About the Trial:
This trial class is a free and easy drop-in for any student between the ages of 6-12 to experience a typical ‘Mind of 9’ lesson. For the main purpose of providing an authentic insight into how the classes will run so that students may grasp a feel as to whether it is to their liking. The trial class will coincide with ongoing weekly classes taking place every Saturday from 10am-12pm. Trial students will learn alongside official students depending on what lesson the current batch of official students are currently in – to also foster potential bonds and kinship between students.
- We offer 24 lessons in total
- Should you decide to attend lesson 4 as a trail:
You will experience the final lesson of Playnting
- Should you decide to attend lesson 7 as a trail:
You will experience the third lesson of Doodling
- Should you decide to attend lesson 20 as a trail:
You will experience the final lesson of Clay Sculpting
Any student who attends any class, regardless of their status as a trial or official student, will be provided the same materials and content for their own experiential learning.
We hope to provide a seamless trial experience for prospective students keen to join the full ‘Mind of 9’ program of 24 lessons hence the freedom to drop-in at any given point as long as there is an official class taking place.
Feel free to contact us should you have any and all queries!
About the Instructor:
In February 2016, Khaitama invented an art technique which he later coined ‘Playnting’; where one paints with drumsticks. This can either be done solely or in unison with orthodox painting tools.
Being a drummer himself, Khaitama can attest that drummers are in a world of their own when consumed by emotions as they perform a song. As such, he wanted to visualise the raw energy of a drummer and how their emotions are transferred via the drumsticks and onto the drums. The mix of music and visual arts in terms of drumming and painting allows Khaitama to seamlessly express how they feel, be it his own or of his subject, through the fluid yet aggressive, and at times subtle, motions of the drumsticks.
Playnting is also a performance art where one ‘Playnts’ (Playing and Painting) to songs, visualises the drum beats and creates a piece that is spontaneous and original. His technique is very versatile — he can take his time to create an artwork, or speed paint it onstage as a performance art.
When viewers see his art, he wants them to feel the pure emotions that he has embedded within; to see Khaitama as how he truly is.
Ultimately with his artistic journey, Khaitama hopes:
To launch and spearhead a new art movement of multi-sensory engagement that is holistic and humane — for the purpose of each individual to better understand and empower themselves, as well as others. Playnting is an introspective and communal language which is therapeutic and lots of fun!
