Unleash your inner-artist to create a colorful mask just in time for local Mardi Gras festivities at a fun workshop-party to benefit to Operation Feed of San Juan Cosalá.
The unique event is set for Wednesday, February 19, 1 to 4 p.m., at The Victoria Inn, Calle Guadalupe Victoria 73, Ajijic.
The fund-raiser is jointly organized by Operation Feed public relations head Melody Peterson and Ajijic artist Diane Pearl. They will supply participants with a variety of ready-to-decorate cardboard masks, along with paints, gel pens, markers, sequins, glitter and ribbons and other tools to make a magical masterpiece, plus party refreshments.
Operation Feed is a multi-faceted social assistance program that includes weekly distribution of pantry goods to underprivileged families, particularly children, the elderly and the disabled.
Pearl, a designer of a series of abstract art coloring books published by Dover Press, considers coloring to be an outlet for hidden artistic talents, as well as an easy form of meditation for tuning out worldly and personal troubles.
Workshop seating is limited to 40 mask-makers, with admission at 400 pesos, including all materials, wine, soft drinks and snacks. Make reservations at Diane Pearl Colecciones, Ocampo at Colón, Ajijic.
