For far too long locals have grieved for something different to do in their free time. They are bombarded with the glitz and the glamour of uber chic parties and modern theater. However, they are now seemingly making trails to new discoveries or more intimate and self enriching experiences. One young lady who has realized this demand has decided to pair her knowledge, passion and experience in her niche to bring premium creative experiences to locals and persons visiting Trinidad. Sharon Burford, Trinidadian artist and illustrator is championing the local creative arts industry through her professional work at Studio 55 and her recent art initiative, “Arty Party TT.”
Her work at Studio 55 ranges from live drawings at events, “cartoonize yourself” options to personalized requests and custom orders of black and white, colour, water colour, digital and many more choices in art and design. However, it is her Arty Party TT that strikes me boldly! Persons attending this party pay for a package which includes a creative art exercise, light refreshments, camaraderie of the entire group, a sense of belonging, team building skills for you and your family, friends or significant other (if you decide to go as a team). Knowledge is imparted upon the group and they leave the event rather renewed and fulfilled. The opportunity to learn differently and enjoy something differently is present here. Art Parties take place in the evenings. They are usually themed. Art Parties take place once per week and persons must book in advance to secure their seats as groups are small. Persons who are unable to attend can also book an art party for their birthday or some special occasion.
Interestingly, Arty Party TT will celebrate their one year birthday on Friday 8th April with a signature Arty Party from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Gulf View Community Center. Persons who wish to attend must be mindful only 22 spaces are available for this event. The curator intends to do the theme in her version of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss”. There is no age restriction or art experience prerequisite. Tickets are TTD$200.00 and more information is available at their pages below.
