It is indeed that angono is the "art capital of rizal" . Very blessed town because almost all of those who resides here are naturally born artists. I am a friend of the blanco's and i can say that they are lucky enough because almost all of the family members knows how to paint. I may sound cliche but "it really runs in the family". Try to visit the place, the museum is open for public and entrance fee is so cheap.
