I just finished the illustration workshop of Sweet Halloween last Sunday. I was very happy and surprised that the participants were from such diverse fields as law, marketing, digital art, library, writing, etc. When I ran the creative thinking exercises, I found that most of the participants had already a lot of experience with painting and rich creativity. (Everyone was too good. That made me feel a bit useless, and I could only assist from the side. XD)
During the workshop, the participants were creating their own unique little monsters, while sharing their own stories, and eating delicious and delicate sweets. It was so wonderful that the workshop was full of rich creativity, warmth and laughter and I enjoyed it very much. At the end of the workshop, I received more positive feedback than I expected. I will also try to improve my workshop, and bring more fun to all my participants
The only thing that I feel a little pity for was that I didn’t have the opportunity to get to know each of my participants better. I hope that I can hold a small exhibition next year or the year after. Then I can take this chance to get to know my participants and fans better
Thank Round and Round Rotterdam for the delicious sweets and great assistance, and many good friends for their helpful feedback.
In addition, I have to thank the crews of Venture Café who have given me opportunities and assisted me in running many different workshops, and many participants at Venture Café have given me a lot of effective feedback.
Oh ya~ I almost forgot to thank my Black Ink Monster ambassador. He was helping me to warm up the workshop! ^^
