Art Programs

Sylvia Chan Art School offers a variety of fun and creative art classes in Markham for children, teens and adults at all levels, starting at age 3. Beginner classes are step by step with guided demonstration and instruction, while advanced students choose their own subject matter. Teen classes are portfolio development based, mentoring them towards their artistic dreams.

Children classes are geared toward helping them learn the basic drawing and painting foundations. The art classes run all year long and take place once a week on weekdays, evenings, or weekends. The children classes are from 3 years old to 11 years old

Teen Classes are Portfolio Development Focused, where the teacher guide students to build their portfolio pieces for art high schools or universities. Many of our students have gotten scholarships and grants because of their portfolios. The art classes run all year long and take place once a week on weekdays, evenings, or weekends. The teen classes are from 12 years old to 20 years old

Adult classes can be 12 sessions long, or once every weekday or weekend. It’s never too late to master art skills. The largest obstacle that people have is not knowing that they can easily learn how to create art. Adult classes run once a week on either a weekday or weekend. Adults learn a subject of their choice.

Student Artwork

“Sylvia’s art classes have helped me a lot because she like to take my opinion on what I want to focus on or what I want to draw and paint about. She has helped me get more involved. Her art classes are also a “Here’s how you do it , now try it for yourself “ instead of telling me do this and that and this. She also talk to me to keep me entertained”
“Ms. Chan is a great teacher and she is amazing with kids, my kids drawing skills improved a lot and they were able to learn basic concepts like shading, Cross Hatching Technique, Water Colour – Lands scape and Animals. They were able to focus, enjoy and learn to be patient which is the most needed skill for success. I would strongly recommend Ms.Chan for anybody who is looking into learning art :)”

“I requested an art piece for my boyfriend’s Birthday/Christmas. He loves soccer and when I saw the work that Sylvia does, I knew it would be the perfect way to honor what he does. Sylvia was great to work with because she actually spoke to my boyfriend to get an idea of his personality and preferences before creating the work. Her delivery of the painting was professional yet personal; you don’t feel like you’re being handed over a commercial product. My boyfriend, and everyone else I showed, was in awe with the painting. If you’re looking for a really different sort of gift for someone that they will love, I definitely recommend speaking to Sylvia and ordering your painting.”

“My wife and I really love Sylvia’s work. The colours, technique, subject poses, and flowing hair are intriguing and alluring unlike anything we have seen. As a result, we commissioned Sylvia to do a very large painting for us. She took our idea and put her magic to work to produce a beautiful piece that is prominently displayed in our family room which can be viewed from our living room and kitchen as well. We also have one of her originals. We are more than pleased and follow her work on Facebook.”

“Your work on the painting I requested absolutely blew my mind!!! Shes gorgeous. I have carried that picture with me for almost a decade waiting for the right person to create it. I’m not sure how you did it, but you made my painting more beautiful and vibrant then the original picture!! I’m absolutely in love with it. I’ll be in touch when I decide on my next piece of artwork that I fall in love with!! “
