ART IMITATING ART (AIA)

Ten (10) amazing artworks by the 10 Wanna be Artists! They created these during the ARAL PINOY'S FREE Acrylic Painting Lesson for A Cause, with the theme: ART IMITATING ART (AIA). Aral Pinoy launched today a fund-raising amazing artworks! This event for a cause is a collaborative initiative between Art Party Ph and Aral Pinoy. The proceeds collected out of the paintings that will be sold will be used for the schooling assistance of the Aral Pinoy Scholars for the school year 2019-2020. Aral Pinoy is grateful to all the support given by those who are involved on this event that they made it possible by their love and generosity. Through their amazing artworks, they are offering one of the many solutions to solving the problem for the need for teaching Good Manners and Right Conduct (GMRC) by teaching through Art and Values Integration (AVI) by raising the awareness on HUMAN VALUES as many outside factors influence children’s values in this new age. These are the FIVE HUMAN VALUES, namely, (1) Truth, (2) Righteousness / Justice, (3) Peace, (4) Love and (5) Non-Violence that are already embedded in them and inherent in the society and are also found cross-culturally and in all spiritual traditions/religions. With the theme: ART IMITATING ART (AIA), these 10 Wanna be Artists imitated or copied a portion of a cubism artwork of Pablo Picasso, the Guernica, a style of painting showing objects that are fractured into geometric forms and using multiple and contrasting perspectives in a single painting. "It is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history, and is one of Picasso's best known works." Those who will buy these artworks will not only have the joy of appreciating them or beautifying their homes or offices, they will be investing for the future of Aral Pinoy Scholars. Buy now and invest for their future. The artworks’ prices start from P2,000 pesos. See the posting of each of the artwork of the following the 10 Wanna be Artists soon! https://aralpinoy.pixieset.com/aralpinoysfreeacrylicpaintinglessonforacauseartimitatingartaia/

The subject of the paintings is inspired by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s famous piece “GUERNICA” in context with the 1937 Spanish Civil War as expressed today by the Aral Pinoy Volunteers-Artists. The purpose of these anti-war arts is to cultivate peacemakers and a culture of peace through painting. https://aralpinoy.pixieset.com/aralpinoysfreeacrylicpaintinglessonforacauseartimitatingartaia/ Read more here: https://www.pablopicasso.org/guernica.jsp Guernica (Spanish: [ɡeɾˈnika], Basque: [ɡernika]) is a large oil painting on canvas by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso completed in June 1937. Now in the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, the gray, black, and white painting was done at Picasso's home in Paris. It is regarded by many art critics as one of the most moving and powerful anti-war paintings in history,and is one of Picasso's best known works.

It involved the bombing of civilians by a military air force, allegedly a war crime, at the time unparalleled in military history and brandished as one of the first crimes against humanity to grip the global imagination.

Support Aral Pinoy Project Baon (Schooling Assistance)

 
Modesty aside, prior to finishing my doctoral studies in ASI on May 2011 (last year), I was blessed to have my two masteral studies in DLSU (year 2000 and year 2005).  On March 13, 2012 ( seven years later) I got a letter from Br. Narciso S. Erguiza, Jr. FSC, President and Chancellor of DLSU, and offers me this prayer:


May you be as Lasallian as ever,
and your actions be fuelled by faith.
May your heart be aflame for service,
and your life be one in the mission.

May you continue to make
Lasallian education in the Philippines
truly meaningful not only today (present time)
but for a century more (future time).

Let God's blessing for every Lasallian
be returned blessings to others,
and let your work be your song of praise
to the Lord, forevermore.

Aral Pinoy is launching the Aral Pinoy Project Baon and is now searching and accepting sponsorships for the school year 2016-2017 and school year 2017-2018. 

See our Aral Pinoy Scholars here since school year 2011-2012: http://aralpinoy.blogspot.com/2011/06/aral-pinoy-project-baon-scholars.html

The AP scholars are kids of farmers/fishermen in Batangas who some of them have not able to get even an elementary education.

AP is helping them so that in the future when they will have families of their own they will not repeat the same cycle of not being able to send their kids to school.

AP wishes that they will be able to finish at least in high school education and to be able to graduate in college is already so much blessings.

Please help them, share and find generous individuals like you.

You may text me at 09178661006 or email me at ingles.antonio@gmail.com

Thank you very much and God bless you more!

A Reflection by Karen Tan (grabbed without permission from her FB account)


Aral Pinoy goes to Sitio Taguisan on March 26, 2016...


March 24, Thursday, while doing Bisita Iglesia with my cousin, i was looking around the churches and there were tarpauline saying feed the hungry that caught my attention. At the back of my mind, i am already planning an outreach program to celebrate my birthday this coming May. I already know whom to tap for donations and will ask family members and some closest friend to help. Wrote down my plan in a small notebook before i went to bed.

March 25, Good Friday. Woke up, checked Facebook and there the first thing i saw was the post of my former campus ministry [volunteer] coordinator Antonio Ingles that he needs volunteers and donations of 100 cupcakes are also needed for Aral Pinoy's feeding program on Black Saturday. Without any hesitation, I replied to the post and said YES I can make it to the day of the outreach and that the 100 cupcakes is on me. While having breakfast, i suddenly remembered that our pantry is already short of eggs and flour. I just prayed and asked for guidance. Guidance that i would not make any mistakes, that the eggs that we currently have would fit 3 recipes, and that flour would just be exact or enough for the recipe. Lastly, presence of mind in dividing the batter so that I could yield minimum of 100 cupcakes (kahit saktong 100, ok lang kahit wala ng sobra for mom to eat ok lang she would understand). Thank God, I produced more than 100 cupcakes. :)

I have no idea where Sitio Taguisan is, when i got a text message from Sir Toni that we would meet in St. Therese of The Child Jesus Parish Church in Marcos Highway, I was so happy. I am a devotee since i was in high school, and it would be my first time to to this church, I was actually more excited to make a wish more than anything else. :)

Sitio Taguisan, first reaction "o ok pala dito parang exclusive village sa bundok" but no. We just parked somewhere in that village and went to the mountain.

I am so humbled to be part of this outreach program of Aral Pinoy.

To Sir Toni, thank you for the opportunity. Thank you for still believing in me that i still do have a heart of a volunteer. Thank you, that you served as my eye opener that i still can bake even though i was at this point that i wanted to sell out all my baking equipment because i have already lost passion. Thank you for bringing the old me back again. Just like Jesus, i have risen :)

To my new found friends, Kimberly Co, Juvelyn Samson, Andrea Des Dangeros Tria, Sheena Katrina Aragon Orihuela, Crizel Ruth Ghelmae Ricaro, thank you, thank you for your super grand welcome to me. More volunteer work for us! :)

To Sitio Tuguisan, thank you for having us. Hope everyone had a great time. Hope to be able to visit you guys again.
