ATC in May 2017

What a colourful and sweet time we had on 11 May!

The inspirational theme was "Home Sweet Home".

We tried out shades and tints of one colour to create art.

Wonderful time.

Next session on 8 Jun 2017, and the theme is "Fabric".

ATC in Mar 2017

This was a special edition of our regular ATC session - it was exhibition time!

On 9 Mar, we met to help put together the exhibition which we have been preparing for these past few months. Many of us committed ourselves to creating a frame of ATCs with a certain theme. Unlike previous exhibitions in which we used ATC plastic pockets, having the frames lend a different look to the display.

Mdm Au was fantastic in making special hooks for the display. It looked really good.

Unfortunately, during the week of the exhibition, a set of the display boards fell and some of the frames were damaged. Good thing that the ATCs themselves were not affected.

The following Thursday, 16 Mar, we took down the frames and held a special session for those who are new to ATCs and have come to know us through the exhibition.

The climax is when we went down to Sree Narayana Mission Home on the morning of 1 Apr to create ATCs with some of the seniors there and then to put up our frames of ATCs different spots of the home with the hope of Adding Tremendous Cheer!

What a wonderful group of creative and loving ATC members!

ATC in Feb 2017

Love was in the air tonight. Look at all the amazing ATCs!

We also tried out the art we will do with a group of seniors in April.

Our exhibition is next month. We are excitedly looking forward to it. Meeting on 9 Mar to get the exhibition ready and then on 16 Mar, the extra session at which we will bring some of our collection to share with others.

These are my ATCs for this month.

This is my "Love Blossom" series. Each is a pop-up card of a flower inside.

ATC in Jan 2017

We had a really good crowd this month.

Mdm Au, as usual, lead us in a very wonderful session of quilling.

There was such an array of creativity in the Rooster themed ATCs for this evening.

One of the ATCs I created was made from egg shells. This was traded with Jessica.

We also spent time talking about the upcoming exhibition in March and also our visit to a nursing home to run an art activity as well as put up our artwork for their enjoyment for a few months. Very exciting.

We will meet again on 9 Feb and the inspirational theme will be Valentine's.

ATC in Dec 2016

We had an explosion of colours creating molas inspired ATCs. Molas is a form of fabric art from Pananma.

The collection of Present theme ATCs was also fantastic. The theme was interpreted in many ways including as gift, being present and present time.

We are also in the thick of our preparation for our exhibition in March next year. It is getting exciting.

The next meeting is on 12 Jan 2017 and the theme is Rooster.

ATC - Oct and Nov 2016

This is a catch-up for the 2 ATC sessions held last month and this month at Bishan Library.

In October, we tried some "magic" painting with this special paper that allows water to appear like ink. It was fun. We also had quite a few lovely cards for the theme of "Window" including one with the Windows logo. 

For November, Mdm Au taught us to quill these lovely hummingbirds. There were also attractive "Something Red" ATCs and our librarian brought out books with covers that have something red too.

We were also mentioned in a town council newsletter.

We have also starting preparing for an exhibition in March 2017 and we hope to bring the ATCs into a senior home or two after the exhibition. Isn't that cool? Look out for more about the ATC Adding Tremendous Cheer exhibition.

Join us on 8 Dec at 7 pm. The inspirational theme is "Present".
