Last year, I was lucky enough to attend the SM Stationery Art Fest which featured my favorite stationery brands and had art workshops by creatives I look up to. (Thanks, Universe!) 🙂
This year, I had the pleasure of attending it again, and I couldn’t be happier. The timing couldn’t have been better too! I personally love that it coincides with the summer season, which is perfect for students on vacation and adults who are excited to learn something new for summer.
Stationery and art workshops are my passion and I looked forward to learning more about how to maximize the use of said office/school supplies. The workshops are so innovative and exciting, and are facilitated by local creatives. There’s a lot of cool workshops, like metallic mandala art, floral doodling, diy shrinky dinks, diy watercolor stickers, diy sharpie watercolor art, gothic and brush calligraphy, and slime making. I wish I could have joined them all! 🙂
Here are some photos I took on the 1st day of the event, which runs from April 19-23 at the Mega Fashion Hall. Loved the pastel theme this year, it looked so fresh and fun!
We loved these cute colorful icons displayed in stands. Resisted the urge to pluck them off and pose with them a la photobooth style haha:
Like last time, the participating brands had artsy activities you can try per area. The participating brands this year are Faber-Castell, Elmer’s, Sharpie, Ifex Philippines, M&G Stationery, and Pilot. Being a stationery lover, these are all brands I adore and use. It was really fun seeing the numerous possibilities and artistic creations you could make with their products (and the creative and colorful product displays!):
There were a lot of colorful markers which you can use to doodle or color in these artsy installations. A crowd favorite. :
Everything was so. Tempting.
Thankful that I got to bond with the titas (who were also in last year’s Art Fest!) Ella, June, Geli and Trish 🙂
Drone shot/climbing up the highest floor in the mall lol. This was taken while Wednesday, papercutter extraordinaire, was setting up for a demo in partnership with Ifex. Loving the orange comma stage! I was joking how it was a nice flatlay prop/bed shot from above, haha:
Loot from the event, featuring products from the participating brands. Check out more colorful snaps featuring the above brands in my previous post. Can’t wait to make tons of art using these:
P.S. It’s their last day today! Hurry over to the Mega Fashion Hall and you might still get to join the art workshops and watch the demos (and hoard items to your heart’s content, haha). 🙂
Thank you, SM Stationery, for this fun event and thanks also to Faber-Castell, Elmer’s, Sharpie, Ifex Philippines, M&G Stationery, and Pilot. Till the next Art Fest!
Have a fun, artsy summer! 🙂
