This workshop will provide creative thinking and conceptual tools that will help students to create ideas and prototypes that later can be translated in different materials, in this process the participants  can shape their artistic identity and develop a line of work based on personal interests and forms.

The experimentation of ideas and materials is a very important element in this workshop, the student will learn to read and develop a new artistic and visual language using questioning technique as the basis.


After obtaining his master’s degree in 2006 at St Lucas University College of Art and Design in Antwerp, Belgium, Manilla continued to work as a freelance artist and as an art educator at different institutions in Europe, Central and South America.
