Artsy Folks, Uniqlo's Online Workshops Are for You
Free lettering and drawing classes, anyone?
(SPOT.ph) The past few months had us doing all sorts of new things we wouldn’t have probably considered trying if not for the quarantine. Want to pick up some art-related skills this time around? Japanese retail brand Uniqlo has an ongoing UTme! Online Workshop Series that features the local artists behind the brand’s UTme! Art of the Philippines Salamat collection: Risograph press and design studio Bad Student, illustrator Christi Lu, and letterer Kitty Jardenil. You can participate in the two upcoming workshops via Uniqlo's Facebook page for free!
For tomorrow, June 26 at 6 p.m., you can catch the second installment of the series called Drawing Faces with Christi Lu. You just have to prepare the following materials: Paper or any surface you can draw on; coloring materials such as crayons, colored pencils, paint; pencil; eraser; and marker.
Fascinated with the art of drawing letters? Mark your calendars on July 3 at 6 p.m. for a Beginner’s Class on Hand Lettering with Kitty Jardenil. For this session, you’ll need a marker set, a sketchbook or thick paper, a pencil, eraser, ruler or any straight-edged object.
To give you an idea of what the workshop flow is like, here’s what went down in the first installment that happened on June 19: a collage-making session with Bad Student. The pair demonstrated to viewers how to make a collage by recreating their shirt design from the aforementioned collection using everyday household items.
The shirt collection features vivid UTme! designs that showcase gratitude and appreciation to frontliners and the community amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. It is exclusively available at the second floor at UNIQLO Manila Global Flagship Store, Glorietta 5.
