Ang INK Fest 2013

Ang INK Fest

A Celebration of Creativity in Children’s Literature

It was indeed a busy Saturday. I attended to the kids’ dance presentation for the Family Day and went to the Ang INK Fest right after. It was a bit struggle balancing the time and preserving my energy level because the morning event needs physical strength like dancing and even running after the little kids. But still, I was able to attend the fest together with my co-teacher.  We were able to listen to the talented speakers (the  children’s book illustrators) and got inspired with their creativity as they touched lives of other people.
