A teacher whose teaching is based on *Show and Tell*. I showed remarkable improvement and always looking forward to do up another painting upon completion of one. Especially I’m exploring, painting my favorite eagles.
I'm excited and humbled when people gave a Wow look at my finished art piece. He is Never pushy.
A very approachable, affirming and encouraging teacher.
I’m so blessed to be his student.
Joining Art Dimension Studio has been the best thing ever, especially learning from a great artist, Shan. He really elevates my skills and show me different perspectives on how to finish a masterpiece. He is also very generous in imparting his skills and knowledge to his students, I really appreciate how he guides me in seeing the final details about my painting.
The friendly environment is a plus point. Vicki is very helpful and friendly and makes all members feel very welcomed like family. I really enjoy myself and will continue coming back for many years to come.
Shan is a talented artist and a patient teacher. As someone who has high self-doubt when it comes to drawing and painting, my confidence and progress in this area has greatly improved. Always looking forward to my weekly lesson.
Shan lao shi, a humble passionate talented artist, his willingness to teach, to impart his drawing skill and technique to any of his students has definitely benefited me and inspired me to fulfill my childhood dream to draw and paint. Thank you, art teacher Shan, for your patience and encouragement, it’s fun and enjoyable being in your class!
Shan is a patient and humble artist who is willing to share his valuable painting tips with others. Under his guidance, I have learnt to appreciate art with a broader mindset. His teaching approach allows me to be bold in making mistakes during my learning process and leads me to create more interesting art pieces. I am thankful that Shan also conducts short art courses/workshops that provide me the opportunities to explore different art techniques.
I joined Shan’ class 9 months ago and is into my 5th oil painting. I must say I have never imagined I could paint and am fascinated with the results of my art works. All these could not be possible without Shan. It has been a very satisfying journey for me. Lots of credit to Shan as he is a very patient, encouraging, passionate, artistic and talented teacher. Shan is a truly talented artist whose simple suggestion could improve on the outcome of the painting drastically. I am thankful to my friend who referred me to join his class. Time spent in his class passes like a lightning and I always look forward to come for his lessons.
I first picked up a paint brush four years ago. Back then art class was just for fun and relaxation. I started to show interest and focus during class because of my art instructor Shan’s encouraging words and patience guidance. He taught me that shades and lights are the very basic foundation of every painting and so is color, tones, strokes and blending. And most importantly is focus and patience. With all that in mind, my next few paintings had shown great improvement, especially my first self-portrait and most recently the white and black Buddha oil painting. It was like a great achievement to me! I couldn’t have progressed and improved so fast without Shan’s skillful, experienced and relentless guidance. Now Art painting has become my next new passion.
算来时间过的好快，成为Shan的学生已经3年多了，我很庆幸在学画伊始就遇到Shan这样的老师 — 技术高超、富有洞察力而且耐心。他了解每个学生的特点，给予有针对性的指导。他很敏锐，明晰的表达让学生很容易明白自己问题的所在。他鼓励学生独立思考大胆探索，也给予出色的示范。
In 2008, I started learning oil painting under Shan. He was a young man who just started his career as an artist after learning his craft in France. I still remember he was very shy. Over the last 12 years, Shan has matured and grown a lot as an artist as well as a teacher. I have seen how his art work has improved and recent years he has developed a unique style for portrait, which I would describe as realism set in a contemporary style. Today, Shan is very confident as a teacher. He is very patient and “generous” in teaching and imparting his techniques with his students. Besides being a talented and experienced artist, Shan has a great passion in teaching students. Under him, I have learnt and improved so much. I started this hobby without any background or talent. I could not even paint an apple properly in the first year. Under Shan’s guidance, I have completed many paintings, including portraits which I consider hardest to do. Every time I attend class, I still learn new things from him. Shan has tirelessly encouraged and pushed me to improve my work. Thank you, Shan, for all your guidance and I look forward to learning more things from you.
I have been thinking of painting since my school days 45 years ago. When I finally decided to give it a go, I was fortunate to have Shan as my teacher.
Shan is a talented artist with an immense heart to teach and to share his knowledge. He is a skillful artist who is extremely sharp in pointing out what could be improved in my paintings, demonstrating how to set the color tone and contrast, and the appropriate brushstrokes and technique to create the desired effect.
As a teacher, Shan is approachable, providing exhaustive answers to all of my questions and creating a learning atmosphere that is familiar and comfortable. He is kind and supportive, giving me the space to express my creativity and imagination.
It has been 3 years since I’ve had Shan as my teacher and I have benefited greatly from his patience and sincere guidance. Shan is instrumental in improving my painting skills and enabling me to enjoy painting. As a beginner, my confidence has grown and I feel inspired to become an artist one day. Thank you, Shan.
Attending painting class every week at Art Dimension studio is always a pleasant experience.
The group size is kept small to ensure that Wen Shan is able to give sufficient time, attention and guidance to everyone. Unlike some art studios where instructors would just walk around and tell you how to improve your painting, Wen Shan shows you exactly how to do it so that you actually improve.
In addition, Vicki is like an old friend - warm, attentive and accommodating. You feel like you are walking into a good friend’s place each time and quickly forget the time you spend there.
Art Dimension Studio is a natural choice if bringing out your artistic talents in a safe, friendly and cozy place is what you are looking for.
A good teacher can give constructive comments and your art improves because of that. It’s difficult to find such an instructor especially in a field like art when it can be subjective. But Shan is just one such teacher. No matter your medium or subject of your art work, Shan is always able to give tips that everyone will agree improve your art! Join this studio if you want to see the fruit of your labor improving with every new piece of work!
Art Dimension is a nurturing and fun environment that provides a space to explore the artist within each individual. Wen Shan is a very patient, warm and encouraging instructor who knows how to customize his approach and bring out the creative potential in each of his students. His artwork touches you deeply and his ongoing passion is always felt and shared by all who knows him. It’s exciting to learn and create art in a studio surrounded by inspiring artwork.
Art Dimension is a place for everyone. The learning environment is safe and judgement free under Wen Shan’s gentle guidance and unique sense of humors. He encourages a self-exploratory approach and facilitates individual’s progress based on personality and interest.
Many thanks to Shan, without his guidance I’ll not be able to achieve the results that I wanted for these paintings!
He's an inspirational and engaging teacher who instill confidence in his student's insecure artistic capabilities like me. He is actually the creative force behind all of us.
Shan is a highly talented, dedicated and patient teacher. Under his careful tutelage, I have not only honed my skills in painting but developed a deep appreciation of art and a keen eye for all the beauty around me.
Shan is an amazing professional art instructor with passion and dedication. He has a fantastic approach to effective teaching. I simply love the way he inspires learners to embrace art painting. I can promise you that Shan will not only put out 100% as a teacher, but will also motivates you to move forward. He always tell us that everyone has different styles, so therefore anything we attempt is viewed in a positive light. I find myself improved steadily under Shan's guidance and I look forward to the class every week.
Shan is a fantastic teacher, he can teach effectively. He is patient and very knowledgeable. He knows many different kinds of mediums and can bring out a student potential. He can help a student bring out their best. I have been his student for 5 years; my painting skill has greatly improved. Painting help me to express my emotion in a different way and is a very enjoyable hobby. I really appreciate all that I have learnt from Shan over the years.
Learning painting with Shan for many years have been a wonderful experience. I find the studio has some magical effect that will draw you back there every week. I will be in my own world after I start to paint and it also serve as a self-care to myself.
I have learned painting with Shan slightly less than two years. With no training in painting before, now l has definitely gained more confidence in both acrylic and oil paintings, and exploring my hidden creativity after being coached by teacher Shan. He has always been very patient with me and given lots of good advises on how to improve my appreciation on arts and skills on canvas. It is truly a blessing to be taught and guided by teacher Shan.
Shan is always patient & encouraging whenever I lost my patience & confidence in painting. I have learned quite a fair bit of technique from Shan in this one year of painting. He is a humorous teacher too & I often have a good laugh at his joke. Art Dimension studio is a place to learn, relax, play & enjoy arts.
I feel so grateful to have the opportunity joining Shan's art lesson two and half years ago. He is a very patient and experienced teacher who guided me along my learning journey. I started with zero knowledge in drawing and now I have confidence in doing oil painting on my own. Shan always gives us continuous encouragement and gradually push us to the next level when we are ready. Thank you, Shan.
Art is a very relaxing thing to do. I have always enjoyed creating art when I was in school but I did not pursue it after I left school. I never thought I would pick up the paint brush and start to express myself through art again. Just as a language can be lost if not spoken for years, the ability to paint or draw can be lost if not nurtured. But it returns quickly once you again immerse yourself in it. Now I feel so satisfied that I could put my emotions and imaginations into an artwork. The results are very encouraging though I'm still learning.
Art Dimension Studio is a warm and welcoming place where I enjoy discussing my artworks and sharing my ideas with Shan. He is a gifted artist and an inspiring teacher who has patients and enthusiasms in teaching art. He is a great teacher in my art journey, his encouragement and inspiration make me believe I can do more than what I think I can. To those of you who may have put art on hold for a while, know that it will come back. Be patient and continue to practice.
Shan is a wonderful teacher. Though strict, he is also patient and encouraging. Under his guidance, I think I can paint much better and have become more observant. I look forward to attending his lesson every week.
Shan is very talented and has the patience of a saint! He is an excellent teacher. He is positive and encouraging. What I like best is that he will show you the process from start to finish and sometimes with pieces of his own artwork. I personally have learned a lot especially painting with oil.
I have no hesitation of recommending anyone with an interest in art to join, they would never regret it.
Shan has been a wonderful teacher not only in learning techniques in the form of art but his positive outlook in life has taught me things which I could rarely learnt. Through the years under his pupillage, I have improved tremendously and we managed to foster a great friendship for many more years in this lifetime. Thank you Shan.
I was lucky to know about Shan and had the chance to learn from him! He is the best teacher. Master of his skill, yet so humble, calm and patient. He teaches lots of techniques in the class. He encourages to give the best finish to the artwork. I feel blessed to learn from him. Will join him again when I'm back in Singapore. Definitely would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn real art form!
Shan is an extremely patient teacher. I started thinking I cannot even draw much less paint, but Shan helped me overcome that. Shan is also very encouraging for me to experiment different concepts and painting mediums which made the lessons personally fulfilling. I would definitely recommend learning art with Shan. He is the best!
Art Dimension studio is definitely one of my favorite place for relaxation. Special thanks to my teacher, Shan who is always approachable and encouraging. He is willing to share interesting techniques to develop your skills and he never fail to boost your confidence in painting.
