Yamang Sining, Yamang Dagat Paperclay Art Competition

JNBM PaperclayIn line with their 10th anniversary and with the aim to discover new talented artists between the ages 18 to 25 years old, JNBM Paperclay has launched an art competition centering on the use of their product for painting. Using a canvass bigger than the usual size you can find at their 9 branches all over the Metro Manila, this opens up a great opportunity for creative youths to open up their imagination for a lot more possibilities using paperclay as their primary medium to express their thoughts about the theme “Yamang Sining, Yamang Dagat”.

The project is partnered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in the preservation of our marine wildlife. This would mean we will be seeing a lot of images of sea dwellers from big to small that will populate the Resorts World Manila starting May 15 up to June 30. Registration started last May 15 but continues until June 30.

The event is also an opportunity to introduce Paperclay as a universal art material that can be used as medium for paintings and other artwork.

They would also discover and launch a new batch of Paperclay Artists that will create artworks that will be exhibited as World-class Paperclay Artworks globally.
