OISCA has been organizing greeting cards making to the CFP schools to be sent to the CFP supporters in Japan. The greeting cards designed by the students are usually hand painted or presented in collage or mosaic art made from indigenous and recyclable materials available in their area.
The process of making greeting cards encourages the students to encourage and motivate the students to be artistic and express themselves through art. The activity also promotes the development of the interpersonal and cognitive skills of the students as they interact with the other students their age while participating in the event.
Among the CFP students of Haguimitan Elementary School who excels and represents the school in the greeting card making is the Grade six student Greg P. Pimentel. He said that he appreciates much better the environment after attending the Art Workshop organized by OISCA under the Children Forest Program. He said that when working with his artworks, he often draws inspiration from the environment surrounding him especially the growing trees planted within the school premises.
Greg is one of the CFP students who are expected to graduate from school this March. Equipped with knowledge and hands-on experience in environmental conservation from two years of participating to the CFP activities, Greg is confident and proud to leave the school because he is aware that in his own little way he managed to contribute to the environment and he will be leaving a good legacy among the younger batches.
