One to be Creative

I saw this post that really spoke to me. It was by Word Porn, one of the pages I like in Facebook, and it said:

Find three hobbies you love:

One to make you money,

One to keep you in shape,

And one to be creative.

 

In a quest to find one of these hobbies, I decided to spend an entire day to learn more about calligraphy. There was this calligraphy fair sponsored by National Bookstore, a well-known bookstore in the Philippines. True to the event title, you will find yourself having some love for the art due to several reasons. One, it’s difficult not to get infected by how passionate the artists, the mentors, the guests, and the fellow participants are. Two, you get to experience it right there and then. There were tables filled with art materials that you could use as the mentors speak on stage about the various techniques, different mediums, and, the many ways to develop your own style. Three, you get to witness (and ย feel a little jealous of) these master artists at work. You get to watch in awe how these phenomenal works-of-art are brought to life by these amazing and tireless artists. I left the event truly exhilarated by the experience and inspired to get started on that third hobby. ๐Ÿ’™

Note: This is a very late post on a calligraphy fair I attended early this year.

Modern-day Museums

Gone are the days when museum art was just supposed to be looked at. Some were not even allowed to be touched or photographed. Back then, boredom was almost always a given.

What’s becoming popular nowadays are ย 3D art museums like Art in Island Museum in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines. Here, you get to interact with art. You get to try your best poses and your acting prowess while you and your friends take pictures in the different areas in the museum. Your photography skills gets polished too as you look for the best angles to make each picture come to life (if you don’t have much, worry not; the floors have guides on where to take the best photos).

For the kids and kids-at-heart, fun is inevitable in modern-day museums like this.
