Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the south offers a more leisurely pace of living. Wellness is prioritized and passions are pursued, leading to the existence of art studios such as Luna Art Workshop, located a quick drive from East Bay Residences.
Driving students to revisit or kick-start their artistic aspirations is Ted Luna, the studio’s founder and an artist of 31 years. Beyond a love for the guitar, paintings of which he’s hung across studio walls, Ted teaches year-round art workshops that are open to all age groups. For PhP 4,000, students can choose eight classes with subjects such as basic & advanced art theory, pastel drawing techniques, acrylic & oil painting techniques, watercolor, and character illustration.
On a Friday afternoon, a pair of matronly ladies and two pre-teens can be found working with various materials, from colored pencil to acrylic paints. “My students don’t just come from the south—some of them even come from as far as Cavite,” shares Ted, outfitted in a Tie-dyed t-shirt. Given that his daughters are both artists, you can imagine that Ted has a knack for allowing students to find ease in an easel or develop an interest in a new medium. Given Luna Art Workshop’s accessibility to East Bay, life can indeed inspire art.
