FINAL POSTER

 

Teaching kids Baybayin

kids baybayin

This past 6/30, I was invited to teach Baybayin to kids at the Sama Sama Daycamp. Working with kids is cool as they picked it up pretty fast since it’s syllabic. Adding an art aspect also makes it more interesting. I teach them to use different colors for the kudlits. For advanced studies, I would use different colors for each stroke, vowels, and etc. Interested in a workshop or lecture? Email me info@baybayin.com

Campers will have a unique experience in Tagalog immersion along with an integrated arts and ecology curriculum. The theme this summer is water, tubig! We will explore Philippine myths and lore of water and move our bodies to indigenous dances and music inspired by water. Through hands-on activities and field trips, campers will learn about current water issues both here and in the Philippines

Call for Artists: 2014 Pistahan Parade & Festival

HEADER_MASQUERADES

August 9 & 10, 2014 (Saturday & Sunday)
Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco

We are looking for Artists to come join us at the Art Pavilion (also the home of Baybayin) this August at one of the largest well-known Festival/Parades in S.F, Bay Area – The 2014 Pistahan Parade & Festival. As we come together to celebrate this year’s 21-year anniversary, the heart of S.F is transformed into a 2-day unforgettable weekend-celebration of Filipino Pride, Heritage and Culture. While thousands of people from all over the community come to cultivate in Filipino Culture, we make it a mission at the Art Pavilion to inspire and educate through art. This is a great opportunity to exhibit your original artwork, make a difference in your community and have fun talking about your art!

For this year’s theme, we want to recognize the Visayan Region, where we hope to raise up Tacloban after typhoon Haiyan last year. Kristian Kabuay, one of the organizers of the Art Pavilion, will be highlighting the “The Masskara Festival” – a festival held each year in BacolodPhilippines. We look forward to making this year’s Pistahan fun, friendly and special!

We encourage all aspiring Artists to inquire about the opportunity!

Contact Kristian for inquiries – (925) 396 5969
