I am absolutely sure the little man will have the time of his life marveling at all his favorite Disney characters coming to life in this magical place!

We were invited to join Smart Parenting, SM Cinema, and Snack Time’s Express Yourself Workshop held over the weekend at the Atrium Activity Center of SM Aura Premier. Mums, dads, and kiddos were treated to an afternoon of fun, learning, freebies, plus a free advanced-screening of the latest Disney Pixar film, Inside Out. Read on for my review of this latest animation flick later.
3 Things I Love About The Express Yourself Workshop
It is always a joy to be in the company of mums and children having a wonderful afternoon together. Smart Parenting and SM Cinema prepared wonderful treats for all the participants to enjoy, including an overflowing supply of popcorn and colorful refreshments from Snack Time!
The spirit of caring that embodies Christmas is the inspiration behind the plastic Giant Dandelions installation recently unveiled at the Sky Park of SM Aura Premier in Taguig City. Famed textile artist, Olivia d’Aboville, thought there is nothing nobler that caring not just for loved ones, but for the one thing that has nurture us the most in more ways than we can imagine ~ the environment.
Oliva, a young French-Filipino artist based in Manila, is a staunch supporter of environmental efforts. She specializes in tapestry and textile structures, as well as adapting various techniques to create her very own woven forms and recycling had already been a major component of her pieces even while she was still a design student in Paris. She is drawn to mass-produced objects and has found a creative way of manipulating and recycling plastic spoons, water bottles, cocktail stirrers, and a whole lot of other materials create new work. She is also mostly known for ocean inspired works and is very sensitive to light, fluidity, and movement.
When asked about the nature of her art, Olivia shared, “I do a lot of recycled art and then progressively incorporate different materials to my work. Plastic is really an element that I like working with, and also the fact that I am a textile designer makes everything I do have some sort of textile technique within the piece.”
