This month you can express your creativity and connect with the local community at the same time. Cosecha Shop & Creative Center is offering some great workshops where you can create your very own piece of art to take home with you as a souvenir or –if you are a local- use as a gift to yourself or a loved one.

Aruba Cosecha Shop and Creative Center is located at B v/d Veen Zeppenfeldt straat #20 in San Nicolas, this is where the workshops take place.

The day after, Saturday October 26st the local artist Natalia Koolman will take you on a three hour enjoyment of creating a mandala on a flower pot.
