A World of Art and Imagination in Museo Pambata

Yesterday, the Museo Pambata unveiled a new career options room that highlights the works of well-loved Philippine children's books' authors and illustrators. Blue Cow Inc.’s comic book characters, Private Iris and Danton Cord, graced the event and took guests on a tour around the big room to learn the process of writing and illustrating through comic book panels that line the colorful walls.

Kid guests enjoyed trying out the masks and costumes at the Dress Up Area, browsing the many books at the Storytelling Section, having their pictures taken at the various story characters' standees, etc.

Several of the featured authors and illustrators came to meet and greet guests. My son had several photos taken with two of his favorite authors, Dr. Luis Gatmaitan of the famous Tito Dok series; and Private Iris creator, Jamie Bautista.

The room was developed through a common advocacy for children's literacy shared between Museo Pambata and Blue Cow Inc., a subsidiary of the Pioneer group of insurance companies. Their goal is to encourage and inspire young minds to explore their talents and hone their skills. Through Private Iris, Blue Cow Inc. supports the museum's continued thrust in educating children via unique and interactive exhibits such as those also found throughout the whole museum.

Discover Museo Pambata today and let your kids, (and yourself!), experience the wonders of becoming inspired enough to go after one's dreams. For more information, visit the Museo Pambata website.
