Every October, Bacolod City is turned upside down because of the almost month-long festivities for the world-renowned MassKara Festival. And this year, the Bacolod Homeschoolers don’t want to miss the fun as a group so we also had our own activity that is related to the MassKara 2016–a mask painting activity.

We held it in the showroom of a famous Bacolod figure– Jojo Vito of the Jojo Vito Designs Gallery. Vito is the man behind the famous fiberglass masks that are used by the MassKara Queen Pageant and even those who participate in streetdancing competitions. He also makes giant masks for those who want to use them as wall or building decor for the occasion. He has some Bacolod pasalubong items as well. Since we are homeschooling, it’s okay for us to just go out even if it’s the middle of the work week.

The kids were given fridge magnet masks as incentive for finishing their masks.

Mr. Vito prepared masks made of plaster of Paris for the kids. For P180 per child, the mask painting activity came with brushes and odorless latex paints. As a treat because some of our delegation are young kids, he also said that he will give away little mask fridge magnets to those who can finish painting their masks. The kids were all excited with painting their masks and everyone got to finish painting. It was a short but fun activity and we were thankful that despite Mr. Vito being all busy during MassKara Festival time, he still managed to squeeze in some time for us.

The kids painted their masks in different ways so they were able to express themselves through colors.

We have several activities lined up for November and for December we will have our Christmas party. homeschooling in Bacolod families are happy that for this outing, we have a new member family. Some of our future plans is to level up the network into more than just a venue for outings of the Bacolod homeschoolers. We may have training and workshops for parents, too. Our next project is formulating our mission and objectives, which will be a collaborative work with another homeschooling mom.
