Arts Leadership: Empowerment for Unlimited Possibilities

Learning to draw and laugh at oneself at work is good for the health and creativity.

North Zone Key Personnel Learning Carnival 2008 is an executive training seminar for key personnel of government schools in the northern sector of Singapore. They had an interesting concept of linking arts to leadership. Participants comprising of vice-principals and head-of-departments were exposed to different art genres and made to reflect on the parallels of leadership and the disciplines in art-making.

The simple truth is, we had fun teaching them how to draw and laugh at themselves through caricatures (LOL). I came across this quotation today that I want to share with all:

Laughing at our mistakes can lengthen our own life.
Laughing at someone else’s can shorten it.
Cullen Hightowe

    Hope this will made the public and related organisations and people noticed what is caricatute suppose to be.

    For the record. Welles got us started again at doing ‘live’ caricatures in 2005 after laying it off since 1995 to take care of our graphic design practice.
