Around November last year, I had the privilege of volunteering for MovEd Org: a non-profit organization that advocates for early childhood education. My friend Aira was the main artist who designed the proposed murals for their classrooms in Navotas. She asked Hannah and I to help in painting the murals. We thought we were supposed to paint a wall each. Nope! Instead, we each got a classroom HAHAHA.
As volunteer artists, we were asked to sketch and translate Aira’s designs to the walls so the volunteers can easily color them. Sort of like a giant coloring book.
We used the org’s readily available paints. I think the paint was already old since we had a hard time applying it to the wall. So we had to reapply another layer for every flower.
Some of the volunteers were from MovEd PH, teachers, parents, and some students as well! It was a community effort to help improve the classrooms in Navotas.
It took us the whole day, but we finished all 3 classrooms!
Congrats to Aira for the beautiful design concepts! And thank you to MovEd PH for the opportunity! We had a great time. Thank you for inviting us. ♥

Led a mural activity for @moved_orgph 😁 We painted 3 classrooms today! I never thought my paintings would end up on walls but here we are ✨ I wanted them to look bright and cheery with the kids in mind. A beautiful learning environment does wonders after all ❤️ Thank you MovEd for the amazing experience! Thank you also to my two talented friends @suffnirain and @hmb_urger for giving me a helping hand today 😭
