Since it opened last November 2019, this hip cocktail bar/art space has been developing its programs tirelessly, continuously producing exhibitions, performances, artist talks, and other arts-related events to further its goal: to cultivate the constantly-growing creative scene in Poblacion. Part of this initiative is the launching of the “Kondweekend” program last December 2019 where various collaborators are invited to hold bazaars, workshops, and other activities within the space during the weekends.
In line with this, we would like to invite you to join the latest addition to our weekend program: Learn how to paint using watercolor with Steph Alvarez! Apply basic techniques such as proper brush work, pressure control, color mixing and color selection. At the end of the workshop, students will learn how to produce simple still-life watercolor paintings within a limited timeframe. Recommended for beginners. Sign up link down below.
