Manila: Nearly 17,000 students in the Philippines gathered in a park in the capital, Manila, on Saturday in a bid to set a record for the world's biggest art class.

Middle school pupils from about 200 schools listened for about an hour as a teacher taught them how to draw a mask.

"I learned a lot," said one of the students, Kathleen Pareno.

Organisers said 16,692 students joined the lesson and the figure would be sent to Guinness World Records for an evaluation.

India holds the record for the largest art lesson with 14,135 people taking art in one in 2014, Guinness World Records said on its website.
