took an opportunity to record this event through lots and lots of photo shoots. But it wasn't just for show! Admission was FREE but guests were invited to bring and share donations too. Things like art materials, coloring books, writing activity books, old literature books, chalk, baby clothes, towels, bibs and cloth wipes were brought for the beneficiaries of BFF Inc. and LIKHANG BATA. There was also a MILK LETTING room opened to accept breast milk donation for BFF Inc.'s newborn beneficiaries at partner organizations.
VIP guests like multi-awarded artist/ UP professor Anton Del Castillo honored us by cutting the ribbon - officially opening the exhibit, event sponsors Good Housekeeping Editor-In-Chief Tisha Angluben and Human (heart) Nature president Anna Wilk were present to help give-away raffle prizes to all the guests and certificates to the students. Blogger and multi-tasking mommy, Tina Rodriguez of TRULY RICH MOM was also there with her children. She had constantly shared Art Camp updates and images of the exhibit to her readers and online network. Free snacks of chips, crackers and some tasty cupcakes were served to all the guests while delicious coffee by CAFEPINO INSTANT COFFEE was also available. And besides the wonderful artworks by teacher Dindi's talented students, the event venue was filled with so much color by our event stylist sponsor, THE BLUE BUBBLE BALLOONS!
All in all it was a great and fun activity. And it wouldn't have been a success if it weren't for all those who gave their time, shared their talents & skills and believed in the importance of Art education that helped make it happen!
Congratulations to teacher Dindi Manlapaz' Art Masters who participated in the SALAMAT NANAY Art Exhibit:
Likhang Bata Online Gallery and Best For Families Inc. would also like to thank those who brought donations. These will be distributed to LIKHANG BATA and BFF Inc.'s usual beneficiaries like the Macopa Feeding Program in Fairview and various charity institutions for children. LIKHANG BATA now looks on to the next Art Camp batches. And teacher Dindi is excited to see again her former art masters and hopefully a lot of new ones in the coming months!

THANK YOU TO OUR WONDERFUL SPONSORS!
I would like to start this update with thanksgiving to one of my best mommy clients, Tina Rodriguez - she not only exemplifies the patience and strength of a model mother, but she also is a great multi-tasker being a writer, part-time employee, a homeschooling mother to 3 kids, and a housewife to her missionary husband. I'm sure I missed a few more things about her still, but nonetheless, I hope you all got my point!
I am very grateful to her for supporting my cause in Art Education and she is my peg whenever I start to break down in between juggling my "nanay" responsibilities, household chores and my teacher duties. That is why I feel so honored that she was all praises with my ART CAMP program and shared to her readers how her children have benefitted from my classes.
