26.10.11 - Art Workshop @ Galeri Petronas

After that, we went to Suria KLCC to Galeri Petronas for a children’s art workshop. The workshop costs RM12 per child. It was taught by En. Uneh Hasren. He asked the kids to call him ‘Uncle U’, short for Uneh, which is a combination of the word ‘unik’ and  ‘aneh’ in Bahasa Malaysia. He has published 4 colouring books and calls himself “Raja Pensel Warna” (King of colour pencils), which was befitting as his colouring works were very beautiful. 

He gave many helpful tips on colouring. Before starting to draw or colour, we had to select either 2 or 3 colours first -  dark and medium or light colour. First, draw using a light colour. To shade, use a dark colour first. Then use the medium, then light colour. He also shared with that using white colour pencils actually makes the colouring smoother and the paper shinier.

He also showed us some of the colourings that he did with colour pencils. The flowers that he coloured were very beautiful. I had never seen colour pencils having the effect like watercolours. It was unique that he uses colour pencils to colour. When I attended art classes when I was young, we used oil pastels. However, my boys don't like the oil pastels as it stains their hands. I'm still trying to figure out how to get them to like oil pastels. I just read that there is a holder which we can use, but I don't know where to get it. Perhaps in the art supply shop. In the meantime, colour pencils would be a good alternative then.
