Chinese Lantern Exhibit by Chan Lim Family

 

Activities like drawing, painting, sculpting, and photography are relaxing and it can lower your stress levels and leave you feeling mentally clear and calm. We are lucky that we witnessed  the opening of Chan Lim’s Chinese Lantern exhibit last January 24, 2016  at SM City North Edsa.

On the spot Chinese brush  painting by Mr. Alex Chan Lim

Some people think that you have to  create paintings or obra to be considered real artist. I admit that I am not born with talent on arts but I have strong passion to learn.  I was amazed on how easily Mr. Alex Chan Lim  demonstrate the Chinese brush  painting. According to him each brush stroke has a technique, you should let your hands follow the stroke of the brush.

He is an engineer by profession!

It’s now our time to do our own artwork. This is a tough challenge!

See our teacher?  He’s been doing it for almost 3 years now, some of his artworks are also included in the exhibit.

I thought it was easy but boy I was wrong! You need a certain discipline and lot of practice to master each brush stroke.
