On June 10, art facilitator Arlene Javier conducted a Modern Calligraphy Workshop. Participants, both and young alike, were guided through the execution of the art of writing using Faber-Castell Calligraphy Brush Pens. The skillful rendition of letters and characters through various styles of writing is as old as every culture all over the world. The workshop offered a renewed appreciation of the art of calligraphy and the kind of discipline required to execute this art form.
On June 11, a Floral Painting Workshop designed for art enthusiasts of all ages was facilitated by Carla Chua. A step-by-step process was demonstrated on how to apply colors to a flower using the Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils. The Faber-Castell art materials was named after Albrecht Durer, a German artist popularly known for his prints, who made watercolour sketches during one of his sojourns to Italy, in his early life as an artist.
During these art activities, Faber-Castell provided the art materials for free. Special tokens were distributed to lucky participants during the workshops.
It is the aim of Faber-Castell to continue to promote art appreciation and provide platforms for developing skills in drawing, calligraphy, lettering, painting for art aficionados, students, children, and as a venue for shared family experiences.
