When 10-year old Jas spotted a poster for a coffee painting workshop, she immediately pointed it out to her mother. "We saw the poster for the coffee painting workshop in the lift. It looked interesting, and because the workshop was available at the CC near our house, my mother and I decided to sign up," she shares. For Jas, who learnt how to use coffee as paint, the fun didn't end even after the workshop. "I taught my neighbours how to do it," shares Jas proudly. "She came over to my house, and we used my mother's coffee to make art." "I always receive suggestions from residents who are keen to explore new things, and when I heard about coffee painting from a resident who participated in other workshops, this seemed like an opportunity to be more creative," explains workshop co-founder David Chew. As Limbang Community Arts and Culture Club Chairman, part of David's focus would be to find out what residents are interested in and develop new initiatives for the residents to come together over Art. Over the last year, David's passion for finding new ways to connect has resulted in several innovative art workshops ranging from paper quilling, clay craft and — most recently — the coffee painting workshop. "In Limbang, there are many young families. When it comes to publicising the workshop, we could leverage on social media to promote the activities", shares Tasvinder Kaur, Constituency Manager of Limbang Community Club. She adds, "Art is a great way to relax both physically and mentally. By organising these art activities, we hope to connect residents by introducing a new hobby to them." #PeoplesAssociation #SparkYourPAssion #Passionarts
