Art is the product of creativity and creativity brings innovation.
Crowds circulated and cameras flashed as Montessori De Sagrada Familia (MDSF) tied up with Artist3 Art School to showcase Sagradans’ creativity and imaginativeness in an art exhibit held at the MDSF Social Hall, June 27-30.
Aiming to be a learning hub for creativity and innovation, MDSF organized the first ever art exhibit that highlighted masterpieces close to the heart of the artists. It featured varieties of pencil drawing illustrations accomplished using oil pastels and acrylic paintings. Few digital portraits could also be seen in the display.
Miss Charmaine R. Nacario, a former MDSF teacher, together with Mr. Sherwin D.C. Gacula, an art teacher and co-founder of Artist3, coached and trained the Sagradan artists to uncover and discover their imaginative side by giving an avenue to a bursting seed of creativity and skills within them. The training was conducted last summer vacation in an art workshop called “Artsplash 2017”.
According to Nacario, most of the artists in the exhibit were first timers and started from zero. Their masterpieces were products of their hardwork and willingness to be trained in a very short period of time. Moreover, she believed that this exhibit heightened the artists’ confidence and encouraged them to continue pursuing their passion for arts and design.
In addition, Artist3 and MDSF will continue to work together to bring out each Sagradans’ hidden talent in visual arts, likewise, to express one’s ideas and feelings into something optical and tangible.
Artist3 Art School provides multilevel art enrichment programs that are suitable for the students with diverse needs. They include creative illustration, drawing and sketching, acrylic painting, digital art, poster making and editorial cartooning contest training.
Furthermore, the art show organizers encouraged the teachers to engage themselves in different art activities as it plays a vital portion of their day-to-day instruction.
