400 Esquire’s Origami Workshop for Gawad Kalinga Laura 5 of 5
Written by Kuya Harvard
It was our fifth installment of Art related workshops with Gawad Kalinga Laura in Taguig last November 29. We got Kuya Robby Singh once again to facilitate. Origami, the Japanese art of folding paper, was the theme this time around. He got big white cartolinas to teach 4 types to 11 big groups present. The first was a box. It was followed by three animals which were more complex but exciting- rabbit, dog and chicken puppet. Everyone also got to add to their masterpiece more personality through colors.
Before this Kuya Harvard took the time to get everyone acquainted through getting to know questions and a game called Shape It Up. Here, volunteers together with their partnered kids form a shape mentioned by the host while holding each other. The team that forms the shape first wins a point. The last one was Lechon, a popular dish during the upcoming Christmas season. It was portrayed creatively by a number of groups.
We also got Ate Ren dela Cruz, one of our core team leaders to dance with the kids to get everybody going. She will also be performing and dancing with the kids next week on our sixth encounter with GK Laura. It will be our Christmas celebration with them. If you wish to join that one, please contact us.
