Affordable Summer Workshops in Marikina City

2,000 pesos for an art workshop with twelve sessions? Just 2,000 pesos?!  Unbelievable, right? I could hardly believe it myself but it is true!  I know for certain because both my kids are already enrolled in two classes. 🙂

3,000 pesos for both classes already 🙂

The Marikina City Tourism, Culture and the Arts Office (MCTCAO) has been offering Summer Art Workshops for several years now. This, however, is our first time to join the workshops so I really can’t tell you what to expect.   What I do know is that this would be a great way to keep the kids busy this summer. The best thing is they get to learn a new skill!
