The Saturday Group was formed more than 40 years ago in the corners of coffee shops in Manila by artists who got together to talk, practice and share their passion for art. Today, the group regularly hold art sessions every Saturday doing on-the-spot still life, portraiture, figure sketching and even landscape painting. As a tradition they hold an annual exhibit showcasing the varied and distinct styles of its members. The group takes pride that 8 of our National Artists in the Visual Arts came from the Saturday Group. The group continues the legacy of these great artists as an active participant in the country's art and cultural scene.
