Kids Channel their Inner Master Artists at the KidZania National Art and Design Academy3:24:00 AM
In KidZania Manila, where misters and misses are the building blocks of their community, kids can now see the world they run in a whole, new colorful light with the opening of the National Art and Design Academy. In partnership with National Bookstore and Dong-A, the play city now has avenue in creating masterpieces and expressing themselves artistically.
KidZania Manila’s National Art and Design Academy was launched last April 9, 2016, through a gathering of Filipino artists. Hosted by LA Ferriols, the launch gave attendees a sneak peek into the exciting and art-filled experience that kids are set to enjoy.
The event was also graced by special guests including art prodigy Hamzah Marbella, visual artist Tokwa Peñaflorida and graphic artist Dan Matutina.
A live activity demonstration of what the kids can experience inside the academy also took place with the help of the guest artists joined by KidZania misters and misses. To cap off the event, guests were treated to a delicious lunch served by Via Mare.
Artists for a better world
As the only interactive mini-metropolis where kids can explore, discover, and learn how the real world works, KidZania Manila has more than 70 establishments and features over 100 role-playing activities that kids aged four to 14 years can enjoy. Every role is fun, hands-on, and engaging, stretching out each kid’s creativity and imagination to their full potential.
The National Art and Design Academy offers fun-filled painting and drawing activities that allow kids to craft memorable pieces. By painting a stained glass window or a wall mural, misters and misses can color KidZania-inspired images to their hearts’ delight and earn 8 kidZos. Kids can also pay 15 kidZos to join painting and drawing classes. A maximum of 15 minutes is provided for the creative exercise and some artists-in-training can even bring home their finished artwork right after. Participating CitiZens also receive higher salary or pay less to join the activity.
Within the establishment’s activities, the fun and learning continue as kids experiment with watercolor, using Dong-A supplies. Misters and misses can surely produce works of art as their canvas becomes their own personal playground.
Let your kids discover and hone their artistic potential and let their imagination run free to create their own masterpieces only at KidZania Manila’s newly opened National Art and Design Academy. The play city is open every day: Mondays to Thursdays (9AM-4PM); and Fridays to Sundays (9AM-2PM and 3-8PM). To book tickets and for more information, visit manila.kidzania.com.
