Be Arty & Taste Tapas
ORANJESTAD – The Academy of Fine Arts and Design Aruba is the first and only Art and Design Academy in the Caribbean. Saturday they open their doors for everybody to see the
exhibition of their 17/18 students between 10 AM and 5 PM. Until recent years, an academy of fine arts and design didn’t exist in the Caribbean. In 2011 however, this has changed by establishing a Preparatory Course in Aruba, in partnership with the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.

The course offers a first professional opportunity to the students to prepare to function independently in either Fine Arts or Design. It also encourages them to have an open attitude towards their environment and to involve in all aspects of their society. In the near future, the Bachelor Course will be established. The building where the academy is located is a fully renovated monumental villa and worth visiting.

Why not make it a full Oranjestad day and combine your visit to the art exhibition with a lunch in a trendy, stylish and Mediterranean feel restaurant (just opposite the academy) Take a pick from a menu with tapas (small bites originally from Spain) and main dishes, all prepared with the freshest products and under the wings of maybe the best-know chef in Aruba and last but not least an impressive wine selection. All against affordable prices, for lunch as well as dinner available. Step out of the tourist zone and come mingle with the hip local crowd at MAROC!
