I have a fondness when it comes to anything artsy. Although, I wouldn’t really say I’m creative, I just admire creative works of art. I remember, I even bought a set of acrylic paint complete with brushes and easel back when I was young. Feel na feel ko na ako si Da Vinci! I wish I had the opportunity to attend art classes, siguro if I did, I’d probably be an illustrator or a painter. Naks. But you know what, it’s not too late. I together with my lil’ Ms. GJG got to experience a mom and daughter session at GlobalArt.
We visited GlobalArt along Ortigas Avenue. It was actually Gabbie who got invited, saling pusa lang ako. Heehee.
The aim of GlobalArt is to enhance the untouched potential of an individual. GlobalArt believes that art should have a special place in our education system if that system is truly dedicated to explore and develop the human intellect and creativity.
I know a lot of smart people, kids and adults alike. But I only know a few people who are creative. I think that not all institutions have programs that focus on enhancing one’s creative side. With GlobalArt, that is exactly what they’re aiming for.
Would you believe four, five and six year olds did these? Amazaballs. Okay, biglang nagka-inferiority complex ako! Hahahay!
Apart from proper colouring and drawing, Global Art also offers clay sculpting. This fun medium lets children be imaginative by building 3D models.Here’s Gabbie with GlobalArt buddy Anika.
The two eager beavers were so excited to color.
Here they are getting instructions, listening intently to Teacher Yam.
They also tried clay sculpting. Here’s Gabbie with her minion creation. GlobalArt’s clay is soft and lightweight which is perfect for toddlers like Gabbie who likes creating miniatures of all sorts. While the kids had fun with their activity, it was my time to enjoy. I choose to do acrylic painting of my logo.
Let me tell you, acrylic is not an easy medium. It takes precision in order for you to paint inside the lines. Hindi sya like painting a room ha. Details are very crucial if you want to make your artwork stand out.
My work-in-progress art.
Here’s Gabbie & Anika with their works of art!
To show you how creative the students of GlobalArt are, here is one of the activities each student is given. They would have to create a scene or picture depicting a story behind it. There is no limit to their imagination as long as their art can fit in that sheet of white paper and have used the pictures included, such as the chickens on the upper part of the worksheet.
Viola! Look at how creative these kids are. I love the chickens in outer space. How imaginative is this?! Chicken aliens!
After 48 years! Haha hindi naman, about 2 hours in the making, my art is finished!
While Fleur’s art is a glass jar which she plans on using as a pen holder.
Teacher Jay with GlobalArt owner Yenny Saw, Fleur and Anika, Gabbie & I. Thank you so much for the wonderful morning filled with creativity and fun!
Here’s my final work of art. What do you guys think? Achieve naman? 😀 Thank you Teacher Jay for being patient with me in painting those little circles. Bakit ba kasi circle pa pinili ko! Heehee.
I’m giving this out to a lucky reader of mine plus free art class from GlobalArt. No contest na to. I will just surprise you via a tweet, an Instagram post or on my Facebook page. Surprise talaga to! Yay!
