The Afsana Arts Weekend 2015 took place from 31 Oct to 1 Nov. The weekend had 4 events:
- Gurmukhi Calligraphy workshop
- Photography Basics workshop by instructors Sukhmindar Singh, Andrew J K Tan and Pervinder Singh
- Hair and Makeup workshop by Bubbly J from Looks Studio
- Art Jam (Painting workshop) at Arteastiq
It was an eye opener for some and a chance to exercise those creative arts muscles in all of us! Here are some pictures of the workshops that were attended by people from all age groups who came together to have an artsy weekend!
Gumukhi Calligraphy workshop
Participants were provided with templates and practice sheets to guide them in picking up some of the finer skills in calligraphy. With practice, many of them eventually walked home with a framed piece of their self drawn Gurmukhi calligraphy!
Photography Basics workshop by instructors Sukhmindar Singh, Andrew J K Tan and Pervinder Singh
Photography enthusiasts gathered to hear tips and tricks from experts before heading out for a guided hands-on photography walk in Little India. The group returned and shared their photos with each other, and described how they applied what they learnt during the walk, with the experts offering further suggestions for them to practice on.
Hair and Makeup workshop by Bubbly J from Looks Studio
Ladies of all ages came together for a chance to hear from an experienced fashion designer and makeup artist to understand the principles and techniques in looking their individual best. Not only did they walk away with new ideas to try at home, each participant walked away with a goodie bag filled with products for them to add to their toolkits!
Art Jam (Painting workshop) at Arteastiq
Getting in touch with their creative inner selves, budding painters had small bites to munch on while they brushed their imagination into reality. It was a an amazing family bonding experience with beautiful art pieces coming from the little ones and incredible detailed work from the practised elders!
