Paint your way to enlightenment

Ever wondered just how a statue comes to look the way it does? Wondered about which coat is painted first, which colours can be used, and which parts are painted first? Ever wondered if just maybe you had the skill to do paint the way the experts do? Perhaps you harbour fantasies of being another Lili Ng or Margaret Lee, both untrained volunteers who discovered they had a great talent for the arts?

Well, come and find out for yourself!

Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) will be running a graduated series of statue painting classes for all interested individuals, Kechara members or not! In the first class, students will learn how to paint the base coat. In the second class, students will learn to paint the body of the statue, and in their third and final class, they’ll learn how to complete the statue by painting the lotus seat.

Pass your newly-learnt skills on to your children...but remember! Students for this series of classes should be 14 years and older!

Because the class structure is graduated, it will be useful if participants signed up for all three classes…you might not understand what is going on in Class 3 if you have missed both Class 1 and 2!

So if you feel like your painting skills need a brush-up, or if you have ever wanted to volunteer with KSA, this will be a good opportunity for you to pick up the skills necessary to be a statue painting volunteer…and learn a new way of purifying body karma whilst you are learning how to paint!

DATES 17, 24 and 31 July 2010
TIME 2pm to 4pm
FEES RM10 for Kechara members; RM20 for non-Kechara members (fees are charged per class)

Who knows, maybe you are Kechara’s next Picasso!
