Tamarindo Community: The Art
Scene in Tamarindo
We know Tamarindo is known for its beach and surfing, but the art world
is becoming more and more present within the community as well. You
do not have to walk very far down the main road to see the work of local
artisans and painters.
But even beyond the local artisans who sell their great work throughout
the streets of city, those visiting and living in Tamarindo have a few great
resources to appreciate and learn about art.
Tamarindo is home to a lovely and large gallery that displays fine art
from artists around the country. With 400 square meters of space, both
locals and tourists can enjoy quality art without leaving this beach town.
La Galera is also offering lectures and classes for both adults and
children to encourage the arts within the community.
Art Retreat Tamarindo
Art Retreat Tamarindo offers art classes, workshops, and open studio
times for tourists and locals. Headed up by Hollie Heller, a mixed media
artist, the Art Retreat Tamarindo studio has a lovely view of the beach,
a great place for all artistic inspiration.
Local artist Maria Soledad opens up her studio space in Langosta called
Yerba Buena for locals and tourists to enjoy and purchase her work. The
artwork ranges from oil on canvas to art on surfboards, a perfect creative
combination of artistry and the joy of the Costa Rican beach town.
