Experience free art activities at Rizal Park this June
See you at kilometer zero!
(SPOT.ph) Rizal Park in Manila is the chosen venue for Arts in Public Spaces, which is being held every weekend, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., until July 10. The project, which hosts various public art activities, is spearheaded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the National Parks Development Committee.
The Philippine landmark is both a peaceful oasis in the busy Philippine capital and a symbol of the country's tumultuous history. Spread over its 60 hectares are lawns, gardens, ponds, and paved walks, as well as statues of other heroes, as well as a 46-meter flagpole.
With such beauty and history, it is fitting that Rizal Park is the venue for art-filled sessions that are free and open to the public. At the first edition last May 28 to 29, kids and kids-at-heart joined the chalk art activity.
The next one, which will happen this weekend on June 4 to 5, will feature a storytelling session at the children's playground, as well as a baybayin writing workshop. There will also be booths for henna tattoos at Kanlungan ng Sining on June 11 to 12 and silk-screen printing at the Senior Citizen's Garden on June 18 to 19. A ballpen art workshop will be held at the Binhi ng Kalayaan Garden on June 25 to 26.
For those who can't attend the June festivities, there will be an origami-making session at the Japanese Garden on July 2 to 3 and a kite-making seminar at Burnham Garden on July 9 to 10.
