Introduction to the World of Acrylic Painting

Hi everyone,
Let me first introduce my humble self – Adeline Yeo – have never written to silver hairs club besides attending a few get together. I am wondering how many of us have always wished to give personalized yet relatively affordable gifts to people whom we get in touch with. Well let me introduce you to the world of acrylic painting, which both young and old, with or without artistic ability can learn easily.

When I first picked up acrylic painting 15 years ago, I had no idea that it would not only bring much joy, creativity, freedom of expression, more friends and best of all extra monetary gains. Acrylic can be painted on most surfaces such as: fabric, paper, cards, fiberboard, wood, plastic and even stones. Thus I hope to share this skill and interest with others who are equally passionate about learning crafts.

The internet, schools and books expose you to a world of both knowledge and confusion about acrylic. Here I list just some of the few subjects:
• Different objects: sceneries, birds, flowers, still life, portraits, landscapes, etc
• Different family of colors within the colors, burnt sienna, raw umber, etc
• Different types of mediums: Retarders, glaze, etc
• Different types of brushes: flat tipped, round, ferrule, liners etc
• Different types of surfaces: Paper, plastic, wood, etc

Internet Links like this: https://youtu.be/AWQ1S1YwkI0

Schools that teach basic acrylic painting: http://pabha.com/ArtClass/Page6.htm
http://www.nafa.edu.sg/courses/part-time/short-courses

Books: Acrylic Painting for Dummies, Acrylic Painting with Passion
The list above is not exhaustive as you can always google or even borrow books from the library. As I was fortunate in the sense that I blindly followed what was taught because I was attracted to the final product that my colleague introduced. So questions like, what should I paint, what kind of brushes should I use, How do I start? These did not hinder my passion. It was much later that I learnt from Arts of Crafts (a school at Orchard Road) and Spotlight that I further increased my interest, but I should add I am still in the process of fine tuning

So without much further ado, let me show you some of my completed artworks, which were ordinary looking pieces of wood and stones which I had them painted as decorative items, given as personalized gifts and some that helped me make some extra income.

I hope this helped in your decision in taking up a hobby that is both therapeutic, relatively cheap and an enjoyment with your kids and a favorite past time.
Regards:
Adeline Yeo

Mahjong anyone?

Hi all,
Mahjong helps to exercise the mind, like Sudoku, Scrabble, Chess etc.
I am not a good or regular mahjong player.
My aim is to have a non gambling game, that is, chips will be used. The idea is to learn to build on the doubles, not just to game small. To exercise the mind and also to socialise.
I would like to start with a small group of 4.
You may be a beginner, a regular or someone who has not played the game before.
I have a mahjong set and table at my place, which is in Pasir Ris.
I’m willing to teach the game if you are a beginner.
If there are people who wish to add some excitement to the game and not use chips only, I’m not averse to it but I play very small.
Do let me know your preference and I can have a separate group for that.
Just email me at meiliix@gmail.com .
Cheers

  • Moving from DayCare to SHC Orchids

    shc-logo  orchid2  orchid1

    If there is anything some of us are good at, it has to be dreaming.  Dreaming is a great activity.  First, we dream about Day Care.  For some of us, we have been with SilverHairsClub for 10 years.  Now, we think about what we will do when we get older, and less mobile.  We conceptualise a few ideas.

    Next, we move on, and we conceptualise “SHC Orchids”.  A nice pretty word, less hostile and more welcoming than Day Care.  Essentially, the same activities as what we are doing now, but with more focused activities, suitable for SHC members who have difficulties with mobilty.  But, still working on the same platform to allow us to meet new friends and catch up with old friends.

    Maybe SHC Orchids will expand to more Singaporean seniors.  Maybe arts and crafts, hobbies, indoor activities.  I dont know.  But, we will keep developing.

    I like to encourage members who have arts and craft skills to come forward.  You can teach, conduct short courses to interested members, and we can expand your skills and training as part of SHC Orchids programmes.  You can charge a fee for your training, nobody would expect you to do so for free.

    There are a number of you with arts and crafts skills.  Do let me know if you are interested to work along such a plan.  I am sure a number of us would be interested to hear from you.

    Use Tennis balls to relieve stress and tension

    Hi All

    People who saw tennis balls on my bed are often puzzled and asked why?

    I accidently discovered this trick and it had helped me and so would like to share this simple tricks with you folks who might be interested. It cost nothing – only the tennis ball and the weight of your body will do the trick. It is relaxing and it’s easy to do.

    Get hold of any tennis ball/s – it doesn’t have to be new. Used and discarded ones will do as long as it is still in one piece and firm. You can start with one or 2. I use two.

    For the shoulders :
    – Lie on your back on your bed (your mattress should be firm and not too soft). Place tennis ball/s between your shoulder blades and relax your arms to the sides. Relax and you will immediately feel the relieve of tension on your shoulder. You can even fall asleep in that position.

    – Wiggle a little and you will feel the massaging effects.
    – Raise both arms straight in front of you and draw circles in the air (you will hear crackling sound. Where the sound comes from?…. who care?…. as long as you feel shiok).

    You can use the same method for the lower part of your back, or lie on your side and place 1 ball in the hollow of your hip (between the hip bone and the thigh). This will relieve the “sng” feeling.

    For the neck :
    – In the lie back position, place 1 tennis ball on the spot at the back of your neck where you feel tension….. because the back of your neck is not as broad, you will need to hold it in place with your hand or place the ball in your palm.

    For the leg :
    – In standing position, place tennis ball under the arch of your right foot. Try rolling the ball in small circles while still standing, weight on the left foot. Not so easy to do but will help with blood circulation of the legs. Repeat with the left foot.

    Try it. Hope it help. If you tried – share your feedback so others and I can learn from it.

    🙂

    Pickleball – Let’s Play This Sport Together

    My name is Eric Leow, a new member to this Club.

    I am playing pickleball for the last year and there are players who are playing this for the last 20 odd years. Many players across all skill-level have claimed that it would be “very hard” to stop playing the game, with some saying that they are “very determined” to continue playing.

    Briefly pickleball is a hybrid of Badminton, Tennis and Table-tennis, a three in one game, played with a wooden, graphic, or composite paddles and a perforated plastic ball. It can be played on a normal Badminton court or on any hard surface. The net is lowered to 3 ft high.

    If you find badminton, tennis or squash too strenuous for you, then pickleball is an excellent introductory game. It is very easy to learn and is quickly played and enjoyed by everyone, men, women, children and benefiting people at all ages. It is a low cost game. Badminton courts are easily available in our CC or sports hall. All you need is to buy the paddles and balls.

    From my personal experience, I found that most pickleball clubs do not want to take in new players who have not play this game before.

    I know the organizer of a pickleball club, and I think I should be able to convince him to recruit new players. Subject to SHCians expression of interest, I am considering to introduce pickleball and EO this sports here.

    If this is on, it would be on every Tues and Thurs 9.30am to 12.30pm. However, if the CC required the use the hall for activities then that session will be cancelled.

    You just need to get your own paddle, and contribute towards the purchase of balls. Not to worry about the amount, it is very affordable. It is about $3-$4 per month.

    The place is in the vicinity of Hougang.

    Life is like a Mountain Railroad. April 5 (Sat) 1.00-5.00pm (Cancelled)

    Life to us is like going on a journey by train to our destinations. From day one it may not be as smooth as we expected. We meet with all kind of challenges and people. To some of us it may be near the end of the journey but we accepted the good and the bad and make the most of it. Do find time to share and lift up one another.

    We meet again at same place same time and hopefully more enticing foods! There will be kok and singalong and board games like chess, mahjong(cards) and Big Two (Cards game). You may bring along your own cds and snacks for High Tea.

    Venue: Kolam Ayer CC/Geylang Bahru/From Lavender MRT Bus-stop on Lavender Rd Bus 107 and 61. alight 5 stops later.

    Time: 1.00pm -5.00pm

    Venue venue and still venue – Where to conduct classes

    Hi All,
    While we are aware that there are lots of talented members willing to come forward to conduct classes charging a minimal cost for materials and some extra.  It is always a great challenge as to where they can find a venue to host these classes.

    This morning, while having breakfast with Karen – she was showing me those nail arts that she had done on her nails.  Wow, is really beautiful and she is willing to teach but again venue is another setback.

    I always wanted to try putting a false eyelashes but yet to master this skill and always hope that someone will be able to guide me along.. todate, had been unsuccessfully discard at least 10 pairs of falsies due to no proper guidance given.

    Of cos, some of you will definitely tell me, aiyah, go to youtube and watch video, sure ai sai 1.. well at least, I know that this does not worked out for me…

    Having said all these, are any members out there able help to provide any info for venue (FOC) or cost at minimal charge – we want to hear from all of you….

    Cheers… Dolly

    Organising Events/Activities for Members

    It would be so nice to have long time members organise events and activities for new and fellow longtime members. Hopefully, this will spur new members to do their part.

    Some suggestions here

    How about some baking or cooking lessons.
    Or maybe a weekend trip to some seaside resorts for some spa and “laypak” (nuah/”rot”) time. Heard that there are some good accommodation/spa treatments at some resorts in Batam at quite reasonable prices – anyone wants to initiate?
    Would someone like to ki chiew to organise a mini sports day? I miss those school days throwing quoits, sack race, three legged race, etc.
    Or a funfair?

    Throw in your suggestions and hopefully someone will pick out something from the list to organise.

    Cheers
    Caroline

    A Time for Us – 29 Nov (Fri) 6.15 – 10.00 pm

    To everything there is a time and a season under the sun. A time to come together, to cherish one another. A time to hug and to hold and a time to let go. A time to do good and to sow good seeds. A time to play and a time to sing and a time to serenade a loved one. What are the niceties of life, a touch, a smooch, a longing for someone?

    I got a place just for you:

Hot water provided, bring your own instant beverages. We shall have potluck here. If you are in the mood for red wine, bring it along and share with your buddies here.

    EC event – Play about Love (Sat, 19 Oct 2013, 3pm to 4.30pm)

    Dear all

    The Ageless Theatre presents Faces (Phases) of Love, a play about the power of love and the search for that special someone. It comprises four short skits, including one about a lonely widow’s love for her deceased husband, and another about four mahjong buddies reminiscing about love and loss.

    The venue is the Marine Parade Community Club Theatrette. Each ticket costs $15. As contact numbers of the organisers cannot be displayed here, if you wish to join a couple of us for this performance, you may transfer funds to my POSB Savings Account 159-13164-5 and I can purchase the tickets on your behalf.

    What is interesting is that the Ageless Theatre comprises people aged 43 and above.

    Any play enthusiasts?

    Joy 🙂

    Wine and Song – 19 Oct ( Saturday ) 6.15pm – 10.00pm

    It may not be the ideal venue but as a compromise we have place to seat up to 40 pax and at a neat cost. Once again a time to croon and singalong to all our favorite evergreen golden oldies. No worries if you can’t sing alone, we will sing in groups. You are encourage to bring your own cd or dvd.

    Our DJ is a very obliging guy. He can sing duet in Chinese or English with anyone. With his great voice he will guide us if we start on the wrong keys. Bring along board games like chess, scrabble or rummikub and look for kakis to play with.

    Venue: Kolam Ayer CC/Geylang Bahru/11 minutes walk from Potong Pasir MRT. Those coming bus check with gorgeous Google
    Date: October 19, 2013 (Saturday)
    Time: 6.15- 10.00pm
    Cost: $6.00 each if we have 10 pax and if we have 20 pax each at $3.00 only.

    Bring only red wine for our happy hours and foods (Potluck). This will be an EO event, if turnout is slow I will change it to an EC event.

    A place and a time to relax and chat and ‘ketchup’ with new and old friend!

    EO, Dan
