Artistic Expressions, Enrichment, From the Teacher, Weekends
If you are looking for a unique place to visit for the long weekends this August, consider going to Pinto Art Museum.
The California Mission-looking architectural structures built amongst trees in a hilly subdivision in Antipolo houses modern contemporary art by Filipino artists.
Here are some photos albeit not too clear because I forgot to bring my camera, hence only had mobile photos:
artworks on display in galleries using natural lights
The Rainforest room
go up the rooftop and see the wonders beyond the walls of the museum while delighting on soaking up the sun’s warmth
gallery on walls that look like a home, yes, it is possible to mix a home-y atmosphere and the arts
More photos here.
Art collector Dr. Joven Cuanang is the owner of Pinto Art Museum which was designed by Architect Antonio Leano. Pinto Art Museum used to be called Silangan Gardens. Silangan Gardens is the home of Silangan Foundation of the Arts, Culture and Ecology with galleries built back in 2001 by Architect Leano.
One can spend an entire morning or afternoon looking at Pinto Art Museum’s treasure trove of contemporary (and modern) Philippine art. Pinto Art Museum is open from 9a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesdays-Sundays.
Pinto Art Museum is at No. 1 Sierra Madre Street, Grand Heights, Antipolo City, Rizal. Call tel. 6971015; e-mail email@example.com.

From the Teacher, Philippines
As a former homeschooling mom, I found it a bit difficult at first to know about homeschooling in the Philippines. It was really a blessing that we came to know about Bro. Bo Sanchez‘s Catholic Filipino Academy and for three years, this was where my two younger children were enrolled in. The two children are homeschoolers no more but we still look back fondly at the times we get to spend day after day learning new things and strengthening our bond as a family.
Homeschooling in the Philippines is a relatively new venture when it comes to educating the nation’s young citizens. It is in this regard that Homeschooling Association of the Philippines Islands (HAPI) will have its 4th Homeschooling Conference.
The Philippine Homeschool Conference is set to take place on May 19, 2012 5/F St. Francis Square, Julia Vargas Ave. cor Bank Drive, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City with the theme “Laying a Strong Foundation”.
International speaker Debra Bell a homeschooling authority in the U.S. and best-selling author, and our own inspirational speaker and author Bo Sanchez are slated as keynote speakers. The event will be honored by the presence of Dep Ed officials.
To know more about the Homeschooling Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI) or how to register for the Conference, visit www.hapihomeschooler.com and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download the registration form here.
