Pirica Art Centre aims to create a suitable environment and support for Myanmar artistic talent to develop their skills and visions. For this purpose, we plan and implement programs to support and nuture Myanmar art students, amatures and up-and-coming painters. We also make humble contribution for Myanmar needy children and communities from our donation paintings and a part of sales.  


 “World Art History for Myanmar Artists” by Crowdfunding

Pirica Art Centre supported to publish the first art history textbook in Myanmar language drafted by the artist/ art teacher Kyaw Thu Rain. Since 1968, when the book about world and local artist biography called “A Dictionary of Art and Artists (Burmese)" was published, there has been no particular book about art history in Myanmar language. For this project from 19 November to 18 December 2014, total fund SGD 5120 was raised from a number of supporters from Myanmar, Singapore, Japan, USA and France through one of the most established crowdfunding platform, Pozible. 1000 copy of “History of Art” was published in February 2015. The book is offered as a free learning material for the art students and teachers in two State High School of Fine Art and two National University of Art and Culture in Yangon and Mandalay.
