Art Congress Lecture- Laad-Linang: Sining Tungo sa Malikhaing Edukasyon
As a student of HUMAART, the lecture I attended impress me through the words of wisdom of the speaker who is a muslim national artist.

Herewith, the lecture also tend to let the students be aware of the national artists we have in our country and make us proud of having them through their achievements. Lastly, the purpose of the lecture is also to inspire...
