Cartoon Network Launches School Program to Promote Artistic Creativity








 I believe that natural talent exists.  I envy those who has talent for drawing.  But it takes a lot of practice for anyone to be better in this craft. I for one cant draw anything but stickmen and I cant even perfect those. But when I attended the Adventure Time Art Fair last July 14 at the Top Draw Animation Theater I was surprised that I could draw. 




Cartoon Network launches Adventure Time Art Fair,  a unique art-based program by Cartoon Network and Top Draw Animation last July 14 with Top Draw's Francis "Kiko" Lerma as guest artist who patiently teached us how to draw by doodling on shapes first like the  rectangle, square and oblong. 

When Top Draw’s Francis “Kiko” Lerma who has 16 years of experience in the industry and has worked on both Exchange Student Zero and Warner Bros.’Teen Titans, teached us how to draw Jake and Finn in minutes, I was surprised that I could draw,  it was not perfect but I know that given the time of practice, I can draw like a pro. 

Starting this month, the initiative brings together workshop and carnival elements to foster imaginative play in schools.

Inspired by the kaleidoscopic world of Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and the rest of the beloved cast of characters from the hit series Adventure Time, the program will visit 10 schools in Metro Manila before the end of September.


Workshops will be conducted by world-class animators and creative directors from Top Draw Animation, a local animation studio which has worked on major international projects including Cartoon Network’s Monster Beach and Exchange Student Zero, a new series premiering this September. Among the instructors tapped for the workshops is Top Draw’s Francis “Kiko” Lerma who has 16 years of experience in the industry and has worked on both Exchange Student Zero and Warner Bros.’Teen Titans.


“We are really looking forward to meeting the students and teaching them about art. And with Cartoon Network’s huge fanbase in Manila, we’re sure to have a fun time drawing the zany characters at the Adventure Time Art Fair,” Kiko said.


Aside from the workshops, kids will learn about various arts and crafts at different art booths where they can create their own Adventure Time character from the series’ magical Land of Ooo.

Participants of the workshop will get to take home a mini-manual containing the step-by-step process of drawing Finn and Jake, and exclusive items from Cartoon Network and Adventure Time.

Gregory Ho, Vice President of Corporate Communication and Marketing at Turner International Asia Pacific, Cartoon Network’s parent company, said: “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.”


The unstoppable duo of Finn and Jake will also be on hand to join in the fun. Guests should look out for surprise games and contests in order to get the chance to win exclusive prizes from Cartoon Network.


The event is in partnership with Seven Seas, McDonald’s, Kinetic Sand and Zest-O; in partnership with Tender Juicy and Milkita; made possible by Jack n’ Jill Knots and Chubby. Media partners are K-Zone and Total Girl.

  5.  I also know that you want to learn how to draw Manga and you know that it is not an easy task. What if I told you a way to draw your favorite manga character just in steps? Or, what if I told you that you will be able to draw your personal character created by your own imagination? mangakakalot
