Marlina and I had a wonderful art session this afternoon. Joseph from Monster Gallery was so sweet to arrange a special workshop for us when we could not attend one of his earlier sessions.
It was a 2 hour workshop and time really passed by so quickly as Marlina and I were enjoying and also getting stressed out over our artwork. We have not had the luxury of sitting down and working our art juices for leisure for a long time. Sure, we have done lots of art sessions with children but it was more facilitating rather than being completely immersed and involved in the process. I must say it was really therapeutic for me and I might start blocking time out for myself and call it “Arty Hour”.
Joseph started off by explaining to us the different ways to screen print and showed us some of the lovely works from his other class as well as his own. He also gave us tips where we should look out for in our drawings so that we could get the outcome that we wanted. We took a while drawing our pictures and transferring it to the screen and blocking out spaces with a filler. Almost an hour and a half and passed by and we were finally done with all that prepping.
Voilà, c’est fini.
We were very excited and happy with the print on our bags. And after class, we went off to get supplies to make more prints. Keep tuning in…
Thank you so much, Joseph, for conducting such an enjoyable and memorable workshop for us.
All work and no play makes Jane a dull girl (since we are made up of XX chromosome, I chose Jane over Jack).
In our welcome post, we mentioned that most of our days are spent with our children as we are stay at home moms, and so, this page is dedicated to Family Fun. This page is dedicated to arts and crafts, baking and little activities that we do with our children.
Come, step into our Family fun space and journey with us. We hope you will enjoy and be inspired to also create new memories with your little ones.
Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. Thus, the Jelly Bean Attic was born..
We are three mothers with six young children (and i more on the way!), four dogs, a kitten, two turtles and many fishes between us. It was our love for hand crafting personal gifts to friends and family that brought us together to start Jelly Bean Attic. Our collection is catered for the family, friends, and even the home.
As we are stay at home mothers to young children, most of our day is spent visiting zoos, marine life parks, or museums, playing in the park, and doing arts and crafts. Our working hours are when our children are napping or sleeping. Come dusk, we work happily like elves toiling away through the night creating special pieces for you.
As mothers of young kids, we explored the world of messy play and process art over the past 4 years. Recently, we have found a calling to share our experiences with other young parents by facilitating toddler art workshops at museums and parks.
If this makes you curious, please visit our website www.jellybeanattic.com to browse around and see our collections.
In this blog, we look forward to sharing the latest news happening in Jelly Bean Attic, family related activities and inspirations with you. We always welcome your feedback and comments.
