Multi-unit candidates will be considered.
LHS is an unique creative concept that comprises of 3 units: Education, Design and Corporate. At its heart is a premier art and wine studio for BYOB art classes, private parties, corporate events and team building activities. LHS artists guide our clients through the creative process and help them complete artwork during the heARTJam sessions.
In addition to adult offerings, we conduct school bootcamps for children ages 5 and up as well as themed birthday parties, perfect for kids and adults.
Owners who invest in our art studio franchise have access to a wide variety of classes, artistic creations, parties and events to fill your studio with guests from morning till evening making the most of your retail studio space and your business investment.
Owners who buy into our concept are actually having the best of 3 worlds- having a creative consultation unit to do design and branding services, an education platform that combines the best of traditional art and digital mediums and finally a corporate teambonding solutions provider in addition to a normal unit.
When we decided to open our Havelock 2 studio, the CBD welcomed us with open arms. We had created an outlet for self-expression, a place to go with friends, host a party or conduct professional teambonding events with co-workers.
By 2019, people were asking us when they could open their own studio. Now that opportunity is here and we are ready to support our franchise owners, while they realize their dream of owning their own business.
Over these past 3 years, we have worked with the top calibre of people, SMEs and corporates, from the likes of governmental organisations such as Singhealth, MOM to the corporate giants like Google and Facebook teams, we have repeatedly served with passion, conviction and professionalism- now we seek to impart all these to the next owners.
Lionheart Studio’s mission is to create a indoor haven, replete with greenery, comfortable and casual utopia where attendees can enjoy creating art regardless of their artistic level, background or age. We believe artistic self-expression is a great way to nurture a healthy outlet and relieve stress of daily life and our goal is to provide a friendly and affordable environment for anyone to experience this.
We are looking for owner candidates who believe in our mission and want to be a part of their local community, owning a studio of their own.
