Attention all parents: this might make or break your child’s future so take heed!
Are your kids suffering from such symptoms – constant doodling, stubborn eschewal of everything mainstream, and persistence about keeping up their own styles and identities? If so, your child might be suffering from a grave condition; they bear the early signs of a creative genius! But, despair not, we have just the prescription you need – a fun-filled 5-day design camp administered by a highly experienced French trainer!

Upon completion of the treatment, your child will be able to:

  • Get equipped with digital design soft skills which is of exceptional importance given we’re living in the heyday of visual design.
  • Incorporate the elements of art and graphic design into their daily work such as enhancing their visual presentation skills through digital design and understanding visual hierarchy
  • Harvest more lateral creative thinking concepts
  • Interact with like-minded sufferers, where team building will be of huge assistance in managing their condition

The dangers of deferring treatment:

  • Your child may never realize the benefits of creative genius and feel imprisoned in the four-walled cell of their latent mind, unable to translate their imagination into a tangible product
