Cartoon Network and Top Draw Animation have teamed up to do an Adventure Time Art Fair school tour in Manila, Philippines which will start from tomorrow (16/07/2015). The Adventure Time Art Fair school tour will visit ten schools in Manila’s metropolitan area. The art fair will feature workshop and carnival elements. Animators and creative directors from Top Draw Animation, known for animating Monster Beach and the new upcoming Cartoon Network series, Exchange Student Zero will be hosting the event. One of the animators at the event will be Francis “Kiko” Lerma known for his work on Warner Bros. Animation’s Teen Titans and is currently working on Exchange Student Zero. The purpose of the event is to teach children about art by using the artwork and character designs from Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time as a prime example.
Apart from the workshops, there will be an opportunity to learn about various arts and crafts and children will get to draw their very own Adventure Time character. Everyone who attends the art fair will get to take home instructions for drawing Finn and Jake, and exclusive goodies from Cartoon Network.
Francis “Kiko” Lerma is looking forward to the event and looking forward to teaching students about art, this is what he said:
We are really looking forward to meeting the students and teaching them about art. And with Cartoon Network’s huge fan-base in Manila, we’re sure to have a fun time drawing the zany characters at the Adventure Time Art Fair.
Gregory Ho, VP of Corporate Communication and Marketing at Turner Asia Pacific made this statement about the Adventure Time Art Fair:
“We want to encourage kids to tap into their huge well of creativity and the Adventure Time Art Fair is the perfect place for them to express their artistic talent. We’d like to thank all the schools that have agreed to participate in the event, and for allowing us to help supplement the curriculum with a big dose of fun”
Exchange Student Zero will premiere on Cartoon Network Southeast Asia in September.
