Art Exhibitions!

For most of my students and their parents the exciting part of an art workshop is in seeing their plates and productions on public exhibition! It is not easy to mount a students exhibition because of the cost (art institutions prefer to devote their spaces only for artists or on collections that are for sale) and renting a venue with facilities (panels, lights, etc.) can be costly.

That is why most of these student exhibitions were mounted and held only for one-day public viewing!

May 2007, Palms Country Club, Alabang

Works from the Visual Art Workshop I conducted were included in the CreativeKids exhibit at the Palms Country Club. More than 80 plates were exhibited done by 8 students ages 6 to 9 in 6 hands-on sessions: drawing plates, oil pastels on paper, felt and sandpaper, mural painting in acrylic, paper and clay sculpture and collage portrait. On display below: Plates on oil pastels on felt paper, drawing, coloring and interaction works on sandpaper.

April 2005, Jollibee Pacita, Laguna
Yes, that's the local Jollibee burger mascot! Works from the Visual Art Workshop I conducted for the Barangay San Vicente were exhibited at the Jollibee Pacita and closing ceremonies at the Barangay Library, Laguna, May 2005. Works on oil pastel, acrylic, clay sculpture, collage and mural done by 8 students ages 11 to 16 in 5 days! On display below, the interaction mural and back panel shows the rest of the works!

May 2004, Kulay-Diwa Art Galleries, Paranaque.
More than 90 works from 13 students ages 5 to 16 from my different art tutorials conducted for Artkolektib were exhibited at the Kulay-Diwa Art Galleries, Paranaque May 2004.

Except for the CreativeKids exhibit where I collaborated on exhibition layout and design with Bambi Manosa Tanjutco, all the other exhibitions were designed and mounted by Lui S. Bacaltos.
