Art Jamming ...

Recently, I was involved in an art jamming workshop as part of my company's team-building event. The term 'Art Jamming' seems very alien to me and moreover, I am not into arts. In fact, I am very lousy in arts !! Anyway, what I learnt from the workshop was that art jamming was simply a spontaneous expression of your feelings in art forms. You just draw whatever you like on a piece of cloth using acrylic paints, which dried very fast, and the results of the art represented your mood or feelings. It's very therapeutic and stress releasing too. Of course, I believe usually folks who love arts will book a session at the centre to paint. There were a few artists there when we arrived and there was also a cafe at the beautiful glassy centre, which was surrounded by water everywhere from the pool. We were at My Art Space.

An outdoor seating area at the centre

A view from the top ...an artist was working on her pieces

We are surrounded by water everywhere !
 Some of the amateurish arts done by my colleagues.... which I felt they are very well done!







And here's what my group did ... probably we are thinking of the zoo then! LOL

Check out the panda which I draw... :P
Overall, I find that it's a very therapeutic session and before this, I have been to a clay moulding workshop few years ago, which was also very relaxing and stress releasing.

Have a good week!!

  12. Actually painting is quite relaxing, can release stress and also can train our patient as well!! I was thinking to learn that, but that got to wait until I've learned another instrument first, hehe!! I like the owl you drew btw!!
