The Metropolitan Museum of Manila invites you to an illustration workshop for kids! This event features the illustrated children’s book “Kapit Kapit Bahay Bahay” and artworks from the museum collection.
 
To all children 6-12 years old, come draw with illustrator Gelai Manabat of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK)! She will have a telling of the children’s book and share tips and tricks on drawing like a visual storyteller. Together, let's explore and experiment with our personal drawing styles!
 
The workshop asks children the core question, What is a community? In the time we have been cooped up at home and our world feels smaller, this program gives kids the opportunity to think outwards and notice what is going on around them. By drawing the people they see and the places they go, we aspire for children to reflect on their interactions and roles to play within their communities.
