Instead of featuring the
usual "Lamma Artist of the Month", let's find out this time how YOU can
live the life of a Lamma artist, at least for one day!
First, get yourself over to
Luk Chau - just over the hill from Yung Shue Wan. Then, spend a day
relaxing, meeting a few like-minded individuals, having great fun, making
up some artworks and being really amazed & surprised at yourself by how
creative you can become in the right environment & atmosphere!
I've just spent a fun day at the beginner's
into the Creative Pulse in the GreenHouse with inspiring art
teacher Deirdre Butler, famous acupuncturist Jerry, plus a
Chinese and an Indian lady (non-Lammaites). Lunch and all materials were
provided. Click here for some details of these easy-going, free-spirited art workshops.
So what are you waiting for? Give Deirdre a call or
email her and find out what YOU can create in a single day! I'll
be back in July, we might even meet up.
