Spanish club hosts paint night

by Yuri Furuuchi

Spanish Club hosted two Paint Night sessions on Friday, November 3rd in Spagnuole Hall at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The club hosted this event in order to honor the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd.

Margaret Bell, the treasurer of the club said, “The purpose of the event was to bring about community involvement and awareness to a Spanish holiday and culture.”

Paint Night was a successful event, drawing a crowd of 50 people showed up in each session. The event “gave at least 100 people something to do during a really quiet weekend, and it was so fun to be creative in a way I don’t often get a chance to.” said Rachel Sayward, the vice president of Spanish Club.

Sayward also mentioned that the event was a good opportunity not only for the participants but also for the club by having many people in attendance and that they were able to show what they could do as a club.

After the event finished, the Spanish Club executive board members discussed about potentially doing a Paint Night again, but they are also hoping to have someone come in teach a Spanish or Latin dance.
