Moved: Basic Sketching Workshop for Kids (Nov 8, 2014)

Do you remember this?

Sketching 1

Me, I do. And I failed terribly at this. I was not that bad in arts but for as for sketching, this was probably the most difficult one for me. BOOHOO. But I believe I still managed to pass that subject anyway. Obviously. 😛

But nonetheless, it would have been soo much better if I was actually good at it. I do envy people who know how to draw. There are just soo many things that I would like to draw, but since I never really learned how to, I never did.

Because of this, and just with our luck, a sketching teacher approached us and asked us if we would like to hold Sketching Workshops for kids. And of course, we said yes! This is an opportunity for kids out there to learn, some may probably learn more and practice this skill.
