Having successfully conducted two batches of online workshops within the last four months, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) remains steadfast in strengthening its digital platform to bring theater education and appreciation closer to as many Filipinos as possible. Aimed at providing an avenue for learning and creative expression to professionals of diverse backgrounds from various regions all over the country, Stream 3 of Let’s Get Creative Plus (LGC Plus) is tailored to meet the demands of adults who are looking for professional and personal artistic development in between their busy work-from-home schedules. 

Launching this October, and for the final time this 2020, LGC Plus Stream 3 will be conducted exclusively on weekends. Participants can expect to be immersed in a one of a kind learning experience during the workshops’ five 3-hours sessions conducted on Zoom. With emphasis on practical and on-hand activities guided by PETA’s finest Artist-teachers, the program will be concluded through an online recital.
