This time last year, Tippy and I just wrapped up our first leg of Letters and Colors in Manila. We decided to collaborate on this workshop as a way to further educate aspiring artists on the importance of both watercolour and lettering as part of the creative process. Little did we know, we were fortunate enough to have two more classes and an overseas one in Singapore last year.
The best part about this workshop (apart from making art, of course!) is getting to create new opportunities for everyone to learn new things. Even I was able to pick up a few tips from Tippy (ha, pun intended!) as we both worked on the exercise sheets and lesson plan for this joint workshop.
As much as learning is a part of the class, we’re very happy to be able to participate and give back in an upcoming workshop for a cause this May 27th, Saturday, at The Venue Function Rooms, Iloilo City. Letters & Colors Workshop for a Cause is happening this coming weekend, May 27, 2017 from 8:30AM to 4:30PM.
The workshop will tackle different topics like: lettering, creating layouts, mixing colors, watercolor washes, guided project making, and brush lettering. Workshop fee is 1,800 Php for early bird rates until May 18, 2017 and for regular rates is Php 2,100 on May 19 until May 25 but if you bring a friend there’ll be 10% discount for both. Inclusive of 2 personalized name tags by Googly Gooeys and me (for early bird participants), materials to be used in the workshop, lunch buffet, morning and afternoon snacks, exclusive tote bag, take home kit, certificate of attendance, raffle entry, and more surprises.
Proceeds will go to charity which is the SOS Children’s Village, Zarraga in Western Visayas. It is about 20 – 25 minutes from Iloilo City. The SOS Children’s Village has been working in Zarraga since 2003. They provide different kinds of support to the local population. Children who have lost parental care can find a loving home where up to 120 children can be looked after by the SOS mothers. The children grow up with their sisters and brothers in a familial environment full of love, respect, and security.
We will also be selling some of our books + merchandise on the event day, so don’t miss it! See you, Iloilo City!
