ABOUT ARTINFORMAL WORKSHOPSArtinformal is an artist-run center for art education and exhibitions. It was founded in June 2004 by a team of contemporary Filipino artists as a non-formal education center that offers workshops in the studio arts of painting, sculpture, drawing and pottery. The workshops are structured to provide rudimentary, intermediate and advanced instruction in the techniques and theories of art making, encompassing different genres and materials.
The center believes in the philosophy that art is an activity that is needed for self-actualization and spiritual development, and that it should be open to all to be learned and practiced. Artinformal believes that art is taught best in a non-formal set-up, where lessons are directly related to the realities and needs of the learner, while keeping to the standards of artistic excellence.The idea that art and creativity is a natural psychological need is one of the main beliefs of Artinformal. The workshops are designed by its founding artist-teachers to address developing creativity while teaching the fundamentals of various art forms.
The founding artist-teachers maintain that Artinformal's learning structure is fundamentally grounded in the principles of most fine art programs. The difference lies in its unique approach of teaching by sharing, where the artist-teacher shares the experience of art-making as an active practitioner. Workshops are held in a casual environement unencumbered by academic structures and requirments. The lessons offer practical applications of artistic learning in everyday life.
