Now on its seventh year, the UP Vargas Museum will have its annual workshop for Junior Museum Guides on 10-13 and 17-20 May (Tuesday – Friday) from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. This eight-day workshop is open to participants ages 10-14. Students will be introduced to basic museum activities such as guiding museum visitors, cataloging artworks, preparing, and mounting exhibitions. This workshop will also cover art production such as photography and comic strip drawing to be facilitated by the Young Artists’ Studio and the printmaking workshop by the Philippine Association of Printmakers.
This year, in celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of Jose Rizal, students will engage in art production workshops that are geared towards their personal reflections on heroism. The JMG workshop will culminate in an exhibit and graduation on 21 May (Saturday).
Registration fee is PhP 3,500, inclusive of workshop kits, art materials, and snacks. Participants are required to bring a point-and-shoot digital camera for the photography workshop.
Due to limited slots, advance registration is required.
