NOTICE TO ALL OUR VALUED PATRONS AND CLIENTS:
We regret to inform you that KIDS AT ART will be suspending operations this summer 2015.
Teacher Rita, founder and director of KIDS AT ART has been invited to represent the Philippines, as guest demonstrator to the International Ceramics Festival (ICF) in Wales, United Kingdom this coming July 2015. The festival is Europe's leading, premier, ceramics event that attracts about 1000 participants (see www.internationalceramicsfestival.org)
Teacher Rita has been asked to re-build and fire LUAL, a sculptural birthing kiln that she built at the grounds of UP College of Fine Arts (UPCFA). It was fired in a performance firing to assert the metaphor, kiln firing is birthing.
LUAL is a Kiln Art, wherein the kiln is a sculpture and the firing a performance art. It is considered a first in Philippine Art History and for her pioneering endeavours in this research and creative work; she was conferred with an Academic Distinction by her colleagues at UPCFA and also garnered for her the UP Centennial Professorial Chair Award 2013 and the UP Artist Award 2013-2016.
We hope to see you all next summer 2016!
