Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) unveils its new creative arts college at Sungei Wang Plaza. This is in line with the government’s initiatives to spur the growth of the arts and cultural development in Malaysia.
According to a report by My Performing Arts Agency, the Klang Valley creative industries contributed RM8.99 billion to the country last year; making up 2% to the Klang Valley economy.
Since its establishment in 1998, SCCA has evolved from an exclusive hairdressing and makeup institute to broaden its offerings. New additions include Fashion Design, Retail Business Management as well as New Media & Communication (major in Filming & Performing Arts) courses. The college places a heavy focus on imaging, which includes prosthetic makeup and fashion wardrobe for filming.
SCCA has exclusively partnered with the established fashion school from Italy, Instituto DiModa Burgo (IMB), and the world’s third best Filming Academy, Beijing Film Academy (BFA). These will be building a direct link for Malaysian talents to expand into the international arena.
Through its partnerships, the College aims to elevate Malaysian talents into the elite Milan Fashion World; as well as provide a solid pathway for talents in Malaysia to access the Asian film market. SCCA’s retail business management course aims to guide students in managing a creative business efficiently. This course content is based on high profile industry inputs from managers and business owners who have substantial experience in the sector.
Dato’ Mike Loh, Founder of SCCA, said, “Over the course of the years, SCCA has evolved into a prominent college in Creative Arts. Complacency has no room in our business ethics and so, we have strived to position ourselves as a one-stop college for all things creative to hone our Malaysian budding talents.”
“Today, we are proud to unveil our new courses on Fashion Design, Film & Imaging production and Business Management. We believe that these industries have strong potentials and this is evident with the growth of the fashion world as well as the film industry,” added Dato’ Mike.
SCCA has been progressing towards the government’s initiatives b continuously refreshing its creative arts offerings in a bid to develop it as a vital component of the nation’s economy. With the new additions, SCCA now offers courses in Italian Fashion Design, Talent Development (Performing Arts), Film Production, Business Management besides Beauty Technology along with several other short curriculum. The college is also open toward expansion into post-production and digitisation in the pipeline.
