Gateway Gallery offers another creative pursuit this summer under the Artsy Workshop banner, a program that started in 2015. The art workshop gives kids and teens, aged 8 to 16 years old, the chance to learn painting, using bags as material under the mentorship of one of the most passionate artists today, Ginny Guanco. The Paint Me A Bag Workshop happens on May 26, Saturday, from 1 to 5 pm at the Gateway Gallery. It is open to all boys and girls who are inclined to the arts, especially those who have not taken up any formal art lessons. It is an inspiring introductory activity that will thrill the students as the end-product is a mobile art that can be used by the student.
The paint-a-bag workshop is the first of its kind to be offered by Gateway Gallery. In the half day workshop, Artist Ginny Guanco will guide the young ones on the rudiments of basic drawing, shading and of adding highlights on the design using motifs that appeal to the young. She will also guide them on the proper painting techniques on fabric bags and develop their confidence in branching out to other clothing items such as t-shirts, denims, jackets and even sneakers.
