Caricature Drawing Workshop at APAD~ by kamaldollah on Mar 15, 2008.
I volunteered a caricature drawing workshop at my art association, the Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya. Its a three hour session which was attend by only six person. I was a bit dissapointed at the small attendance because there was overwhelming enquiry for the course when it was published. Though small, we managed to have a good time and each of them got caricatured by me.
Throughout the year, I get numerous queries from the public requesting for me to conduct art courses for individuals. I have accumulated a long list of names . Sadly when the time comes that I announce a class, they never show up. So if you ever wondered why in the first place I am reluctant to accept individual students and only operate for schools and corporate events, its because I’d prefer to spend time with my wife and watch my kids grow rather than be stood up by strangers. Then again, if you really want to engage me for a session and can organise a crowd, we can discuss it.
This is not the first time I’ve had small audience or been stood up by students. For the love of art, I’ll do this again but only once a year. It used to be once a week in the past years but I gave up on being Mr. Nice. All proceeds for this workshop goes to the association.
