The painting workshop included color training and knowledge, as well as various painting techniques, from basic painting to decorative painting and texture painting. At the end of the day, the three students who had best mastered the techniques from the workshop were recognized.
Devita Natalia, 19, who is studying marketing, was among the winners. She said, “Joining the workshop was an eye opener for me and I am keen to explore this opportunity more, especially with my study in marketing. There is a lot to learn and do when it comes to color and paint.”
