Why teach art to children?

We’re sure some of you are wondering why Layag is focusing on teaching art to children around the Philippines. Why teach art? What can the children get from learning art?

One of the biggest reason we have is this:  Learning the arts aid the development of a child’s potential. The arts are a central force in human existence. We believe that we should tap all possible resources in the shaping of the children’s future.

Our main objective is to inspire the children all around the country to pursue bigger dreams through the arts. Not only is learning the arts enjoyable and fun, these learning experiences contribute to the development of academic skills, social and motivational skills that are considered basic for success in school, work and life.


Layag is accepting donations of art supplies such as used/scrap/recycled paper, crayons, watercolors, oil pastels, colored pencils, paint brushes, and the like. If you would like to help, please send us an email at layagforthearts@gmail.com
