Limbag at Likhang Kamay: Creating Children’s Picture Books (Mar25)

UPCFA GAD Art Workshops for Women’s Month

The UP College of Fine Arts Gender and Development Committee (GAD) invites interested
students, faculty, staff, and community members to the following free art workshops led by
UPCFA faculty members, in celebration of Women’s Month.
Creating Children’s Picture Books
(A Walkthrough & Workshop)
with Annie Pacaña
March 25 (Saturday), 1:00 – 5:00 p.m
UP Fine Arts Gallery (Multipurpose Hall)

We invite you to an early afternoon talk that will walk you through the process of making storybooks, from writing and illustrating stories to having them published. This will be followed by a workshop on making wordless picture books, inspired by the artist-author’s making of “Ang Bata sa Buwan”. The talk is free and open to the public. Participants (16 yrs old and above) joining the workshop are requested to bring your own coloring materials (your choice of dry media). You may opt to sign up for workshop slots through this link: CreatingChildrensPictureBooks


The two workshops are part of the project titled “Limbag at Likhang Kamay: Papel ngKababaihang Manlilikha sa Pamumulat” for the UP Diliman Arts and Culture Festival 2023 and National Women’s Month in March.

The project explores how women artists have wielded paper, among the most fragile of materials, towards pamumulat: connecting the personal and the political through the written page, painting, and printmaking, writ large, and highlights the special role and contribution of women as artists and cultural workers. 


It is a pilot project of the UPCFA GAD Committee in cooperation with the UP Fine Arts Gallery and the Concerned Artists of the Philippines (CAP).

The first leg was an artist talk, “Ano’ng Papel Mo? Mga Kwento ng Pagmulat at Pagyabong”, last March 3 and a workshop on Basic Relief Printmaking with Color Techniques with Ambie Abaño last March 10.
