After the historical PEOPLE POWER REVOLUTION in 1986, the first ever art organization at the University of the East was established. “BUKLOD” a tagalog word which means “united” was used to represent the oneness of ideas and creativity of all the art visionaries in the college of fine arts; “SINING”or art, a product of human emotions and expressions. The two words combined to create a powerful name that holds the vision of different artists in all walks of life.
Founded on July 15, 1964, the UE College of Fine Arts Architecture and Design(CFAD) was originally established at the UE Ramon Magsaysay Research Center for Sciences, Humanities and Culture located on Aurora Boulevard, Quezon City. The Cultural School embraced three disciplines in its Conservatory – Music, School of Fine Arts and the Ballet School. It was formally opened on August 3, 1964, and was later renamed the School of Music and Arts. In a very short period of time, the School made a name especially in the Fine Arts, when the students garnered awards in various art competitions. It eventually evolved into quality institute of learning, contributing new names to Philippine art.
In May 1981, in the course of new developments in the University, the school of Music and the Ballet School were phased out, and the School of Fine Arts had to transfer to UE Caloocan Campus. Twelve years later, the School was elevated to College status.
Today, the UE College of Fine Arts continues to make its mark as among the premier art institutions in the country, offering students opportunities to develop into professional visual artists. With its focus on both comprehensive and fundamental art training and digital art technology, the students are kept abreast of the aesthetic and creative demands of the times.
