What to Do This School Holiday: Fun Art Class with Pelikan

Other parents might moan and groan about having to find babysitters or make special arrangements for their children during school holidays but since my job is pretty much flexible as I’m running my own business, I couldn’t be happier spending time with my son during the school break. Yes. School is officially out in Malaysia for the year 2016 and I’m looking forward to having fun and going on adventures with my son.

 photo IMG_5370_zpsdgowa9wy.jpg

I have plenty of activities planned ahead for the school holiday, but we kicked off our first weekend of not having to go to school by going to an art class in Pelikan store.

 photo IMG_5378_zpsamurshpn.jpg

Located on the 3rd floor of The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur, Pelikan store is a one stop centre for all your children’s stationery needs. Right now, Pelikan is having Back to School Year End Sale at their Isetan KLCC & The Gardens Mall outlets, with 30% off on selected items.
Members get additional 10% ( 30% + 10%) only on members day 27-30/11/2016. If you are like me and would like to plan ahead for the next school term, this is your chance to get Pelikan products at great prices, without the nasty crowd doing last minute shopping. Promotion commence on 25th November 2016 and ends on 2 January 2017.

What’s great about the store is that it not only provide high quality stationeries for all your children’s schooling needs but it also host art classes during the school holidays. And I just sent my boy to attend one last weekend since we were bored stiff at home during the weekend and they happened to invite us bloggers and the members of the media to experience the art class that they are offering throughout the school holiday. It is doubtlessly a great way to start the school holiday for both of us.

A masterpiece in progress. Focusing on Pelikan’s Back to School 2016 theme: Best Friends, Pelikan Store is conducting thematic art classes especially for this school holidays of 5 weeks in total throughout December 2016 for school children under the age of 12. There will be 5 art classes in total, every Saturday 2session, 3pm & 4pm (1hour). The fees is RM70 for Pelikan members and RM95 for non-members. And the best part? You will also receive a complimentary Best Friends Set upon your first class with them on 3rd December 2016. If you just want to sign up for the individual classes, the price is just RM15 for Pelikan members and RM20 for non-members.

 photo IMG_5262_zpszhdrv5kq.jpg

During the session that I sent my son to, the children were taught how to produce an artwork by using the ‘Pointalism technique’, a neo impressionist painting using tiny dots of various pure colours which becomes blended in the viewer’s eyes. The technique was developed by George Seurat with the aim of producing a degree of luminosity and brilliance of colours, but art is subjective and freedom to be creative matters above all. And my son produced this instead of strictly sticking to the technique taught by the art teacher. Pretty neat, huh?

Apart from the art classes, the annual Pelikan Back To School contest is also back. You may want to let your children join their ‘Best Friends Colouring Contest’. Who knows if ladyluck would be on their side and they can win cash prizes and cool gadgets such as IPhone, IPad, GoPro Hero 4 & Nintendo 3DS. The prizes up for grab is worth more than RM30,000. For more information, on the contest, you might want to visit goo.gl/4To2vr. The contest ends 31 January 2017.

 photo IMG_5460_zpsgpjbdqmx.jpg

One for the album. As far as I’m concerned as a parent, the program is absolutely a wonderful way to let your children spend their school holidays. They can go wild with creativity and learning new art techniques while meeting new friends along the way.

Walk in for the classes is welcomed but I would recommend you to call them up at 03-22020801(The Gardens Mall Outlet) to reserve your seats to avoid disappointment.

#EllieTravels: in Resorts World Genting: SnowWorld

You can make-believe you are touring Europe as you take in the sights and sounds at the various “countries” created, namely Holland, Italy, Norway, England, France, Spain, Germany and Switzerland. Experience what being in a German Boucherie with 3D sausage and 3D cow is like  or take a picture in front of the facade bearing the image of a windmill with the 3D Holland Clog aside.  The tour itself can be considered educational—Geography lessons for the kids—or the guest may simply look upon it as a picture-worthy session filled with heartwarming moments.

Apart from ‘going around Europe’, SnowWorld is also offering medieval theme and there are many exciting photography backdrops and 3D props, making each visit a delightful one for visitors. Here’s riding a dragon in madieval times in SnowWorld. Pretty cool, huh?
