Tamarindo Talk

June 4, 2010

Educarte preschool and primary school has organized its annual fundraiser in quite a unique way. On two consecutive weekends, June 12 to 13 and June 19 to 20, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., works of art by famous painters will be exhibited at children’s height in some of the vacant stores in the TamarindoHeightsGardenPlaza. The entry fee for the museum exhibit is ¢2,500 ($4.70) per person.

At the same time, a painting contest is open to children from all private and public schools in the area. Kids can hand in their entries during the hours of the museum exhibit. The only rule for the contest is the size of the piece, which should be 24 inches by 16 inches. The style is free-form, any technique with any materials. The fee to enter the contest is ¢2,000 ($3.80) per artwork, per child.

A closing party will take place June 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the GardenPlaza. For ¢5,000 ($9.40) per person, there will be food, music, entertainment, a raffle and many surprises, including the results of the painting contest.

Local artists are welcome to show their works during the exhibit hours, with a participation cost of ¢5,000 per artist, per day.

For more information, contact Natasha Pachano at 8858-2902 or natashapachano@me.com.

Another artist, Susan Adams, is slowly but surely recovering from neck surgery, and the doctor has said she should be able to paint again soon. Meanwhile, she is using her downtime to redesign her website at www.theadamsartgallery.com.

Madeline Frost has started swimming classes for kids in Avellanas. For information, call 8702-5179. Space is limited.
