When Pinoy Stop launched an art exhibit featuring works of Pinoy kids, I wondered if my son Jo-Lo would be interested in participating. He is actually good at arts and crafts, but he's been spending more time on Minecraft lately so I was not particularly sure. I floated the idea to him, but it wasn't until a couple of weeks before the deadline that he said he wanted to join. I made a couple of visits to the art store for acrylic paint, various bits of paper and we were off!
Jo-Lo made a total of 5 artworks. 3 are paper weaving types which is reminiscent of the banig, the woven mats used for sleeping in the rural areas. Two were of a simple pattern, with a third giving him more challenge as it was more intricate and and had a bigger base. His other artwork was a Christmas lantern where he used eggshells and acrylic. And lastly, he painted a pop art of his favourite fast food chain Jollibee.
