DinoArt is a progressive multi-level program where our students explore different art mediums, such as:

  • Colouring and shading
  • Sketching and drawing
  • Clay molding and design
  • Batik painting


Benefits that Last a Lifetime

Did you know that art develops a child’s creative thinking and problem-solving abilities?
Children love making things and this artistic outlet will foster more than just the creative aspects of development in children… 

it strengthens right-brain development, open-ended thinking, problem-solving, self-expression which leads to increasing your child’s self-esteem.

Artistic activity is a form of reasoning, communication and organization, drawing on abstract thinking and perception.  As our DinoArt artists create through drawing, painting and composing images, they stimulate and develop key cognitive functions essential in child development.
DinoArt offers significant benefits in child development including:



  • Develop creativity, conceptual thinking and spatial awareness
  • Improve focus and concentration
  • Improve problem solving
  • Academic benefits include attention to detail, multi-tasking
  • Strengthen dexterity and fine-motor skills
  • Improve social skills


Creativity through art stimulates mental acuity

Do you still remember how great it felt when as a youngster you drew or painted a picture of your house in the spring or a favourite pet? Why did that feel good? Because you were tapping into your creative self, where creative skills flowed through your mind, developing visual manifestations of abstract ideas. Creativity is an essential part of intelligence.

Children love making things and this artistic outlet will foster more than just the creative aspects of development in children – it strengthens right-brain development, open-ended thinking, self-expression and it will strengthen your child’s self-esteem.






Our brain is divided into two hemispheres. The left one is responsible for reading, writing, arithmetic and science, rational and analytical thought. And the right hemisphere controls imagination, visual and spatial perception. It is dominant in art, music and physical movement.
Children learn best when both sides of their brains are stimulated.  Art enrichment through DinoArt provides that type of stimulations that boosts brain-power.

Creativity in art is an important skill that is invaluable at school, work, and everyday life.

Benefits and Results


Benefits that go beyond Math!

Our whole-brain development program builds foundational techniques that make learning math effortless and enjoyable. By mastering these techniques using the Abacus, students develop the ability to think in pictures and quickly learn to perform large calculations mentally. 
Over time, our students come to love a subject they may have once struggled with, or even feared. Attaining astonishing calculation speed is actually the end-result of increasing the “brain-fitness”.


Mental math is a building block for future success in all areas of study. Students learn to focus for sustained periods, to manage their time while completing long series of sums, to think in pictures, as well as, logically and to concentrate on more than one task at the same time while
performing at a high standard.


 These are crucial life skills that students will use again and again. The program activates key cognitive functions such as memory, attention, perception, symbolic learning and reasoning. UCMAS students become motivated learners – the best route
to success in academics and beyond.

UCMAS demands self-discipline and promotes the joy of lifelong learning and self-discovery. To succeed takes practice and commitment from the student, plus active support from the family. But the payoff is worth it.


At UCMAS, students:

Multitask

Solve problems

Identify key information

Time-Management

Concentrate on complex instructions

Imagine the Abacus in their visual memory

Perform complex mathematical calculations

Think in pictures to boost memory and recall

Training Methods


The UCMAS Difference: We Don’t Tutor, We Inspire with our Innovative Approach

UCMAS is not a tutoring centre. Our whole-brain development program builds foundational capabilities through a series of in-class training activities conducted by our trained class instructors. Our rigorous training techniques are based on pedagogical design by child development experts to ensure our students can benefit from and be successful in our program.

The UCMAS program improves math skills and promotes whole brain thinking through:




Thinking in Pictures Students boost memory power through visualization by holding

numbers in their mind while handling the physical or mental Abacus.


A Flash of Brilliance Students create a mental image of the beads on their mental Abacus

with the help of flash cards. Each student who completes the UCMAS program will have
memorized 450,000 images.



The Need for Speed
Speed training encourages children to listen attentively and respond to

questions quickly, sharpening their focus and concentration.


Building Mathematical Concepts

Manipulating the physical or virtual beads of the Abacus provides students with another frame of
reference to learn mathematical concepts, such as:

  • The base-ten number system
  • Number concepts and numeric relationships
  • Place values
  • Carrying and borrowing
  • Combinations and complements of numbers



These are mathematical building blocks that complement the curriculum used in Canada’s public and private schools. Our program supports and augments what students learn in school.

From a purely mathematical perspective, Abacus-based mental math makes any arithmetic a snap. Understanding math through the Abacus inspires new perspectives: children learn to subtract by adding; to multiply without multiplying; and to perform long division problems in their head faster than most people can add two numbers together.

 They can express large numbers simply, follow long streams of sums with ease and successfully incorporate compound numbers through the use of supplementary numbers for 5 and 10.

Our students learn techniques in Mental Math that will stay with them long after they’ve completed the program.

Left Brain vs Right Brain
















Left Brain Vs Right Brain


Here’s a quick overview of how the brain processes information.

Basic Characteristics of Left and Right brain:

In general, the left and right hemispheres of our brain process information in different ways. While we have a natural tendency towards one way of thinking, the two sides of our brain work together in our everyday lives. The right brain of the brain focuses on the visual, and processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous way, looking first at the whole picture then the details. The focus of the left brain is verbal, processing information in an analytical and sequential way, looking first at the pieces then putting them together to get the whole.

Left brain thinking is verbal and analytical. Right brain is non-verbal and intuitive, using pictures rather than words. The best illustration of this is to listen to people give directions. The left brain person will say something like “From here, go west three blocks and turn north on Vine Street. Go three or four miles and then turn east onto Broad Street.” The right brain person will sound something like this: “Turn right (pointing right), by the church over there (pointing again). Then you will pass a McDonalds and a Walmart. At the next light, turn right toward the Esso station.”

Though right-brain or non-verbal thinking is often regarded as more ‘creative’, there is no right or wrong here; it is merely two different ways of thinking. One is not better than the other, just as being right-handed is not ‘superior’ to being left-handed. What is important is to be aware that there are different ways of thinking, and by knowing what your natural preference is, you can pay attention to your less dominant side to improve the same.

By learning abacus through the systematic training approach at UCMAS, children can fully realize their potential by activating both sides of their brain. By consciously using the right side of our brain, we can be more creative. More so , because left brain strategies are the ones used most often in the classroom, right brain students sometimes feel neglected.

By activating the power of both hemispheres, a child will be able to retain knowledge better and become proficient in any subject, especially math.
Join now , it’s never too late to start!

Workings of Our Brain




The human brain is made up of two halves. These halves are commonly called the right brain and left brain , but should more correctly be termed ‘hemispheres’. For some reason, our right and left hemispheres control the ‘opposite’ side of our bodies, so the right hemisphere controls our left side and processes what we see in our left eye while the left hemisphere controls the right side and processes what our right eye sees.

The concept of right brain and left brain thinking developed from the research in the late 1960s of an American psycho biologist Roger W Sperry. He discovered that the human brain has two very different ways of thinking. One (the right brain) is visual and processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous way, looking first at the whole picture then the details. The other (the left brain) is verbal and processes information in an analytical and sequential way, looking first at the pieces then putting them together to get the whole. Sperry was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1981.

So as you know, the human brain consists of the right brain and the left brain. The shapes of these two parts are similar, but differences have been gradually found in their functions. The left brain is also referred to as the digital brain. It controls reading and writing, calculation, and logical thinking. The right brain is referred to as the analog brain. It controls three-dimensional sense, creativity, and artistic senses. These two work together, to allow us to function as humans.
