Place des Arts Presents Second Palette Event

Place Des Arts Eat Paint Create

Coquitlam’s Place des Arts presented its first Palette . . . eat, paint, create! held last March. The evening was so successful that the centre has programmed two more of these lively events for the 2014/15 season. This first one is coming up this weekend on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 7:30–10:30pm at Place des Arts.

Guests will unleash their inner artist as they paint a canvas and enjoy tapas and perhaps a glass of wine in a relaxed and social environment. This all-ages event will especially appeal to adults, as it offers a chance to gather with friends and do something a little out of the ordinary. Place des Arts believes everyone has an artist inside just itching to get out, and Palette offers a non-threatening atmosphere in which people can explore, express, create and have fun.

We did mention eating – so what’s on the menu? The tapas will include a charcuterie plate, warmed olives, artisan breads and crackers, a selection of fine cheeses, a fruit plate and, for a little sweetness, assorted petit fours. Anyone with dietary restrictions is encouraged to let Place des Arts know by calling Events Coordinator Michael Fera at 604.664.1636 ext. 34.

Tickets are $25/person or two for $40. The ticket price includes tip, taxes, tapas, canvas and supplies to paint one canvas. A cash wine bar will offer red and white wine and beer. If you’re ready to unleash your inner artist this weekend get your tickets online online at brown paper tickets, by phone at 604.664.1636 or in person at Place des Arts, 1120 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam.

    I think overall your newsletter is fun and informative however it seems to me that I always get the dates of events happening around town a week after performance/showing etc. How could we remedy this so the notices all concur? Many a time I’ve thought “that sounds like fun” and then realized it was the week before.

    • Because our weekly newsletter goes out on Wednesdays, occasionally there are events that are happening during the week that we cover on Thursday or Friday and don’t make it into the newsletter until after they happen. If you want to be sure you always have notice in advance, I’d suggest changing your subscription to the daily newsletter (so you’ll always get it as soon as it’s published) or dropping by our site here on Fridays and checking the event calendar.
