The experience aims to invoke the senses, there will be aroma therapy for relaxation and soft music on the background for a truly therapeutic experience. We will start with cakes, local snacks (which we call 'kueh') and floral tea. I will also share my background, on how I picked up this hobby and why I continued with it. Thereafter, I will do a simple demonstration to show how I mix my water colors and draw on an empty canvas (trust me everyone will be able to do this!). You will learn how to get the paint consistency right, a skill I obtained from my own trial and errors. Thereafter we will all work on our own unique piece to have fun and create different art with various perspective. The experience consists of a small group (Max. 7 persons), to ensure the experience is not diluted and there will be a chance for 1 to 1 advices on paint mixing and brush strokes. At the end of it, you see that art is for everyone and feel empowered to proceed with the experience as a therapeutic journey. You bring back not just an art piece and a starter pack but a skill that would last a lifetime.
Some of us (including myself) are afraid to pick up a paint brush, because we are afraid that we will not 'draw as well as others', or we feel embarrassed to show our art to others because we felt inadequate. But we fail to acknowledge that art has no score and no boundaries. I aim to change that perspective and empower everyone to take a chance with art to enjoy the liberty that comes with it! I create at @cacleegraphy (instagram and facebook) as a freelance artist and I am excited to share the art of water colouring as a form of stress relieving and self therapy for a busy lifestyle.
