Zoom千人粉彩公益课,免费指导宅家防疫的人画粉彩画。

“当时会这么做,是因为感受到大家被困在家里,什么都不能做,需要美学教育安抚一下心情。”她觉得不可思议的是和来自世界各地的人一起画画,马来西亚、新加坡、香港、台湾,远至澳洲、英国、欧洲、西亚甚至巴布亚新几内亚。
.

22堂免费公益课后,不少人因为喜欢上粉彩画,继续报名参加她接下来的收费网课,也有她的学生在新加坡开粉彩公益课,和谐粉彩的疗愈力量像涟漪般扩散出去。很多人发现到原来画画如此简单,画画过程疗愈心灵。

病毒疫情使人们关上门待在家里,科技和艺术却打开了另一扇窗,与世界连接彼此交流,温暖人心。Sarana肯定绘画的疗愈力量,“美和艺术是生活的缓冲垫,在我们被现实生活打击时接住我们,跌倒的时候软著地不至于太痛。”

Inaugural International Group Exhibition for Pastel Nagomi Art, 2018 Kuala Lumpur

‘Anyone can make beautiful art’ – this is the social mission of PNA. “Tales of Nagomi” shares exhibitors’ heartwarming personal narratives created through art. Among the exhibitors ranging from 4 to 81 years old, we have our most senior folks from Valley of Hope (Leprosy Home). 

“ Sarana Khoo, a young artist and first local Pastel Nagomi Art certified Trainer, has trailblazed and trained PNA Instructors since 2014. Her initiative and enthusiasm have seen this community art popularizing with more than 100 instructors from Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong participating in this Group Exhibition. Tales of Nagomi will be the first PNA exhibition ever held locally with more than 100 artworks from these countries.”
