Healing through Arts

With the goal of enlightening the youth on their rights as children and provide them a venue to express themselves through different artistic outlets, the Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines, led by its honorary Consul General and PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies President and CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier, held an art therapy program called “Healing Through Arts”, for 15 orphaned children from the Department of Social Welfare and Development-Research and Study Child Center (DSWD-RSSC) at Museo Pambata recently.

The program, in partnership with the Museo Pambata and the Art Dialogo, invited Anna Karina Jardin, founding artist of Art Dialogo Asia and renowed visual artist Khristina Manansala to teach the participating children introduction to colors, painting, and drawing. Top paintings were chosen at the end of the workshop to be displayed in the Museo Pambata.

Moreover, the children were also introduced to the Republic of San Marino. The volunteers from the Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines have also prepared games, lunch, and certificate of participation for the attendees. Nina Lim-Yuson, CEO of Museo Pambata also graced the event.

“The Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines has always been supportive of the introduction and appreciation of arts to the children. We hope that through this simple event, we were able to impart knowledge to the kids not only of the arts but also of the San Marino as a country,” Republic of San Marino Honorary Consul General Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

The Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines plans to continue the art therapy program for the children of DWSD-RSCC and its other beneficiaries and culminate the program through a day of celebration to be held in November for the Children’s Month.
