When in Manila and looking for a fun and worthwhile activity this summer, I highly recommend you sign-up for the weekly Tuscany at McKinley Hill’s Summer Art Sessions! A few days ago, I was fortunate to attend their Basic Brush Calligraphy Class led by Mimai Cabugnason….. it was so much fun!

Mimai as she teaches us the basic up and down strokes…
At first, I really thought it was easy, but I realized you really need a whole lot of discipline and patience to acquire this skill. First, Mimai taught us about the basic strokes in calligraphy.
thick for down, thin for up… practice, practice, practice….
Our teacher Mimai then gave us exercises on how to write our names…
Definitely not as easy as it looks. I need to practice more
I personally would like to invite all arts and crafts enthusiasts to attend the Tuscany at McKinley Hill’s Summer Art Sessions filled with fun, worthwhile learning, scrumptious treats and great music every Sunday starting April 19, 2015 and will run until May 10, from 1PM-5PM! This event is made possible by Megaworld Lifestyle Malls in partnership with Manila Workshops.
The Tuscany at McKinley Hill’s Summer Art Sessions will be led by some of Manila’s finest artists, who will be sharing their knowledge and expertise in a variety of workshops to be held at several restaurants in Tuscany, the burgeoning dining strip in McKinley Hill situated along Upper McKinley Road.
