I knew miss 5 had a love, passion and talent for art but had no idea how to develop that. Wow. This class has gone beyond any expectation. She has produced exceptional art and her love and passion has grown. At 5 she tells everyone she is an artist. And she is :)

Ryan Escobar

Before enrolling my daughter to Realisticus Art Academy, she already showed some interest and creativity in art. The classes did more than just develop her skills which really impressed me. First is Confidence. She's now more secure in trying out new things she hasn't done before. Second is Concentration. She's able to focus on her tasks for longer periods of time. Third is Communication. She will ask the tutor her questions to gain better understanding of the lesson. Fourth is Cheerfulness. My daughter is already a happy kid. But these art classes brought about a more consistent happy countenance out of her. Confidence. Concentration. Communication. Cheerfulness. Wow! Thank you to Realisticus Art Academy and shout out to her great tutor, Maya.

Janet McDonald

We have seen our daughter grow in confidence as she developed her art skills with Maya over the past few years. We now have all three children enrolled and they have an impressive portfolio of incredible guided art projects, in a range of art mediums using various techniques. The confidence in art definitely transfers into all areas of their lives, as they learn what they are capable of with some positive encouragement and expert direction. Art is a great outlet for whatever mood you are in (happy, sad, angry, contemplative, bored) and compensates well for time otherwise frittered away on digital devices. School projects often include an artistic option (draw a poster or a story board or a family crest or a self portrait), and art classes have enabled my children to confidently tackle those tasks with a foundation of technical competence. They all now have class reputations for being "good" at art which builds self esteem AND they enjoy sharing the tips they have learned about scale, proportion, texture and colour with their friends. I can't rate the Realisticus Art Academy Team highly enough - the classes are awesome and fun, and the life skills are priceless. Definitely worth the investment!

Arathy Santhikumari

My child have been going to Realisticus Art Academy classes since May and I'm delighted to found such a fantastic platform where my child learned artistic skills that can be applied throughout her life. She is throughly enjoying the sessions and I believe these classes are helping her to increase her imagination and to embrace creativity and confidence. It’s a great way for my child to discover a rewarding new passion. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Regina Chin

I would like to share with you Brendan has improved a lot of drawing skills like symmetry, shading skills, centre the drawing, make 3D drawings. I'm very impression how he has developed his skills. His drawing at school was selected and displayed at North West shopping mall. He is creative in his drawings. At school, his teaher and mates are impressed how well Brendan can draw, and always said his drawing is nice. Brendan feel very proud and confident about this.

Danielle Robertson

This is Emeys 3rd yr going to Realisticus, this yr her art has developed alot into her own personal style, a sweet, chic animation style. Her art is more polished, detailed and proportionate. She is able to draw her vision and execute it how she wants now instead of feeling frustrated she cant create what she see's in her mind. Emey is drawn to art and helps ground her when she is feeling overwhelmed. She often gets lost for hours just drawing and painting.

Polly Inch

Our son has been attending classes at Realisticus Art Academy for nearly a year and we couldn’t be more pleased with the course and his teacher, Lillibet. While he has always been keen on drawing and painting, these classes have really honed his skills – his drawings and painting are more detailed, his level of concentration has improved and he is really considered when choosing what he wants to draw. Naturally quite shy, the classes have also instilled within him a real confidence and sense of achievement which has been delightful to see. Most importantly though, he really enjoys them and looks forward with excitement to attending. We would highly recommend Realisticus Art Academy to any young artists.

Ashwini Deshpande

My daughter Saawani has improved on her drawing skills since she has joined the Academy. It's her first full term and already I can see improvement in her drawing strokes and her choice of colours. This has also helped her to boost her confidence and contribute significantly in the art club at her school. Some of her paintings at school have been displayed around the school and her work and contribution has been acknowledged by the school. The art work she entered in the exhibition (mermaid with cat face) was her idea of being unique and different.

Jihan Ghassani

My daughter was so fascinated with the colouring techniques.She didn't think that there are so many different ways you can colour the drawing! She was eager to be on time, never miss a class and do her homework while trying to remember the teacher's tips and instructions. Never seen my daughter passionate about a class like these art classes. Thank you Realisticus team

Jie Li

My son, Xingbei, has been with art class for two term. He's more dedicated with things he focuses than before. I think this is the biggest benifit he's been got from the art class. Besides, he really likes drawing as he always gets drawing kit prepared by himself and spends time in drawing, with sometimes suprising us with his own art work.

Nikki Harrison

To begin with our daughter was very nervous and shy about her work. But she has grown in confidence and concentration as well as in ability. She is able to apply the techniques she learns in class to her everyday drawing and work and as a parent it's fantastic to see. We have certainly noticed her attention to detail and perspective enhance as well as her ability to observe the world around her. While she is still sometimes shy, she is now also extremely proud of her accomplishments and it's so great to see she shine through her artwork.

Tiffany Paterson

Our daughter Emma has a natural drawing ability which Realistic Art Classes is helping to bloom to its full potential, she adores going to her art classes. Her confidence in her own abilities has improved and she has gained a lot more confidence in herself as well as more patience if she doesn't get it perfect the first try.


Over the years of learning drawing, Teresa has improved her skills not only in drawing, but also holding her pencil grip, she can writes beautifully, neat and tidy for her work. She is a confident person, and she enjoyed drawings. She draw very well at school, her teacher said to her she is a artist at her class. Teresa very proud of herself.

Kevin Lee

Leanne always enjoys drawings and have great time with Realisticus Art in 2018. Her drawing skills has improved during the year and she is more confident on coming up with drawing ideas. Thank you!

Michelle Forster

Caitlan has been attending art classes this year with Miss Fiona. From a shy little 5 year old I have seen her grow into a much more confident child who loves to express herself through her creativity and drawings. I have seen improvement in Caitlan’s ability to concentrate better and focus on the task at hand. Caitlan looks forward to her art classes each week and is proud to show us her artistic efforts which makes us so proud. Thank you Ms Fiona and Realisticus!

Nadia Clark

Alyssa always comes out of art class calmer and happier, she says it relaxes her and she likes to finish her week with art class. Her drawing confidence has grown, she will look up pictures of things she wants to draw then copy it. She has also entered poster competitions which is proof of her growing confidence. At school they had to redraw a dog enlarging it by a certain scale. Her teacher was very impressed at her acuracy and said it was best in class.

Ivy He

Teacher Lillibet is amazing! My daughter, Ashley has been to the art work class for almost 2 years, I can see she not only has improved the drawing skills and also built up a lots of confidence and the way that she use pens! Ashley also would like to say a THANK YOU to teacher Lillibet! xox

Hayley Stil

My daughter has always had a passion for art. I had reservations that art classes may not be very beneficial with the age group being quite broad and they don’t come cheap. Don’t let that deter you. The techniques she has learnt have really made her an exceptional little artist. Im so happy with Realisticus for helping her to gain so much confidence and necessary skills in her art.

Angel Wong

My 6 years old able to draw some really nice drawing since she started going to Realistics Art, always surprised me.

Trish Davidson

Our daughter (9) was struggling to find her way after moving from another country early in the year. In a bid to fill her afternoons and not have her sitting at home being sad, we discovered the art classes she now loves. Fast forward a couple of terms and she is settled, happy, relaxed and in every spare moment sits in front of my computer copying images she finds on google onto paper. Her little sister sits beside her doing the same thing which is magical.

Amy Choi

My son don't draw at home much, but one day he came back from school and told me that everybody loved his drawing at school, and also he will tought others to use drawing tools and skills. He was so proud of himself.

Alex Lu

Jamie has picked up lots drawing and paint skills, his interests for drawings is really high, he often asks me to find a picture on iPad and start copying and coloring the picture, Jamie’s favourate picture is Ninjago LEGO at the moment, once he completes the painting, he asks everyone’s opinion to see which Ninjago is the coolest one. I think jamie is really enjoying and passionate about drawing and painting, I would love to see him get more improvement and potentially learn more drawing skills and enjoy himself so much.

Xiao Li

Ethan started drawing when he was 5. He learnt to draw his favorite animals-Orca, dolphin and he also learnt how to bring his imaginations into colorful artworks. He really enjoyed every class with Maya. Thanks to Maya for teaching my boy.


for the past years with the class the girls start showing great improvement of their drawing, and had a nice hand writing with their ability improved. They are really enjoyed the class and also can apply what they learnt at home at their spare time.

Olivia Tech-Orias

The art classes helped Jodi improved her drawing proportion, shading and colour combinations. She's getting more confident in adding details and textures to give that 3D effect and making it look more realistic.

Sandra Yan

Both my kids love drawing , they learned so much.
