I woke up excited this Saturday morning as this would be the very 1st Face-to-Face Saturday Art Classes that we will have since 2019.  We were supposed to launch the 1st class on March 2019, but pandemic occur.  We were not able to launch our school and the author just continued developing programs and learning materials for our website.  You will find useful lessons through our Free Art Lesson tab.  
Learning on your own, without a mentor or someone to critique your work is difficult.  As a learner, you would appreciate the guidance of an art teacher.  Though art maybe innate for our children, having a teacher speeds up the process of learning.
We always wanted to develop the skills of children and adults in creative arts.  But many of the offered classes are quite expensive.  And so we tried to trim down the cost of having a class by taping our friends to share their abode as venue for classes.  Luckily, Ms. Leslie Esternon helped us by opening her doors for our learners.  
The families or the parents will also spend more buying art materials.  But as a learned artist, we know that it is very essential to understand our materials first before we buy expensive branded products when we can secure less expensive art materials through bulk orders.  This is one of our strategies to lower the cost of the classes.  Thus, as part of our two-days session, we already added the handouts, drawing materials and the 2-days workshop session at Leslie's place.  
The first live class started on October 22, 2022, 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.  We had 10 students, four of which are teenagers and six are from age 8 to 10 years old.  The younger children are guided by Ate Rose and the teens are guided by Lolo Rey.  It was fun and they were given assignments so that they will be able to learn practice what they learned.  Here are some of the shots for the 1st day...

Despite the massive number of entries, ARTipolo was able to piece together the works and created a larger collage of colors. The collection looked like a mural and these pieces may be bought as a bundle or one can even choose among those on display to design their residences with sights and images depicting Antipolo City.

Each artist closely looked at subjects that best fits the theme of the group. You will see Antipolo's native delicacies and food like kasoy and suman; endemic plant like the Tipolo leaves where the group's logo is patterned; as well as beautiful maidens garbed in the locale costume. To give you a peek, we have attached photos of the exhibit below. But it is still best to see it in person.

The exhibit "Silangan" will run from October 12 to 30 at SM Angono. Viewing is free and all paintings are available for sale. You may immediately bring home the bought masterpieces. Run now before it gets taken away!
