KIDS & CHILDREN'S ART CLASSES
I currently teach art classes for children. My style of teaching focuses on nurturing creative thinking, using art as a way to express their ideas and thoughts.
I love to give the children autonomy over the content of each lesson, by getting them to suggest themes they'd like to explore.
My aim is to encourage children to confidently create an art piece and understand the intent behind what they have created.
Follow me on Instagram @shengyi.lee to see snapshots of my recent art classes. I have been tutoring weekly since February 2017.

I also run a web design practice, Studio Petit (studiopetit.com.au) and currently work with the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).
HobbiesI keep up a daily yoga and cycling routine - it keeps my brain active throughout the day.
I am also a big foodie (my closest friend is a chef) and love watching movies!
Originally I am from Malaysia but migrated to Australia in 2009. I love travelling and my favourite countries include Thailand and Japan.
Many would say I'm an upbeat and optimistic person, in fact my name in Chinese directly translates to "lively and happy"!

I found Sheng via this website & setup a trial class for my 6 year old daughter. Since that first class my daughter has loved going to Sheng's place every Saturday. To say it’s her favourite activity is an understatement!! In the short time she has been with Sheng, her drawing skills have noticeably improved. More than that she has a lot of fun painting, drawing with Sheng. Sheng has been patient, encouraging and supportive of her drawing style and brought out a lot of creativity in her. I personally find Sheng a passionate artist who is great with little people and provides a nurturing, fun environment for them to find their inner artist. I highly recommend Sheng to any parent who want their children to learn drawing whilst having fun. You won’t regret it.
My two daughters are very happy to learn drawing from Sheng Yi. She is very nice, patient, and always encourages my girls to be creative and makes each class so enjoyable. Each class has different topic and my girls get a wide exposure to arts. They do a lot drawing at home now.
