If you are pondering on what to do with your own or your children’s interest or capabilities in art, this video is for you.
You may be having these questions in mind:
- What is the prospect of investing in art and design education?
- What kind of universities and programs are CreativeKids students admitted to?
- How do parents and students at our studios strategically prepare portfolios that help them achieve educational and career goals, win awards, meet local and international assessment criteria and document creative processes and products?
Since September, we have had the pleasure of cooperating with a team of creative young people. They are final-year students from the HK Polytechnic University School of Design, Digital Media.
The creative outcome of our cooperation is the production of a lively video that shows students and a parent of our Portfolio-building Program sharing how a portfolio reflects creative competence and character.
You may resonate with some of their struggles. We hope you will find your own success along the unique journey in our program.
Our creative mentors are here to guide you to find your visual voice, direction, style, skills, and content that express your potential as an artist, designer, architect, or practitioner in the creative industry.

Age 14 and above
In this individualized and tailor-made Portfolio-building Class, students build and present their own body of artworks, idea development and thinking processes in an organized manner for local and overseas interviews, assessments, competitions and university admission. With the flexible content and creative processes, they develop their interpretation of chosen themes and unique personal styles. They are encouraged to draw ideas across fields of knowledge and to address social or global issues beyond personal exploration of art.
Besides Portfolio-building Program (PB), we offer popular and creative programs in art, design and architecture for tweens and teens.
Senior Art Program (Ages: 12-18)
This program offers foundational knowledge in art complemented by intensive hands-on skills training. In our self-directed approach under the close guidance of creative mentors, students choose their areas of passion. In focused studio sessions (ongoing or workshops), students learn visual concepts and principles, generate and develop ideas, build solid art skills in 2D (e.g., drawing, painting, mixed media, collages, photographs, digital painting) and 3D (e.g., model-making, sculpture, assemblage and experimental forms).
Senior KIDesign Program (Ages: 12-18)
Our immersive studio offers a special place to unlock creative youths’ potential in design, developing their interest into educational options and future careers that bring about positive social and environmental changes. Cross-curricular and STEAM in nature, KIDesign programs link together design, architecture, science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. Students develop visualizing, model-making, problem-solving and presentation skills. They are introduced to elements, principles and applications of design, design thinking, famous designers and trends.
Senior Young Architects Program (Ages: 12-18)
The light-hearted Young Architects Program inspires budding builders to explore the built environment across cultures and time. Students approach architecture as a discipline that draws upon different skills and fields of knowledge such as engineering, mathematics, science, design, art, social studies, urban and environmental planning. Through weekly practice on model-building skills, they learn to generate ideas using both 3D processes such as rapid concept models, and 2D processes such as design sketching in traditional and digital media.
