• NY-based artist gives free workshop for children


    LUCENA CITY:  Two hundred young potential artists took advantage of the free art workshop given on Sunday, May 25 at the Event Center of SM City-Lucena by renowned realist Ronald Cortez. Cortez, a native of Lucban, Quezon, is now based in New York City but he finds time to impart his talent to his fellow Quezonians. Participants as young as six years old flocked to the event with pencils and sketch pads in hand and listened attentively as Cortez explained the techniques of a realist. He urged parents to encourage artistic children and promised to keep on giving free workshop to potential artists. Cortez also gives free art workshops to the children of the employees of the Philippine Consulate in New York City, where he currently works.
