May 2012 Visual Literacy and Art Criticism Workshop

Responding to the need to address art in an informed and rigorous manner, the Art Studies Department of the University of the Philippines-Diliman organizes a visual literacy and art criticism
workshop from 2nd to 5th May, 2012. The workshop aims to provide
participants with visual literacy skills, pedagogical approaches to
visual literacy, and basic skills in writing about art that is both
critical and eloquent.

The four-day workshop includes lectures by Professor Emerita Alice
Guillermo, art historians and curators Patrick Flores and Eileen
Legaspi Ramirez; and exhibition tours at the Vargas Museum and the
Ateneo Art Gallery. Writing and criticism workshops will be
facilitated by faculty from the Department of Art Studies, University
of the Philippines-Diliman.

Expressions of interest may be coursed thru, with the submission of an
application form and a writing sample of about 500-to 800-word length
by 15 March 2012. The workshop will also accept a limited number
(first-come, first-serve) observers who will be exempted from turning
in a writing sample but who will only be allowed to participate during
the plenary sessions.  Please use “Workshop application” as your email
subject heading.

  1. How much would the workshop cost? And is this workshop tailored for those who professionally write or are connected with the arts industry?
