Here is your opportunity to discover your talent as an artist.  The Zorayan Museum Committee of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church are delighted to hold a Paint Night on August 4, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.   Guests of all ages are invited to attend and paint their own masterpiece.

Guiding them through a step by step process is the noted Director of Creative Lounge, Armineh Havan, an organization she established and which was designed to revitalize and cultivate the art within each of us. 

Guests will also enjoy wine and appetizers, as well as the canvas and all supplies for their painting.

The Zorayan Museum Committee, under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, has organized exhibitions of famous paintings by Armenian artists, as well as lectures and theatrical plays in order to promote and preserve Armenian art, history and culture.  “My congratulations to the Committee,” stated His Eminence, “for conducting this event and affording guests the opportunity to express their own individual artistry.”

Vania Vartzbedian, a member of the Zorayan Museum Committee, stated “We are excited to hold our first Paint Night and, particularly, to be guided by Armineh Havan an artist who has received acclaim not only for her own paintings, but for teaching art in schools.   We anticipate this will be a fun evening for all who participate.”
