TUESDAY OF ART,
CHOCOLATE AND WINE
In 2015, at popular request, we launched the Courteous Workshops for Adults: Art, Chocolate and Wine Tuesday. We recruited contemporary Puerto Rican artists Vanessa Rivera and Iván Girona to offer Mosaic and Painting workshops, respectively. The workshops are offered six consecutive Tuesdays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and include wine and hot chocolate and a cheese plate courtesy of Chocobar Cortés, in an environment surrounded by works from our exhibitions, background music and air conditioning.
Community Welfare Sundays were launched on Sunday, January 12, 2020 in response to the trauma caused by the earthquakes during the month of December 2019 and in particular by the earthquake on January 7, 2020.
Educational Guides of the Foundation design workshops for dialogue, reflection and creation of art projects inspired by this process with the aim of providing experiences of peace, growth and learning, and to promote the great scientifically proven value that these interventions with art integration have. . The workshops promote the values of the Cortés Foundation: Identity, Dignity, Self-Management, Social Justice and Culture.
The five values that we integrate into all of our programming are: Culture, Identity, Self-Management, Social Justice and Dignity. In the integration workshops of Caribbean art for academic purposes and for well-being and mental health, we use, for example, the book "Stimuli of life for each day" by Eugenio María de Hostos, and hence the reading and dialogue and reflection that are developed , and the emotions that come to the surface and invite you to recognize and channel deeply, are manifested through creative expression.
