Bartega Studio, in collaboration with Jakarta Aquarium, invited 20 enthusiastic participants to join in their highly-anticipated Glow in the Dark painting event. Bartega decided to choose Jakarta Aquarium as their partner due to the dramatic lighting and aquatic atmosphere, which make it as a perfect complement for the luminous painting experience. What makes this event special for Bartega is the use of fluorescent acrylic paint on the participants’ canvas that will light up brightly under UV light that they had installed specially for this event. The purpose of that is to mimic the glowing jellyfish, which became the painting theme on that day.
During the 2-hour event at the aquarium’s “Swirl Tank”, each participant is equipped with a canvas, paint palette, brushes, acrylic paint, and apron. The staffs from Bartega will rotate and teach the participants individually on how to reproduce a Jellyfish painting with a step-by-step instruction.
“In this fast-paced city where technology dominates our live, it’s actually very relaxing to connect myself with a set of painting tools and canvas. In addition, it allows me to rekindle with my childhood hobby and feel productive on a weekday”, said Nadia, one of the event participants.
Through its painting events, Bartega aims to introduce painting as a positive hobby for people of all generations to relax, meditate, and explore their creativity realms.
