ATC in Dec 2016

We had an explosion of colours creating molas inspired ATCs. Molas is a form of fabric art from Pananma.

The collection of Present theme ATCs was also fantastic. The theme was interpreted in many ways including as gift, being present and present time.

We are also in the thick of our preparation for our exhibition in March next year. It is getting exciting.

The next meeting is on 12 Jan 2017 and the theme is Rooster.

ATC - Oct and Nov 2016

This is a catch-up for the 2 ATC sessions held last month and this month at Bishan Library.

In October, we tried some "magic" painting with this special paper that allows water to appear like ink. It was fun. We also had quite a few lovely cards for the theme of "Window" including one with the Windows logo. 

For November, Mdm Au taught us to quill these lovely hummingbirds. There were also attractive "Something Red" ATCs and our librarian brought out books with covers that have something red too.

We were also mentioned in a town council newsletter.

We have also starting preparing for an exhibition in March 2017 and we hope to bring the ATCs into a senior home or two after the exhibition. Isn't that cool? Look out for more about the ATC Adding Tremendous Cheer exhibition.

Join us on 8 Dec at 7 pm. The inspirational theme is "Present".

It has been a while since I last responded to an Illustration Friday prompt. An acrylic painting on a small canvas.

ATC - Sep 2016

How about doing some abstract art?

We stretched the idea of "abstract art" a little. After making a drawing, we "de-constructed" by cutting it up and then "re-compose" it.

Look at the intriguing pieces that we were able to create. We also made a link to non-linear narratives in novels.

For the trading of ATCs, we have quite a few to choose from, including those from first-timers. The inspiration theme was "Eye/See".

That's me sharing about the ATCs I have brought for the trade. Thanks Selina for the photo.

And these are the beautiful ATCs I have just added to my collection.

Quite a few of the regulars were not feeling well for this evening. Hope they all get better real soon.

We also explored a possible exhibition project to work on for the months ahead. More details soon.

ATC - Aug 2016

For the August session, we asked those who have been attending for a while to bring their collection of ATCs that they have collected. It was interesting and nostalgic seeing each other's older artwork. We have also seen how we have grown in our artmaking.

There was also a nice lot of ATCs that were made for exchange for this month. The inspiration theme was "Star".

We had time to say something about what we have brought before we traded.

As for the art-making this month, we tried out found poetry. The librarian has very kindly photocopied a few pages from different books for us to work with.  Look at the fabulous work that we created.

ATC - July 2016

It sure is good to be back with the group. Despite the absence for 3 years, it was such a good time creating art together again.

This evening, we tried out pixel art. As much as it sounds like something from the current digital age, it is really what cross-stitch and beaded slippers use as well. 

Of course, we had some great trades with the theme of landmark. 
Here are my 2 ATCs for this themes.

Our next theme is "Star". We will meet on 11 Aug.

See you at Bishan Library from 7 to 8.30 pm.
