Visual Arts Project

           In the Foundation's Annual General Meeting on March 20, 1976 at Dusitdalai, Suanchitralada, H.R.H Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhon suggested that “As the Foundation has managed the dramatic and musical arts Project so well that there are many young artists who can do a great performance, the next project should be visual arts. For one reason, the reconstruction of Wat Amphawan will begin soon, which needs a lot of knowledge and skillfulness in Thai architecture, painting and sculpture”

          The Fine Arts Department by the College of Artworks has then initiated special training course on visual arts for interested persons since 1997. The project comprises of three steps of learning with practice. The trainees up to year 2000 amounted to 234, nine of which were selected to be assistant trainers. Later in 2001, by virtue of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhon's opinion, the College of Artworks has adjusted the training course to admit young people at the age of 11-14 years old for Thai artworks training every year since then. Up to now (2005) there are 378 trainees in total.
