Coffee. The one thing that fights against my sudden urge to sleep.

Islamabad Art Festival has started today. It consists of multiple events such as exhibitions, performances, workshops and talks. Many artists from all over the world have come who are presenting their work and are attending the events. This event is being run by Jamal Shah and other members of Pakistan National Council of Art. I’m waiting for my exams to finish so I can attend this event. I’m so excited for this!

My last practical exam went well although I messed up big time in a few stations. Inshallah I pass all my theory and practicals as I’m so not in the mood for giving the exams again. My first day of vacations started by me sleeping…then going out for a wholesome family dinner..then sleeping again.

My friend and I celebrated my friend’s birthday a few days prior to her birthday as alot of us are heading out of city on her birthday. We went to BLT. As compared to most places where some types of dishes are really good and some not so much, this place had great chicken filet, pasta and burgers.

I went to IAF today. There was alot of mismatch in the schedule which meant one event, a Chinese contemporary dance workshop, was moved to multiplr places before being cancelled.
The best part of today was Turkish Abro Art. This wonderful lady demonstrated this art to us. The paints are natural extracts from special kind of Turkish rocks and the water used is derived from their seawater. If you see it, it looks like jelly. The colours that are showcased on paper, as a result, look so fresh and beautiful. To prove it, I’ll show you my work as she allowed people to try it out:

The next day I checked out the exhibitions which were very beautifully expressive. Here is one work that fits that criteria.
