ART is a form of human expression. It portrays various ideas and feelings such as triumph, love, happiness or sorrow. Art captures beauty that needs to be in line with creativity. With the love for art, having the talent, and doing it with passion and patience, Cebu-based calligraphy and watercolor artist Jwen Garcia-Dionaldo didn’t hesitate to share her talent with aspiring artists last Dec. 15 at the Leisure Spa, Nivel Hills, Lahug, Cebu City.
The proceeds from this “Christmas Calligathering” organized by Zugbuana, went to My Bonita Homes, a residential refuge for abused and neglected girls. Aspirants learned the basics of calligraphy and watercolor painting with the assistance and guidance of Jwen, making her like a supreme teacher who awakens creative expression and imparts artistic knowledge to her students.
The Christmas Calligathering also aimed to augment the exposure of the “Flowers of Hope” project spearheaded by Sheila Sarabosing-Berdin and Christelle Dychangco, a project that creates a wall of hope which which will be presented in the upcoming events of Zugbuana.
The event somehow challenged aspiring artists to update and improve their own techniques and styles as well as continuously love art which brought them into a deeper satisfaction when they saw their finished artistic works. (Liza Marie Caube, USJ-R Communication Intern, PR)
