Saturday, Jan. 15 we have two events:

Saturday Salon: Chola Cuencana.
Berenice Cárdenas will join us again for another interesting and informative Saturday Salon about the local culture in Cuenca and the Azuay province. In this session you will learn about a popular local figure known as the Chola Cuencana and her partner El Cholo. Every day we see these traditional people walking along the streets of Cuenca, at the markets, and in the country side. However, they are more than a social class or folkloric figure that many locals and foreigners mistakenly call “indigenous people.” There is a whole history of racial and cultural exchanges between Europe and the New World during the colonial era that has affected their traditional clothing on through to today.
10:30 AM. $10

Art in the Garden with Alberto!
Join us for an afternoon of creative fun! Have you been working on a piece but something’s just not right? Do you want to make art but aren’t sure where to begin? Are you looking for a creative setting to meet new people and learn something new? Bring your art supplies (any medium) and come create with Alberto in the garden! Don’t have art supplies? Don’t worry! Just let us know and we’ll make sure you have everything you need. Alberto will be available to give advice, feedback and encouragement. He’ll also be painting himself, so you can watch a master at work. We will have light snacks and the bar will be open. The first glass of wine is on us!
2 – 5 PM. $20

As always, we have our CCC Spanish classes as well. We offer group, pairs and individual classes. Pay for 2 months of classes and you’ll receive a 10% discount!

All of our classes are held on our outdoor patio in the garden. We have plenty of fresh air and space so nobody feels cramped. We are keeping the numbers low as well so each class has very few spaces available.
