Pastel Color Painting Workshop

Today, I am reminded that we need to be thankful for all the talents that the Lord has given us. And how do we show that we are grateful? We need to share this talent with others. I was reminded of this because I saw these set of images and I was reminded that life is really good and there are so many things that we should be thankful for. When you see a picture and try to interpret it, oftentimes, we see what’s sad, depressing, missing and lacking. We don’t see what makes it amazing, lovely, brighter and happy.

I want to show you something, because these set of images really made my day.










It’s amazing how each one of us has been given wonderful talents that can help lift up people’s moods and make their days brighter. If your children have these gifts and talents, be sure to help them develop it.

Pastel Color Painting Workshop

Pastel Color Painting Workshop

Manila Workshops, together with Young Advocates, will be holding a Pastel Color Painting on October 11, 2014 from 10:30 AM – 1:30 PM at Mothercare, 3/L The Podium Mall, 18 ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. Pastels are a unique painting medium in where colors are mixed on paper by overlaying or blending, rather than on a palette, thus making this kind of painting easier to teach to kids.

The Learning Fee for the workshop is at:

• Early Bird Rate: PHP 1,000 (paid by October 3, 2014) — HURRY!

• Regular Rate: PHP 1,100 (starting October 4, 2014)

They also have a group rate of PHP 900 per participant (for a group of 3 or more participants)

*Fees include all of the materials for the workshop, food and drinks! For the guardians and companions who wish to stay during the workshop, there will be additional PHP 100 fee for food and drinks. To register, please fill out the form found at the Memory Crafters Website:

Teach your Children Art!

Just wanted to share our recent trip to Early Learning Center. I thought that this store only contained toys, but I was surprised that I found these products.

My first scribbler from ELC

Mimi Artist to teach your 18 month old about art!

My first brushes and stampers from ELC

Easy grip stampers from ELC

My first crayons from ELC

Aren’t these the cutest? I’m not the most artistic person in the world. I don’t think I have any skill “at all” in drawing, so that’s actually one of my frustrations. I hope Zeeka can be better at art than I am, so I want to start introducing arts and crafts at an early age. I know that she may be a little too young for the Kokokru Workshop that I shared yesterday, so I was really pleased to see these products from the Early Learning Center!

Since we were there, Zeeka took the time out to check the toys on display…

How do I turn on this thing?

Hmmm, what should I play?
