Sometimes just a simple painting on an old surfboard can brighten someone’s outlook on life. Art can change lives and broaden perspectives. And sometimes a kid will paint for the first time, and realize that they love it. It can be a life-changing event.
That’s why when I travel I like to spend a few days with the local groms, showing them how to paint their own surfboards and skateboards. (The last time was in Puerto Escondido). This year, I’m going to Sayulita, Mexico, a little surfing town. Maria and I will give a free painting workshop for kids (and adults). All supplies are being donated by some of the great companies we work with (named below).
WHEN: Friday, June 17, 2016 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
WHERE: ULA, Marlin 8, Sayulita, Mexico
WHAT: Posca Paint Pen workshop – learn how to paint your stuff with paint pens. I’ll also have plenty of Fredrix Canvas boards to paint on.
THANKS TO: My friends at Posca for giving us all the paint pens we will need for this event. Also, Fredrix Canvas generously donated a large supply of canvas boards. And, my favorite shoe company, KEEN, donated plenty of goodies to give out as well.
Blog post and pictures will follow when we return. It will be fun.
