PETA Goes Global with its Online Workshop For Kids

Culture

QUEZON CITY, Philippines — In its continuing aim to cultivate learning through its online platform, PETA (Philippine Educational Theater Association) makes full use of its reach on a more global audience this July.

Following the success of Let’s Get Creative Plus, the company’s paid and exclusive online workshop program, the arts and culture association believes that the shift to the virtual platform is not a hindrance for theater enthusiasts to seek opportunities where their love for the arts can intersect with learning.

The class is open to children ages 7-10 years old and will be conducted via Zoom. Classes will be daily from July 19-23, with each session running for two hours. Each class will be limited to ten to twelve (10-12) students, to undergo a fun learning experience facilitated by PETA Artist-Teachers.

Having mastered the online workshop format, PETA has pushed the company into searching for avenues where learning through theater can be broadened and brought to new audiences. PETA will be bringing the Filipino theater experience to children all over the world. With a program centered on OFW families, the company will be bringing its hit workshop, Children’s Theater, to Filipino kids in the Middle East as an initial step into the international market.

Let’s Get Creative Plus – Middle East is a course designed to familiarize children with the tools and skills needed to express their budding creativity. It also serves as an opportunity for kids abroad to reconnect with the Filipino culture through PETA’s signature integrated arts approach, where they will be immersed in the art of rhythmic movement, dance, songs, games, painting, puppetry, storytelling, and role-playing.

The experience is then enriched with the prospect of creating bonds with fellow Filipino kids from different countries exposing themselves to different cultures while strengthening not only their identities as Filipinos, but also as young artists.
