Outdoor Art Offered Saturdays in San José
For Saturday morning live painting and a chance to mix with Costa Rican artists, head for the red hoops across from Iglesia La Soledad in downtown San José.
The recently formed Plaza de las Artes group will be drawing, painting and potentially hawking their creations in the plaza from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday through November. The first two mornings averaged 11.5 artists, ages 19 to 55, said Estephanie Jara of the Municipality of San José’s Cultural Section. Others are welcome to join the group, which is seeking more venues to promote its members’ art. Besides socializing, buying paintings or joining the group, art fans can sign up for specialized workshops.
The municipality is sponsoring the events, which include live music. Plaza de las Artes is at Paseo de los Estudiantes and Avenida 4, near the Tica Bus terminal.
