About the Workshop:
Khaitama will be teaching you the art of Playnting, painting with drumsticks, to understand and embody who you truly are, while visualising your thoughts and emotions. Music is a core component where participants can blast their favourite songs and Playnt to the rhythm of both their external and internal surroundings.
Participants will learn:
- Basic drum beats and the steps to deconstructing rhythm via the senses
- Color theory and associations
- To enlighten and connect with themselves through an experiential art form
- The importance of having an artistic outlet to alleviate physical, emotional and spiritual ails
- How to build bonds and mutual understanding with others through communal art activities like Playnting
To create and take home final ‘Playnting’ artworks on:
- Canvas board
- Canvas tote bag
Guided hands-on participation will be carried out to reinforce the concepts and methods shared during the workshop.
Playnting captures the imprint of your subconscious reality. Every stroke and color portrayed is an extension and reflection of you.
What will you discover about yourself?
About the Artist:
Khaitama, an artist who visualises rhythm by creating his own technique of painting with drumsticks which he later coined ‘Playnting’. The amalgamation of music and visual arts allows Khaitama to seamlessly express how one feels, be it his own or of his subject, through the fluid yet aggressive, and at times subtle, motions of the drumsticks. Aspiring to launch and spearhead a new art movement of multi-sensory engagement that is holistic and humane, Khaitama hopes each individual to better understand and empower themselves, as well as others. Playnting is an introspective and communal language which is therapeutic and lots of fun!
