EDUCATING THE YOUTH ON DONG HO PAINTING: A SUSTAINABLE PRESERVATION STRATEGY

Tuyen Pham Van

Abstract


Dong Ho painting is a cultural heritage to be preserved and promoted. Being a line of woodcut prints on a special type of paper, Dong Ho painting can be considered a tangible heritage. There have been multiple preservation projects for Dong Ho art as tangible heritage. However, it is also qualified as intangible cultural heritage, according to UNESCO’s criteria for an intangible and Vietnam’s law on cultural heritage. We focus on the intangible aspects of the art and consider them highly relevant for art education. We propose a sustainable strategy of preserving this traditional art form in the context of a rapidly changing society. To do so, we have analyzed the risks of Dong Ho painting becoming a lost art, defining the foundation for our suggested solution. In short, we put forth a plan to establish a standardised educational model that requires collaboration among multiple entities.
