Dr. Cynthia Loza and Ms. Adrienne Aventino of University of Santo Tomas, Manila discusses the Likhang Bayan Project to help re-order the perspective of students by identifying traditional arts as the foundation of Filipino art. It is a qualitative research with artist-teachers and their
students as participant-learners. It is based on the principles of constructivism and made use of in-situ/situated learning.

  • The main purpose of the Likhang Bayan Project is to help re-order the perspective of students by identifying traditional arts as the foundation of Filipino art. It is a qualitative research with artist-teachers and their students as participant-learners. It is based on the principles of constructivism and made use of in-situ/situated learning. Personal Meaning Mapping was employed for student pre-test and post-test procedures. ‘ Traditional Filipino art’ is used interchangeably with: ‘applied art’, ‘utilitarian art’, ‘folk art’, ‘primitive art’ in contrast with ‘fine art’. These are artforms that have been practiced for at least three generations, including art forms from the pre colonial and the colonial periods, actively practiced and passed on to other practitioners. The intention of the UST Likhang Bayan study is to introduce a digital library of traditional Filipino arts (TFA) and associated local terms through a compilation of “TFA tracers”, lectures on TFA and other related activities, which can be a source of information for teachers of art and design and other courses. Dissemination of information will start within the University and eventually make the sharing of the learning resource with other academic institutions possible through digital media.
  • As a means for classifying information, art forms were documented using the TFA tracers--a simple format for recording information about traditional art forms, their makers, and the local terms used for art materials, tools and procedures. Soft copies of the format for the TFA tracers were circulated to artist-teachers and students who completed the forms. The Likhang Bayan group engaged in the collection of materials for uploading, made the digital resources available for access in the appropriate format and encouraged teachers to use the digital resources as supplementary materials for TFA learning.
  • Entries on the TFA tracers consisted of descriptions and photos of art or craft making procedures, as well as information about local craft practitioners. At this stage, word processing softwares, electronic mail and mobile technologies like digital cameras and video cameras were used in order to build a databank.
  • The resulting digital library is intended to facilitate the sharing of learning resources on traditional arts. The information is first made available to the UST Electronic Blackboard (E-board) or UST e-Learning Access Program (e-LeAP) for inter-department sharing of the learning resource.
  • The Likhang Bayan group will be available for access at the “My Community” tab. In this page, features like announcements, Information, Documents, Communication and External Links are available. The TFA learning resources are also meant to be a component of some of the subjects in the College of Fine Arts and Design. It will be made available for students through the “My Courses” tab.

  • The involvement of other academic institutions is made possible through a website (WordPress), social networking (Facebook) and video sharing site (YouTube).
  • WordPress, being a blog tool and publishing platform will carry the TFA tracers, demonstration/lecture photos and videos and information about other related activities.
  • The Social media, Facebook, will cover announcements, link-sharing, discussions, forums, photos and videos.

  • At present, the efforts in making all the information about TFA available within and outside UST also face various challenges. First, the task that takes much work is the transcription of interviews and the editing of photos and videos in order to make a comprehensive presentation for the receivers. In addition to this, downloading, uploading and optimizing files require a capable mainframe, fast internet connection, and tons of time and patience. After dealing with the above-mentioned ordeals--acknowledging references, citing sources and copyright issues would also have to be dealt with. The trend towards increased use of digital media as educational resource may affect school policies on social networks. The following concerns need to be addressed: the e thical considerations on the use of social networks as tools for education, making sure that learners’ needs are met, and facilitating wider access to digital resources.
  • Putting all the tough essentials aside, the group still aims and aspires to help establish the place of traditional Filipino arts as a resource for education and local knowledge as a channel for development with digital media as the means for propagation.
