Lecture-Demo on Printmaking (14 Feb 2009)

I had my first experience of Printmaking way back in the summer of 1999 when I attended the Summer Art Camp organized by Ayala Museum. We had 3 days of doing art in Tam-Awan Village (Baguio's art center) in the heart of Baguio City.

On February 14, 2009 (Sat.), after 10 long years, I got to experience printmaking again, as an art form and how fine prints are made. It was held at PAP workshop studio located behind the Folk Arts Theatre in CCP Complex, Pasay City. The lecture included a powerpoint presentation by Ambie Abaño, video showing and actual demonstration by Benjie Cabrera. Ambie also did some demo with the other participants, like myself.

The Philippine Association of Printmakers (PAP), in its four decades of existence, continues to bring art to the people with its multi-original prints, exhibiting and holding workshops to promote the art form and subsequently to democratize art. It was founded in 1968 through the pioneering efforts of Manuel Rodriguez, Sr., along with Adiel Arevalo and other printmakers he mentored. It has since become the prime mover of graphic arts in the country. For almost forty years, the association has devoted itself to the promotion of printmaking and bringing art to the people.
