Last week, our ARTMUSC class together with FILIONE class had a fieldtrip in various places of Laguna such as Paete, Pakil and Lumban. I’ll divide this post into 3 parts: Lumban, Paete and Pakil. So here it goes:
Note: I’m sorry for failure of some shots because travel photography is not really my thing but I’m trying my best to improve.
Lumban was the first place we went to. We visited a church there named “St. Sebastian the Martyr Parish Church.” I was not able to listen carefully to the tour guide because I was panicking at that time. My kit lens had a problem but after around 20-30 minutes, my kit lens was already fine. Since my camera experienced a problem, I was not able to take many photos in the church but here are some of the photos:
The next place we went to is Paete: The Wood Carving Capital of the Philippines. We visited St. James the Apostle Church . The church looks more traditional than the “St. Sebastian the Martyr Parish Church” in Lumban. Here are the photos:
Here are some of his creations from his studio:
Paete is not only known for wood carving but also in carving different materials such as ice, fruits and vegetables.
Here are the final products of the ice sculptors:
The last place we went to is Pakil. We were able to discover the use of the “cayetana” wood for these artworks:
We also learned the process of doing these bags out of plastic straws:
The last part of our fieldtrip was the Water Tubing and I’m sorry to tell you guys but I was not able to take photos during that time because I left my camera in my bag becauseI don’t want my camera to get wet.
It was a fun-filled learning experience. I wish to go back there someday. I hope you like it. Take Care.
