Art is an op­por­tu­nity for hands-on cre­ation, mo­tor skills, and eye-hand co­or­di­na­tion skills are also de­vel­oped through art ac­tiv­i­ties. Two of UN's 17 Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goals (SDGs) are: (1) End poverty in all forms ev­ery­where and (2) en­sure in­clu­sive and eq­ui­table qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and pro­mote life­long learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for all. With the build­ing prin­ci­ple of "leav­ing no one be­hind," the new Agenda em­pha­sizes a holis­tic ap­proach to achieve sus­tain­able devel­op­ment for all.

For the past three years, li­brar­i­ans from the So­cial Sciences Sec­tion and the Filip­ini­ana Books Sec­tion of The Uni­ver­sity Li­brary, Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines Dil­i­man and Layunin ng Ma­paya­pang Kaisi­pan (LMK) Move­ment, Inc. have been con­duct­ing sev­eral art work­shops for chil­dren, which in­clude color art, twisted bal­loon work­shop, can­vass paint­ing, and origami. Pho­to­graphs, videos, and other doc­u­men­ta­tions dur­ing the con­duct of the out­reach pro­gram are an­a­lyzed. SWOT anal­y­sis is con­ducted also. Fu­ture plans and pro­grams with re­gard to art work­shops are sought. Prob­lems en­coun­tered in the man­age­ment and con­duct of the out­reach pro­gram are dis­cussed. Fi­nally, best prac­tices on con­duct­ing art work­shops as out­reach pro­gram/ad­vo­ca­cies are rec­om­mended in the point of view of the li­brar­i­ans for the other li­braries/li­brar­i­ans to fol­low or use as a guide in the near fu­ture for ca­pac­ity build­ing and global change. Key­words: li­brar­i­ans; ad­vo­cacy; ca­pac­ity build­ing; global change
