Fernando C. Amorsolo Day organized by Fernando C. Amorsolo Art Foundation Inc.

On-the-spot drawing/painting session entitled “Ipinta and Maynila” at Escolta Street, Binondo, Manila in celebration of the “Fernando C. Amorsolo Day”, the 121st birth anniversary of the maestro on May 30, 2013. 

The whole day event will start at 8:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM at First United Building, Escolta St., Binondo, Manila. A simultaneous drawing/painting workshop will be held in the same vicinity for non-artists. We’ll be inviting participants who are interested to learn the art and we will also need volunteers from the pool of artists to instruct the participants during the activity. 

This event will be the first of several events for the year 2013. By June or July we will exhibit Fernando Amorsolo’s works in portraiture and his memorabilia. We will also be including in this exhibition some selected works from the pool of artists who will be participating in the “Ipinta ang Maynila”. Our organization will then conduct a series of workshops around the country to duplicate the activity in Manila and we hope for the continued support of the artists and the art community in this endeavor.

We’d appreciate informing us beforehand if you plan to participate in this event, in the on-the-spot painting, or in the drawing workshop as instructors.
