This summer, Gateway Gallery will be offering two courses: Drawing and Painting, and Craft Workshop under the supervision of professional artists and crafts experts. The workshops are open to kids aged seven, up to young adults aged 19 years old, and will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Gateway Gallery.
The Drawing and Painting Workshop is a beginners’ class where students will be taught the basic principles of drawing. They will also be mentored on the proper use of oil pastels and watercolor, and the techniques needed to achieve three-dimensional rendering of forms. Participants will also receive useful tips from the master artists who will be teaching them.
The teachers are Grandier Bella (drawing, oil pastel) and Julius Legaspi (watercolor medium), exhibiting artists who are also experienced teachers.
The Craft Workshop will be facilitated by Karaw Craft Ventures, a crafts house in Bicol that promotes sustainability and community livelihood. The people of Karaw will teach the students on the discipline of creating three-dimensional works such as papercut, macramé dreamatcher, plush toys, string art, and wood chip hook racks.
Workshop fee is priced at PhP6,000 and is inclusive of most of the materials. All the materials for the Craft Workshop are included in the workshop fee.
