Workshops & Other Programmes

June Holidays 2023: Pen to Palette 

A 5-day Literature and Art Camp:

Write and Illustrate Your Own Book!


Join us for Pen to Palette, a unique programme designed for young artists and writers who are looking to explore the fantastical world of Leonora Carrington's art and stories. Through this programme, your children will learn how to appreciate and analyse Carrington's craft, while also learning various writing techniques to create their own imaginative stories.


But that's not all! Your children will also have the opportunity to bind and illustrate their stories, bringing their creations to life. And, to truly bring out their inner artist, they'll also learn ink and watercolour techniques to add colour and texture to their artwork.  

Ages: 7-16 years old

Pricing: $550 10% off for existing Lil’ Palette & Chapter One students; Sassymama promotion applies

Open Writing Studio (OWS)

This is the only programme of its kind in Singapore and is the brainchild of our founder, Michelle, who has always believed that writing is a lifelong skill. It should be fun, wild and free. The skills attained and developed during this session will flow into your child's more academic pieces. So, yes! It does benefit them in their school compositions!

During the 60-minute Open Writing Studio session, your child is given the autonomy to explore different writing styles of his/her desire, from narrative to non-narrative. Instead of the usual PSLE style writing, your child now gets the chance to write even fantasy stories infused with magic, and more!


The purpose:

  1. to bring children of different ages together to write freely and creatively. Cousins, friends and siblings are most definitely allowed to attend this together.

  2. to give your child an exhilarating taste of other writing genres. Schools do not always allow certain styles of writing, so this is their chance to truly play with words. This is like an art jam, but it'll be in the form of writing.

  3. to help your child realise that writing is not a chore. It is a magical and fun process. Through this, your child gains interest and confidence in writing.

All ages
