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: https://bit.ly 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. For inquiries, contact us at limbagatlikhangkamay@gmail.com. Please stay tuned for updates through the page of the UPCFA GAD Committee.

Benjie Cabangis, Reelin’ in the Years

The UP Fine Arts Gallery Legacy Series is proud to present Professor Emeritus BENJAMIN ISLA CABANGIS’ 31st Solo Exhibit “Benjie Cabangis, Reelin’ in the Years” featuring works from 1976 to 2023 at the Gallery One, Gallery Two and Multipurpose Hall of Parola. It will be launched on March 1, 2023, 4.30PM, and will run until March 31, 4PM.

“There is an opportunity to slow down when I draw, and to immerse myself in the process. My art making is a way to discover, reflect on, and express myself. It’s like writing a journal or keeping a diary, but with lines and marks instead of words.” (Cabangis)

[The UP Fine Arts Gallery Legacy Series is an exhibition series featuring works of retired and former professors of the U.P. Diliman College of Fine Arts. The exhibition ceremonially marks the lasting relationship of the mentor to generations of artists as life-long learners. Benjie Cabangis is the fourth feature– acknowledging his contributions as Professor Emeritus, former Chair of the Department of Studio Arts, and former curator of Corredor Gallery (UP Fine Arts Gallery). Earlier exhibits in the series were for Leonilo Doloricon (Visual Communication Professor and former Dean), Johnny Reynoso (Visual Communication Professor), and Yasmin Almonte (Studio Arts Professor).

KALOOB: Mula at Tungo sa Bayan

Hatid ng UPD Arts & Culture Festival 2023 ang KALOOB: Mula at Tungo sa Bayan.

“Ang tema at adhikain ng UPD Arts and Culture Festival 2023 ay nagnanais magbigay-pugay sa mga tagumpay na natamo ng mga artista-iskolar-manlilikha ng bayan na nagpapamalas ng masusing pag-unawa sa kondisyon ng tao, partikular sa karanasang Pilipino. Sa gitna ng pandemya, mga problemang pangkalikasan, panlipunan, pangkabuhayan, at politikal, kasama na ang pagpigil sa karapatan ng malayang pagpapahayag sa isang demokratikong bansa, ang mga artista-iskolar-manlilikha ay patuloy na lumilikha ng sining na nagmumula at patungo sa bayan.”

Bilang kaloob o ambag ng mga iskolar ng CCTGACH at VACSSP, isang pisikal at online na eksibisyon ng sining biswal ang itatanghal upang maipamalas ang kanilang mga pananaw ukol sa sining, lipunan, at sangkalibutan. 

Kabilang sa artista-iskolar-manlilikha ng bayan mula sa Kolehiyo ng Sining Biswal sina:
