The building of the first art gallery in a public high school started Tuesday when Baguio City National High School officials, alumni of the school, and students of the city’s biggest high school received the initial materials for its construction.

BCNHS Principal Whitney Dawayen received in behalf of the school the donation of the councilor, who initiated a BCNHS-based art festival last February.

“We thank the good councilor for his donation which has been the desire of our school,” said Dawayen during the morning ceremony at the school library.

Yangot’s donation was a pledge he made earlier this year when he started the art workshop at the school, which was attended by students from other high schools. And it came during the celebration of his 56th birthday.

The money used was sourced from the sale of his artworks that were put on display at The Manor at Camp John Hay for exhibit last February 15.

He also got part of it from the sales of similar artworks on display at the Le Fern Hotel.

He said that the construction work would definitely go full blast next week, with Special Program in the Arts teacher Ben Ebanio leading workers in the construction.

The president of the Baguio Educators Art Guild is set to defend his thesis this week.

“From there, we can go full blast,” said Yangot.
