 picks for classes and workshops on this month for kids aged 5 and above, covering everything from woodcrafting, printing, photography and so much more.
