Antipolo Mayor Jun Ynares vows to support fine arts education of young artist
Antipolo Mayor Jun Ynares will make sure that an artist from the city who drew his portraits will be able to study to hone her talent.
In a Facebook post, Ynares said being an artist takes courage and is not easy.
When he visited artist young artist Arantxa at her home, he learned that she started drawing when she was six years old and just practiced her skills on her own by watching anime as she could not afford to go to art school.
She also joined art groups and continued to sketch.
She buys her art supplies from her earnings from her drawings.
Arantxa is a big dreamer and hopes to study fine arts, but her family would not be able to afford it, the mayor said.
He would come to her aid, he said.
He would not let her talent go to waste, and he would look for ways to enroll her in a fine arts course as his scholar, he said.
He would also give her a chance to work at city hall while studying.
By drawing Ynares’ portrait, the young artist has a chance to change her life for the better!
