Baguio City- Rey Angelo Aurelio , a professional artist from Baguio urged educators to build up art education because this helps enhance critical thinking among learners.
Theater actor and director Aurelio, mentioned that art education is every Filipinos' right during the recent launching of his "Bayani Matrix Project" featuring the Philippine national heroes in his mural art.
"Ang art education po ay hindi isang prebelihiyo kundi isang karapatan at ika nga po ng ating pambansang bayani, ang pluma ay kasing talas ng espada at ang musika at sining ay siyang saysay ng ating kaluluwa," he said.
The Baguio artist created his national heroes mural in 47 days which was launched on the celebration of the Independence day in 12 June. He said that most of the national heroes are artists themselves.
"Marami po sa mga bayani na ito ay artists. Si Juan Luna ay alam nating lahat na pintor ng Spoliarium; Si Andres Bonifacio at Macario Sakay ay mga theater artists sa sarsuela ng abyan; si Jose Rizal ay isang kompositor at nobelista; at si Teresa Magbanua ay isang guro na galing sa Bisayas na tinaguriang 'La Asintada' dahil sa asintado niyang pagbaril sa mga kaaway habang nakasakay sa kabayo," he further accounted.
Through arts and education, he believed that young people's hearts and mind learn to appreciate and love their country.
"Kung palalakasin po natin ang ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) sa ating mga kabataan, sana ganun din po ang lakas ng pwersa upang isulong ang art education," he proposed.
The bill requiring ROTC program for grades 11 and 12 was recently approved by the House of Representatives. HB 8961 would make ROTC mandatory in senior high school if signed into law.
Arnold Empleo, the chief of Department of Education Youth Formation Division urged the audience composed of educators, artists, officials including the newly Baguio mayor-elect Benjamin Magalong and other guests to look up to the examples of the national heroes.
"Isulong ang kadakilaan ng tunay na diwang Pilipino. Ipanalo natin ang ating sariling pagkatao bilang Pilipino. Ang Pilipino'y magiting, manlilikha at imbentor," Empleo said in his speech during the launching of the art murals.
Commissioned by the DepEd, Aurelio's mural was moved from the Baguio Museum for an exhibit to Rizal Building's lobby at the DepEd central office in Meralco Avenue, Pasig city.
The mural will be included in the exhibit together with other portraits and bio sketches of Filipino heroes with the theme "Bayani, sa lupain ng ginto't bulaklak" from 24 June to 5 July.

More PWDs in Mt Province receive assistive device
Noilee Mae of Sacasacan, Sadanga was diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy which impaired her movement, particularly, the half of her body. But as said, God is good and merciful. Days before her 9th birthday on October 8, she received a corrective shoe with adjustable leg brace as an early birthday gift from MRVN Prosthesis Center on October 3, 2019.
Her mother, Maricel Ongan, who is a single parent was grateful upon seeing the glow in her daughter's eyes. The joy that was captured in her daughter's wonderful smile after trying on the assistive device and while guiding her as she practiced to walk with it was priceless.
Noilee Mae together with other eight Persons with Disability (PWDs) received assistive and prosthetic devices during the turnover program at the Provincial Capitol Quadrangle. The provisions of the devices were made possible thru the coordination between the MRVN Prosthesis Center, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Provincial Local Government Unit of Mountain Province.
The recent turnover of assistive and prosthetic devices to PWDs in Mountain Province was the third time for this year. The distribution of the first batch was held in April 2019. The distribution for the second batch of beneficiaries was held on August 1, 2019 where 28 handicapped clients received prosthetic and orthopedic devices.
According to Maria Victoria Ramat Nazarita, operation manager and owner of MVRN Prosthesis Center, the aid to PWDs is a continuous program which aims to help more underprivileged PWDs in the province.
She is thankful to the provincial government headed by Gov. Bonifacio C. Lacwasan, Jr., for being supportive of this endeavor. She thanked the governor for willingly accepting their proposal to reach out to all indigent PWDs for the provision of corrective assistive devices made possible through the PCSO funding and though the financial augmentation by the Provincial Government.
The provincial government's Person with Disability Office (PDAO) was tasked by the governor to help in the completion of documents and the submission of requirements of the beneficiaries to the PCSO as the provision of assistive devices depended on the correctness and completeness of the documents submitted. The governor has also directed the MSWDOs and PWDs to coordinate with PDAO to help with other document requisites for the needs' assessment.
According to PDAO-designate Maria Codeo, her office, in partnership with the PSWDO, has been assessing PWDs to comply with other documentary requirements like valid ID and medical certificate before fully availing of the assistive device.
"The governor wants all disadvantaged PWDs in the province to avail of the program because it will surely raise their self-esteem and capabilities," Codeo said.
Meanwhile, as part of the services of the NVRM Prosthesis Center, its technical staff conducted proper gait training for the beneficiaries.
"We want to ensure that our PWDs are provided with quality and functional assistive devices," said Nazarita.
