San Juaneos Combine Art and Produce through Coffee Painting Workshop and Contest

On May 13, the Local Government Unit of San Juan and the San Juan Arts and Culture Council partnered up to carryout the on-the-spot coffee painting contest at the San Juan Municipal Gymnasium.

This endeavor furthers the youth’s knowledge of the province’s and San Juan’s close history with the Kapeng Barako. “Sila ang ating next generation, at kung hindi sila magiging aware sa kasaysayan ng probinsya at San Juan, malamang hindi din sila magiging aware sa (functions) ng Barakong kape na dati’y inumin lang pero ginagamit na din sa at mga spa, at ngayon bilang tinta sa pagpipinta,” San Juan Arts and Culture Council President Atty. Sylvia Marasigan said in an interview with wowbatangas.

Workshop facilitator and renowned San Juan Artist Master Carlos “Caloy” Alferez Castro stressed on the importance of the arts and creativity which promote the expression of individuality and uniqueness. “Itong mga batang ito ay mga millenial, iba tala ang ideas nila sa akin”, the 76 year old artist said. “…Ang tinuturo ko lang ay yung mga method, yung mga sistema para makapagsimula sila at alam kong mas makaka-discover tayo ng mas magagaling pang artists.”

The coffee painting workshop and contest was attended by San Juan students and various individuals. The event is part of the month-long celebration of the feast of San Juan Nepomucene.
