Global Art - Regular and Summer Programs

Pin It


Rap was able to have a free trial class in the Global Art booth during the Galileo event held last February 13, 2010 at the NIDO Fortified Science Discovery Center. He was given a piece of paper with a drawing of a whale on it and was asked to color it using oil pastel. His first attempt was ok but it clearly lacked artistic quality. Simply put, it just looked like how a normal kid would color a picture using ordinary crayons.

I saw how my son handed his work over to the art teacher. He was not too proud about it and looked at me like he was asking me to take him to another booth already. But his teacher just smiled and gave him another copy of the same drawing. He was asked to color it again but, this time, with the guidance of the art teacher.

coloring properly

I admit, between me and my husband, it's him that is very artistic. I can draw pictures, yes. But when it comes to coloring pictures, you can compare my work to those done by my former preschool students, hahaha! I don't know how to blend colors to give a picture some depth. That is what Rap's art teacher taught him that day and I found it surprisingly easy! In a few minutes, Rap's "whale" had come to life by blending different shades of blue and grey and white and yellow. He finally looked proud of what he had done.

Seeing how happy and comfortable he was with his artwork made me decide to enroll him in Global Art Ortigas this summer. I already inquired about the art school's programs and I was told that Rap will be starting with the Basic Level. This is the breakdown of the fees:
  • Registration Fee (inclusive of Bag and T-Shirt) : Php 1,000
  • Workbook (lasts for 4 months) Php 805
  • Oil Pastel set (lasts for more than 1 year): Php 470
  • Training Fee (8 hours per month): Php 2,500
  • Total: Php 4,775
After that initial payment, we would only need to pay Php 2,500 monthly until he finishes his set of workbooks for the Basic Level.

This summer, Global Art Ortigas will also offer a summer art program which consists of Art (Php 6,300), Arts and Crafts (Php 6,900), and Crafts and Clay (Php 4,570) classes. For more information about the program, you can contact Global Art Ortigas (which is also serves as its headquarters) through calling 515-7005 or 726-0435. Global Art Ortigas is located at Unit 101, Sekai Center, 368 Ortigas Ave. corner Madison Street, Greenhills, San Juan.

Galileo Enrichment Learning Program

Pin It


Nowadays, kids are so busy in school that learning inside the classroom becomes just one of the many stressful activities they go through every day. In my son's school, for one, there are more than thirty students in one class and lessons are taught in a traditional classroom setting. Pupils are almost left to themselves when it comes to comprehending the concepts taught. I was a preschool teacher and a tutor and I know how important it is for us to realize children's different learning styles. This is often forgotten in a traditional classroom that's why most children need after-school help nowadays.


Galileo's Astronomical Birthday

There are many after-school learning programs in the Metro today. I haven't tried most of them with my son since I have extra time to assist him in his lessons at home. Often, I rely on what I read and hear from other parents. Last February 13, 2010, Rap and I were given the chance to sneak a peek into the meaningful, exciting, and fun techniques of the Galileo Enrichment Learning Program.

Ms. Irene Lucas and Prof. Galileo
Professor Galileo and Ms. Irene Lucas, GM of Galileo Enrichment Learning Program

Galileo Enrichment Learning Program celebrated Galileo Galilei's birthday which was happening two days after the event. The said program is obviously named after the "Father of Scientific Revolution" and has embraced the telescopic approach to learning. It aims to help children ages 3 to 12 a more exciting and fun way of learning Math and English.

solving math equations while creating art

Take for example, the photo above. It looks like Rap was just coloring a page out of a coloring book, right? Actually, he is solving an addition problem because the sum tells him the kind of color to use on a particular spot. Now, that's a whole different way to look at numbers! That's the whole point of the program - for children to enjoy learning tasks and not to be scared or bored of them.

I'm actually interested in enrolling Rap if only there's a Galileo center that is near our home. There are, in fact, 12 school based learning centers and 9 stand alone centers in Metro Manila and Laguna. You can check out the link to find one near you.
