Pacita's Children
Pacita Abad never had any children of her own, but always called her more than 4,500 artworks "her children". However, she always wanted to paint like a child and have her artwork be free, colorful and playful. Perhaps that is why Pacita loved working with children, and they loved Pacita and her colorful artwork.

Pacita never turned down a request to help teach children and students of all ages about the joy of making art and she gave hundreds of workshops and art lessons to students around the globe. After her passing, teachers and children are still captivated by her colorful work and life, and students in many countries continue to create new artworks inspired by Pacita.Watch video
