Can you believe that my 7 year old Kailee made that? No prior lesson before taking our current one with #GlobalartPhilippines. I can’t even begin to describe the pride I have in my heart. I’m in awe, I still can’t believe it. I am currently just staring at it, looking silly because of the huge smile I have one. I am beyond impressed. And to think, this is only her third class. AMAZING, right?
Even before I had Kailee, I have heard of Globalart from friends. I knew it had one branch, the one in Ortigas, Greenhills – and I knew of some friends who would go all the way to Greenhills just to have their kids join their classes. Of course, at that time – I wasn’t interested as I didn’t have kids yet. But for the past year, Kailee has been showing interest in drawing. She would use up all of my bond paper at home drawing all sorts of things. I would buy her crayons and paint and she would just do what she felt like doing. If you can see our bedroom, one wall is filled with her drawings and artworks (hers and Connor’s). I have asked if she wanted to take classes, but she has said no. I was very happy though, that before the end of the school year – she told me that she wanted to take classes. It just so happened that this opportunity came up, talk about perfect timing – right?
I brought Kailee and Connor to Globalart Philippines in Greenhills for their assessment. At the same time, I met Yenny Saw the master franchiser of Globalart Philippines. I was glad that she was there, as she was able to tell me the different levels that Globalart offers. I used to think that they were merely teaching the technique of coloring. I was wrong, there were other levels like sketching and drawing, comic book drawing, painting (water color and acrylic) and even clay molding! It’s really nice that there are other levels – for other *art* related interests.
Kailee was put in the advance class and she chose painting over drawing/sketching. I have to say, I was quite surprised with her decision – because she had been doodling most of the time. Connor was as expecting in the basic beginners class, so he can master the coloring technique. He was disappointed because he wanted to do painting, I had to explain to him that he needed to have this basic skills first and by the time he’s 7, I’m sure he’d be the same level as Kailee is now.
The Greenhills branch is really lovely, it’s clean, well lit, the AC is working fine, you’ll know when you’re there that the place is well maintained. The staff is cheery (which I really really like), they are helpful and would always greet you with a smile. I met some students too and they seem to love it there too. So I knew, right there and then – that Globalart is the right place to enroll my kids for art lessons. And I’m glad I did – as I have this pride in my heart with their achievements – 3 classes in. Impressive right?
So, call and inquire on the programs Globalart Philippines has to offer your child. I’m sure you’ll find one that will pique the interest of your child. They have different locations too around the Metro, you will surely find that is near you. They also have branches outside of Manila.
I will go out of my way and say to try and visit the Globalart Cebu branches if you live in Cebu – because my good friend Carissa is the franchisee there and her daughter Bea has won awards in the Globalart competitions outside of the country. Another branch I will plug is my cousin in law’s branch – Globalart Del Monte. I hear they have one of the BEST teachers in the Metro. If you live in the area, you may inquire by calling 02-6660033!
