Please read entire announcement article. “Painting for the first time,” was one of my first articles on my personal “blog,” after I started to attend a group of enthusiastic, talented and fun painters in Cuenca, Ecuador called “Vino & Van Gogh,” created by Amelia Earl. We use to paint every two weeks at San Sebastian Café and became one of my favorites things to do after retiring here in Cuenca.
I have painted before, but not to the point to understand that exercising our creativity and talent can give us an outlet from our daily routines, helping us express emotions and boost our happiness levels. Keeping this information in my head and being a lover for everything related to the arts, I knew there was something extra I could do to promote Cuenca tourism through art and painting opportunities. Since then, there was an idea in my mind but always overthinking if I wanted to pursue my dream to make it a reality.
After a year looking for support and commitment to my project, I’m very pleased and happy to announce the preliminary launching of “Paintourart, painting colors of creativity,” monthly tours, a joint venture with Best Experience Ecuador, Travel Agency, local professionals, experts in the travel industry. “When painting tours idea was presented to us by our friend Victor Rexach, we immediately embraced the initiative and make it part of our own tours as a fun and unique alternative for our clients,” said Pedro Alvarez, business partner at Best Experience Ecuador.
We are now in final touches for our first year of the new venture, but will like to give a sneak preview of what is coming ahead. Our first official “Paintourart” event will take place on Saturday, April 17, 2021, an all-day tour from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. We will be visiting two wonderful countryside places, “Trébol Roses Plantation farm,” and El Cortijo Cattle Hacienda, 45 minutes north of Cuenca, by Azogues and Biblian area. It’s a 4th generation family business that employees around 120 persons, specially young indigenous ladies. The painting theme will be roses, the perfect place for inspiration and creativity for our painters.
All of our tours will count with the participation of well-known local painting artist Cristian León “Cleón,” he will be providing tips, orientation and recommendations to our participantes during the most important part of our tour, the painting experience. At the end of the day, all of our painters will leave with their own creation in a 19″ x 15″ canvas that will keep as a memory of their experience in Cuenca, Ecuador.
You don’t have to be a Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh or Salvador Dalí to express your own creativity, everyone is welcome, beginners, amateurs, and experienced painters, we will have everything set-up for you.
This is just the beginning of what we have in place for all our participants. Details of what will be included in the tour, price, schedule of all future tours, reservations and payment method, will be announced in our official launching through our marketing and promotional efforts, coming soon.
