About  Us

Our Story


The Fort Studios was founded by Denise Jillian Tan, a professional artist and educator with a specialization in painting.

We are a hand-picked team of highly skilled and experienced teaching artists who seeks to lead a community of art enthusiasts, educators and practitioners to discover and share their love of art, and to engage in and grow our vibrant art scene. We are committed to serving all art enthusiasts in our community through quality learning programmes and creative services to find personal fulfillment in visual art, and to nurture lifelong learning in art.

If you share our passion and would like to partner with us, drop us a line here!
