(SPOT.ph) Each of us have a couple of stories from childhood. You may have probably seen a baby bird hatching in your backyard, heard a hair-raising tale in the dark while at your grandmother's house, or climbed a tall tree. Members of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan, the Philippines' first and only organization of illustrators for children, are reliving these stories from the past through an art exhibition titled INKwento: Stories from Childhood. It opens on November 9, 5 p.m. at the College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines - Diliman.
Members of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK) are using a wide range of media for their works, such as paper, pen and ink, colored pencils, markers, and even digital. Stories to be featured are: Game Over, which is about a huge plant with a trunk full of eyes; My Lola's Kitchen, which looks into the treasure-filled kitchen of a grandmother; Newborn, which tells a heartwarming story of a baby bird; and Luto-lutuan, which follows two kids playing with clay pottery with their mother.
Aside from the exhibit, Ang INK is also holding a pop-up sale of prints and postcards at 1 p.m.; a workshop on pricing and intellectual property rights also at 1 p.m.; and art talks at 3 p.m. The next schedule of the two-part event is on November 16, which features a seminar on the power of illustration in addressing children's rights at 1 p.m.; and a talk on the making of Si Kian at 3 p.m.
INKwento: Stories from Childhood opens on November 9 at Arts and Design Hall, College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines - Diliman, Quezon City. For more information, follow Ang INK on Facebook.
