The Beanie and Bren Show by Bren Bataclan

The Beanie and Bren Show — Join best buddies, #BeanieandBren, for weekly #creative #adventures of #art, #crafts, #friendship and #fun. www.beanieandbren.comBren’s Bataclan is a Filipino-American artist who began his street art installation in the summer of 2003. The painting involves the artist leaving his cartoon inspired FREE paintings for takers who ‘promise to smile.’ He calls this SmileyB Project. Bren started around the Boston area but has since gone worldwide with his project and has begun to paint murals and exhibit his paintings across the country.

To get to know the artist, please read the linked article which I previously wrote extensively about Bren’s Art and his Smile Movement back in June 2015: Bren Bataclan, artist who gives free artwork for a promise to smile.

Now, his up to something new: He has started a new project—“The Beanie and Bren Show.”  Although, The SmileB Project is all about giving free artworks for a promise to smile— this show carries the same objective. It is all about fun, friendship, creativity, and above all…smiles!

Follow your passion

If you surround yourself with what you are passionate about, your competitors won’t stand a chance. Look for something you would do for free and then find a way to make money by doing what you love the most.

The importance of creative play


Atulayan Island, Camarines Sur Philippines

The importance of creative play in early childhood is one of the most important criteria in Mental Health. Play helps children weave together all the elements of life as they experience it.

With creative play, children blossom and flourish; without it, they suffer a serious decline.

“Let me think about the people I care about the most.  Like when they fail or disappoint me, I still love them, I still give them chances, and I still see the best in them.  Let me extend the same generosity to myself.

“If I catch myself wearing a tutu – 2FAT, 2LATE, 2OLD, let me shake it off like…”

“Let me be not so vain to think that I am the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats…”

“Let me remember that the unintended meaning that people project on to what I do is neither my fault or something I can take credit for.”

“Let me not think of…
