What if you combine the most iconic thing we have in Argentina with art? You get a mate and paint experience! Here is what we are going to do. - Learn about mate, the tradition and some curiosities. Mate is a hot beverage similar to a tea infusion, rich in caffeine, very typical here in Argentina. You are going to know why we drink it, why it is so important, the symbolism of mate and many more things. - Have mate (maybe) for your first time. You haven't been to Argentina if you don't taste mate at least once! You will learn how to make your own mate infusion. No worries, there will be also coffee and tea. - Taste some of the most traditional Argentinian pastries, like facturas, alfajorcitos de maicena and biscochitos de grasa. - Learn to draw some traditional icons of Argentina, like El puente de la mujer (Woman's bridge), empanadas or the Hornero (argentinian bird). There are more options, but you're also free to draw what you prefer. - Paint your mate cup! This is the final part and the most fun part. We will paint what you've drawn with acrylics and I will guide you in the process. You don't need to know how to paint, everybody can do it! - Take home your mate masterpiece and good memories! After 3 hours of learning, talking, eating and painting, you will leave with your mate, full stomach and a happy face and why not, some new friends!
