Community Outreach

Art workshops are great venues for art appreciation.
From learning and understanding a craft to exploring
ideas and eventually trying it out for themselves.
It is one of my powerful programs for generating
audiences for art exhibitions and museum visits.
It is also an excellent tool for healing and therapy!
A whole-day fun activity with kids ages 5 to 8 from the Barangay San Vicente, Laguna. Accompanied by their parents and with some of the local government officials as observers who later participated in the activity!
