Lucban Elementary School had its walls beautified with artistic rendition of the city’s famous tourist spots, thanks to its 25 young artist pupils.
The pupils are members of the Lucban Elementary School Young Artist Club (LESYAC) under the tutelage of LES Head Teacher Charmie Basuel which initiated the project as part of their art activities.
The young artists are Hayley Sanchez, Thean Dela Paz, Althea Yves Milanes, Checa Odalio, Abegail Raguindin, Alhzhean Bohol, Curvin Cumafay, Xymon Reparejo, Jia Carreon, Xian Quelie Avecilla, Nathalie Astrero, Jomaree Quartero, Shamille Fangyaren, Shaun Macayan, Shanilaire Tahling, Princess Tumalip, Xia Gail Cruz, Jessrell Dizon, Jilian Aniwas, Zyril Haber, Romela Mariano, Carlo Malintad, Max Adonica Lucagan, Balsi Balaglag and Franchesca Neo.
Mayor Benjamin Magalong and City Engineer Edgar Victorio Olpindo lauded the artistry and sense of community of the pupils and the school teachers who shared their talent, time and resources for the project.
Engr. Richard Lardizabal of the CEO Planning, Programming, and Construction Division who saw the work said the students did an amazing job capturing the city’s tourists spots through their paintings.
“We need to give them recognition for their efforts for their dedication doing the project even outside their school hours and chipping in for the materials and for their food while completing the paintings. The city is grateful for these efforts,” he said. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
