Color Your Life’s mission is to visit communities, whether indigenous or remote, all over the country to promote the Arts to the children, to awaken their artistic potential, to inspire them to dream, to let them imagine the unimaginable, and most especially, to just have fun during the activities.
The project is committed to provide start-up art kits for the participants which can possibly be helpful to continue their interest towards the Arts. Moreover, the kits are tokens of appreciation to the community in exchange of Crayons’ travel and visit in remote and rural areas.
The Color Your Life Project envisions a community where every Filipino child has the right to learn and be culturally enriched by exploring one’s potential through Arts. The Crayons, as visionaries, will extend their helping hand to be able to create a space wherein the children can learn, at the same time, enjoy their youth by engaging in art activities.

We, the Crayons, are overjoyed to facilitate the Color Your Life Project (CYL) in Barangay Napaset, Luna, La Union. This will be our first ever activity to be held on August 12, 2017, Saturday, at 2 PM at Napaset Barangay Hall. As travelers by heart, we chose La Union because it is one of the destinations that features fine beaches in the country, particularly in Nalvo Sur and Darigayos, and considered as a food hub of the North, showcasing local delicacies the province offers. Specifically, Barangay Napaset is also the hometown of Louie who is a member of Crayons. Through this project, she can give back to the community that is very near and dear to heart.
How has everyone been doing? It’s been two months since we last had our Color Your Life Project in Luna, La Union. The group is now planning to conduct its second leg in Pampanga.
Last year, one of the Crayons went on a field work in Sitio Camachile, Brgy. Nabuklod, Floridablanca, Pampanga. During the field work, she met a community of Aetas, one of the indigenous groups in the Philippines. Then, she met the eldest member of the community, Tata Parham, who was then 110 year old. He’s probably 111 now.
To be able to continue our journey in splashing colors to the children, we will be having our third project entitled “Project Ormoc” on November 25, 2017, Saturday, 2 PM, at Ormoc City Hall. As such, this will be our first ever Color Your Life Event in Visayas. The reason behind choosing Ormoc to be a part of our project is because of its local government’s urgency of creating public spaces to transform into artists’ hub. Color Your Life is in line with Ormoc’s movement in promoting the arts and culture, most especially for the benefit of the young generation.
On December 09, 2017, the Color Your Life Team found a way to celebrate Christmas by giving their time to volunteer for the Christmas Party of L.I.F.E. which was held at the Lung Center of the Philippines. In addition, the Crayons also prepared and distributed one hundred (100) start-up art kits for the leukemic patients of L.I.F.E. These kits may help them exercise their creativity, and as such, “creating art heals”. It can be a way for people to express their unspoken or unconscious concerns about their illness and their lives, deal with emotional conflicts, increase self-awareness, cope with cancer, and reduce stress. Color Your Life is looking forward to conduct art workshops for the leukemic children again next year.
Just when we thought we had wrapped the year up nicely with Project L.I.F.E., Color Your Life was invited to team up with an internationally renowned service club – Lions Club International for their Christmas Paraiso Gift-Giving Program on Dec. 23, 2017 at Barangay Paraiso, Roosevelt Ave., Quezon City.
Lions Club International is one of the world’s largest service club organizations. They advocate volunteerism and help their volunteers deliver humanitarian services to their local communities. This is very much similar to the Color Your Life movement in which we, as much as possible, involve the locals in conducting the art workshops to the children.
