Artambay Sa South

Starting off with a series of artambay and get-togethers until the end of 2016.

It all started when I dropped by an artambay of some watercolor enthusiasts in Project Pie, SM North. I was in the area for errands that day and I clearly remember I was running around crazy, riding the MRT because Pokemon Go was finally available in the Philippines. However, I didn’t plan on going, it was a spur of the moment kind of thing. What could go wrong, no?

So I went in the store and went to the table with girls happily painting and chatting over a massive spread of paints, papers and brushes. It was a great experience and I even got to bring home prints and hand-lettered things from Enon de Belen, Inkblotsandpapercuts and Jomiladriell from Instagram! It was nice to put faces on IG names.

Since I’m from Laguna, I wanted that to happen in the South too!

Hence, Artambay Sa South or (A.S.S) for short (yes, it’s terrible humor).

We had the pleasure of doing this event at Porject Pie, Alabang.  For the first run we had 16 artist friends to join in the fun.

We showed them how to properly stretch paper for their painting preparations as seen below. On the table are also some of the sampler products of our generous friends from Art Nebula PH 14569867_1423403314339782_258149054_n

Just look at these beauts, a full arsenal of brushes! We got to test all of these!

TutubingKarayomPH also gave out sampler packs of different watercolor papers! I also gave out a sheet for swatching to participants so they can learn more about the process of analyzing watercolor traits.  14555922_1423403417673105_1331962538_n

We also had “Paint Time” where we painted small artworks for exchange.
Here are the artists painting away and lining up to see paint samplers and prints.

Many art prints and originals were exchanged as we were all in a frenzy sharing and receiving each others’ labor of love.

It was a successful event and I am humbled that a lot of people wanted to come together and share their interest for watercolor and art making. Look at their pretty smiles, seeing that when the event ended definitely made me happy and I am set on doing many more like this very soon! So join us!
