In a nutshell: CVT-X Art Fair 2016

by - Sunday, December 04, 2016

If you're a follower of mine on Facebook or Instagram, you might be seeing some posts about the art fair that had happened few weeks ago.

I was invited to participate in the CVT-X Art Fair last November 13. This event comes with some of the in-demand traditional and modern artists. Also, it's a good news to all artsy peeps in my hometown since this event was held in the south. They didn't have to go to the metro to participate in events just as this one.

I came just in time in the event so I took a moment and lurked around the area. And guess what? I found these pretty little artworks in digital, traditional, and mixed media format. FYI, these artworks were made by some of the artists in south. So proud!! These are my favorites, by the way.

The art demos and art talks were held in Buku-Buku Kafe's Alfresco area. The space is just enough for the number of participants. There's also an art table wherein everyone can create their artwork (and even print it!).

I was with my co-bloggers the entire day. I'm so happy to meet new friends who share the same interest with me. We also get to have a private group talk with the person behind Cong TV.

At the end of the day, I had a chance to join the watercolor workshop. I was surprised that Ms. Jess (Owner, Buku-Buku Kafe) reserved me a slot. So much love!!

Ok let's talk about the workshop. In case you're not aware, Buku-Buku Kafe usually hosts creative workshops in their place. You can follow their social media accounts for updates.

So if you would ask me how was the workshop, I'd answer it was fun but doesn't guarantee zero-stress especially if you really want to learn from the workshop. It's fun because you'd get to meet different people who have the same interest with you. If you really want to get the best out of it, I'd suggest you initiate a conversation with your teacher and your co-students. In this way you learn and at the same time you create connection with them.

One thing I realized from this workshop is that not everything can be learned by just merely reading the book or watching videos on Youtube. Some things require failures and frustrations before you master it. Since this workshop is skill-based, it's really important that you practice it. And from this workshop, you get to have real-time feedback from your teacher about the things that you need to improve.

So to end this post, I'd like to congratulate the organizers behind this wonderful event: The Ai Project and Buku-Buku Kafe. Looking forward to seeing you in the next season of CVT-X. Keep inspiring others!!
