libreng art school

Tsinelas is organizing an art school for free to benefit kids from cebu city’s depressed areas. here’s the initial points agreed upon: children will receive free art lessons at the university of san carlos – college of fine arts and architecture in talamban every weekend. a 3-month (or 2-month?) module will be designed. handling the project are fine arts alumni and faculty members of usc-talamban. beneficiaries will be selected from elementary public schools and must come from poor families.

screening of beneficiaries will involve teachers and members of the community to make sure only those who deserve the training will qualify. everything will be provided to the students for free, including fare to and from usc-talamban campus, art materials and snacks during sessions. at the end of the module, a culminating activity will be held where certificates will be distributed and with the usc administration officially recognizing the children’s accomplishments. an exhibit of the children’s art works will be the highlight of the graduation ceremonies. jonggai, a member of tsinelas executive committee, is in the organizing team. thanks jong.

one of our cyberpals, modern patadyong is starting a similar activity, with focus on music. visit her blog and check it out. i salute kristine buenavista for starting it in her hometown in iloilo. i salute all people who make life a lot less difficult for underprivileged kids.

for all visitors to this blog, i invite you to join us. that cup of starbucks coffee you’re holding is worth a year of school supplies for kids in the mountains. think about that.

  1. insoy, thank you sa feature. wala gid ko nag expect 🙂 good luck sa aton (oh nag ilonggo na ko)

    actually we aim to involve both arts and music. we decided to start sa schools so that “schooling” may recognize the “unschooling” portion of education. (i hope teachers, supervisors and DepEd recognize that too)

    we’re going to involve the SK because 10% of the brgy budget is intended for youth development activities pero liga lang permi or bikini open 😀

    it is our honor to exchange ideas with tsinelas. i would be happy to introduce your kawsa sa among grupo ug sa tanan na KASINGgits. this is one thing na nahan ko sa cyberspace life, i got to know great people. I have to thank Sigbin, Rain and the rest of you too na nag inspire na ko 🙂

    *tama na kay murag pang MMK na ani na entry*

  2. you’re welcome kristine. and by the way, translate max surban’s “turagsoy” for me ha. hehehe. 🙂

  3. i’m proud of you. and tintin. and dan. the selfless triangle 🙂

  4. soy, you know someone who gives guitar lessons privately or in a group? aside from salonga music.

  5. or do you give guitar lessons?

  6. hi doc. i have guitarist friends, but i don’t know if they give guitar lessons. and most of them are too wasted to do so. (bwahaha, rakenrol). i used to give ukelele lessons for five- and six-year-old kids in a prep school near our place (but that’s ukelele, anyway). i’ll ask around. 🙂

  7. soy, kay ang akong bugoy gustong mag gitarista, unya stage mama man kaayo ta, ako ipa lessons para sakto ang makat-onan. hehehehe!
