Pattern More Than Badminton

Over the recent weekend, Moses facilitated an art workshop for a family as they celebrated their father’s birthday. I call the workshop Pattern More Than Badminton. The workshop was a surprise for the father.

Each of them created an artwork using patterns on a small card and then we put all of that together into one collective artwork.

This made a very unique present for the father. And as a additional surprise, there is an AR element to this. Using Artivive app to view this completed artwork, a video from the family members cab be seen singing him a birthday song.

If you are keen to have a similar session, do write to us soon at pauseability@gmail.com.

Writing Chinese

Here’s a fun way to practice writing Chinese characters. It’s a free add-on in TinyTap and Moses have designed these Chinese writing interactive. Give it a try.

Look for the TinySketch section in the opening screen. Tap on the graphic with “A for Apple”, scroll to find the Chinese writing set.

TinySketch is at the bottom left corner in this image
The words for different animals you could try.

You might also notice that these words have the same radical on the left side. 犭

Pix and Poems – a free ebook

So delighted to present another wonderful community effort that brought together writers to create 31 fun poems in response to either a prompt, and illustration or both.

This started with 14 prompts for “aprillustration” each starting with P, and these prompts and illustrations were offered as an invitation for the poems.

Within a fortnight of the call, and within a month of starting with the illustrations, this fantastic ebook has been created collectively.

This 50-page ebook is available for free download at bit.ly/pixNpoems.

Read the book and tell us what you think. Better yet, be inspired and share with us your creations too. And not forgetting to share this ebook with your friends far and wide.
