And we’re off.
This past weekend I attended the first Canvas and Wine of the season. This newly offered evening of, you got it, painting and all-you-can-drink wine was held at the Spanish Experience on Calle Republica de Chile with Karen and Licia of Pitayo, an art and therapy workshop. A group of us met there at 7:30, had our choice of red or white and painted masterpieces loosly based on the style of Kandinsky.
I don’t know about the rest of them, but mine definitely looked better after a couple glasses, in the dark. Ultimately it was so much fun and not at all about the finished product. There are a number of Canvas and Wine events lined up – you can get more information on their facebook at facebook.com/pitayoarteypsicologia
Embracing your creativity, even if it’s not the most polished is a great way to record your experiences which is why the Tribune now has over 20 contributors. A recent call for writers brought another half-a-dozen Hemmingway’s to our roster. I know I’m excited to see what tales are spun on the pages of the Tribune this season.
In no particular order here are many of our contributors:
