Third grade art class. Which was your weapon of choice: crayons or water color?
Growing up, we toyed with puzzles, art materials and all kinds of games that helped ignite our imagination for creating art and our resourcefulness for critical thinking and problem solving. Ten year old you might not have realized that but you can thank him or her for spending countless hours playing and filling all those coloring books.
Last Friday, August 23, on a rainy evening, Francis and I visited an art exhibit that attempts to liven up the child in us and inspire feelings of nostalgia for all those sunny afternoons playing around with toys and crayons.
PLAY is a multimedia arts exhibit showcasing the works of nineteen exceptional multimedia artists from De La Salle College of St. Benilde, each with their own interpretation of the exhibit’s main theme: “Think. Play. Create.”
The art works and installations were total eye candy. The event room at the Le Parc venue was a bit small but it wasn’t at all cramped. We roamed around taking photos and oogling at the many displays.
Aside from the many art works found around the place, there were also art corners and toys to be found everywhere. Adults, teenagers and kids enjoyed different activities like coloring books, doodle walls, puzzles, art toys, comic books, origami art, and displays of childhood games like hopscotch.
