    Urian Arts Center launched in January 2010 its outreach program, "HASAAN", now an on-going partnership with GSK, Inc. (Gugma sa Kabataan,Inc.), an NGO working with street kids in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. This clay sculpture workshop is aimed at giving a space for kids to express their artistry.

     Jojo Sescon is Kuya, Tito, Uncle, Sir and even Lolo to the kids, and he says of this unique and rewarding experience with the group:  "What I'm teaching them is not just the technical, it is on how to be free in expressing themselves as true artists. Each of us use different channels in expressing  our emotions and intellect, so as a mentor I'm there to help tap the inner source of their creativity"./ ejd
