A faint silence surrounds each of our bodies. The sound of a guitar faintly echoes throughout the Junior High school Building. You can hear a deep breath for a second, and the sound of the first two lines of the song Kaleidoscope World is sung. “So many faces, so many races. Different voices, different choices.” It truly is time.
The week that followed was an extremely eventful one, truly sticking to the theme of a kaleidoscope world. The LSGH Band club sprung out in joy as the entire week saw the performance of different bands in LSGH during the students’ break times. The Lasallian Art Society also had many surprises in store for this kaleidoscopic journey.
As you entered stairway B of the St. Mutien Marie Building, you were greeted by colors of kaleidoscopic patterns on the wall. They spun around and around and could magically be activated by your claps. Beneath the patterns were scale model buildings and pasta booklets that were eye candy. Even more eye candy were the model desserts displayed right behind the pasta booklets.
To make an already magical event even more mystifying, the Arts and Technology coordinator, Mr. Rommel Che Aniceto, invited three LSGH alumni artists to show off their artistic talents for all to see. They painted with colors one could only stop and stare at, and showed off how an artist harvests the fruits of his own hard work and dedication.
One of the artists, LSGH’s very own alumnus, Lee Caces, made a live painting at the cafeteria on the 12th of February. His painting displayed the form of an archer in front of an abstract background that felt as smooth and soothing as the ocean waves. Truly a master of his craft, Mr. Lee also held his own solo exhibit entitled PIVOT at the Altro Mondo-Creative Space, The Picasso Boutique Serviced Residence, Makati City.
As the week closed, a blue paper had been handed to me before the 5th period. I packed my things and headed to my old home, the Integrated Arts room. I was welcomed by beaming aspiring artists of La Salle and yet another artist alumnus of LSGH. This man had the mastery over watercolor, and gave a short but sweet crash course on the medium. The week ended with all of us going home with a new sense of beauty in art.
A faint silence surrounded each of our bodies. The sound of a guitar faintly echoed throughout the Junior High school Building. You could hear a deep breath for a second, and the sound of the first two lines of the song Kaleidoscope World was sung. “So many faces, so many races. Different voices, different choices.” It truly was time. Time for the Arts and Technology week– the Arts Month.
