LadyBird at Creative Art Centre
I can’t help myself for not falling in love with cute little things especially when it come to ‘LadyBird’. To keep a real ladybird as pet would be impossible as ladybird are small tiny insect and one must have sharp eye to spot them among the plants. So, when the real ladybird is transform into something that I can keep or treasured, I will go to certain extend (by all mean if it requires) to have one in my possession. 🙂
In other word, I’ll be a very happy woman if a ‘ladybird’ is given to me in exchange of ‘bribing’ me. I don’t accept flowers. Or chocholate. ;p

After much of persuasion, finally I managed to get Alex (the owner) to let go of his complete set of insects world. Normally, Alex doesn’t give away his ‘master piece’ as it would be his ‘exhibit artifact’ for display purposes but because of me, he has to let go of his ladybirds to me.
*evil laugh on the air*
I’m not that mean, right? ;p
I found out the i-clay are very soft and it doesn’t leave any smell at all on your finger. When asked, I was told the clay are non toxic material therefore it’s children friendly. It will not cracks after drying, easy handling and can be recycled.

Creative Art Centre is not all about learning the art of clay but the centre also provide plasterine art painting which is available for children & adults. From 2D/3D designs to all plaques, from cartoon to sceneries, from sports to romance, you name it, they have it all. The best part is you can relax and enjoy painting your own masterpiece that comes in various shapes and prices (depending on the size) . The paint is provided free by the centre. 😉
Looking at the clay end results produced by the children are pretty amazing. One would thought it is a piece of art made by grown up adults. Don’t believe me?!!
Go and drop by at the centre to find out what they have to offer you. Or give them a call. 🙂
I find my visit to the this centre was a worthwhile effort,of which in the beginning started with a brief introduction of its existence in Miri from the forum. I am the type that holding on to ‘seeing is believing’ kind of thing (not to mention hard to please too) and the effort of going down to check out the centre was a not a wasted effort after all.
I found out most of Mirian (be it the local or non-Mirian who are working here) complaint or whinning on Miri has nothing much to offer as compare to other big cities (e.g:Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur) in the forum especially during the weekend. Now, you may want to consider doing/exploring something new at Creative Art Centre.
Think about it. 🙂
