UST National On-the-Spot Painting Contest

The University of Santo Tomas held its Annual Inter-School On-the-Spot Painting Competition last February 25 at the Benavides Garden fronting the UST Main Building. This year’s theme is “Mag-ina: Larawan ng Yaman ng Kultura at Kalikasan” (Mother and Child: Portrait of Natural and Cultural Heritage).

Organizer of the event Fr. Isidro Abano, OP, director of the UST Museum noted that this year’s contest seeks to dramatize the important role of the Filipino mother and her children in today’s changing society. He specifically noted that the theme encourages among the youth a return to the values that the concepts of Mother and Nature instill in us.

This year’s judges were architect-interior designer Jonathan Matti, gallery owner and art leader Silvana Diaz, and actress Candy Pangilinan.

Among the universities and colleges participated were Adventist University of the Philippines, Bulacan State University, College of the Holy Spirit, Far Eastern University, Philippine Women’s University, Technological University of the Philippines, and the University of the Philippines.
