These printmaking workshops are going online starting this weekend


Social events like fairs and exhibits are still banned, so the Association of Pinoyprintmakers (AP) in collaboration with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) will be holding their yearly Art by the Bay events online. Instead of the usual weekend gathering of creatives and art enthusiasts at the Folk Art Theater grounds, they’re transitioning their workshops and hotly anticipated print raffle to their website

From Nov. 7 to 14, Art by the Bay will be running online workshops about printmaking and art. The first day features their official online launch and a digital walkthrough of AP’s studio at 10 a.m. 

They’ll also be hosting several workshops, specifically on monotype printing, block printing on fabric and paper cutting and rubbing to be spearheaded by local artists who specialize in each craft. 

The event’s final day will be dedicated to Art by the Bay’s yearly print raffle and the presentation of their “[email protected] Print Folio.” This special project for the CCP’s 45th anniversary includes a collection of rare and valuable prints by 25 leading artists and works by National Artists Benedicto Cabrera (BenCab) and Arturo Luz. 

While getting together to appreciate art may still be far off into the future, this year’s Art by the Bay should tide us over until then.
