The La Trinidad Arts Society

I envy Baguio City with their Art groups and Societies. I heard that there was a time when the Baguio Arts Guild (BAG) had over five hundred members. Most of the BAG's pioneers were able to establish other popular arts societies as, the Tam-awan Village, Artists at Session, and others. BenCab, a former member, is the most successful to have built his very own museum - a feat that only some artist can dream of.

Solar Painter/Sketch Artist, Sultan came to me one Sunday to propose a project in which I gladly obliged to. I was, after all, an art lover, and an Art workshop for the kids is a very noble project. Luckily, we were able to source out funds from our barangay and were able to give the kids a very memorable experience. Nothing beats the shades and the colors. Nothing beats the feeling of creative accomplishment.

And so after the activity, he asked me if we can start 'it'. How about an Arts Society for La Trinidad? I was waiting for him to say that. :) Of course I would love that.

Conceptualized in 2012, the La Trinidad Arts Society was established by Local Artists; Sultan Mangusan and Valred Olsim from Pico , La Trinidad, Benguet.
