Alpas: Ang Pagsilakbo ng Sining sa Panahon ng Pandemya is the Thesis exhibit of the 2021 graduating batch of Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Communication) program of the UP College of Fine Arts. Alpas is a virtual exhibit showcasing creative projects developed during the school year 2020-2021, as the culminating project of Visual Communication students. It was launched on July 10, 2021, 6pm.
On their final year, the students embark on their research for a visual communication thesis: gathering data, establishing a theoretical framework, applying appropriate research methodologies, analyzing data and developing a creative proposal to recommend as a solution to their thesis problem, and finally, successfully presenting and defending their works against a panel of industry experts. The 2021 batch of students have fulfilled this in the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic, during the remote teaching and learning set-up of the University.
The UPCFA proudly present the works from different clusters of Visual Communication: Illustration, Publication & Graphic Design, Moving Images, Visual Communication Campaigns, and Interactive Media. Let this be a testament to their learnings from the University, and to their aspirations as proactive members of Philippine society.
