On Motzei Shabbos, 28th November, the PTA arranged a Zoom Paint Night with Marian Myers. Seventy-seven participants from ages 8-80 enjoyed a relaxed, social evening in the warmth of their own homes.
Marian herself has two daughters at Hasmonean High School for Girls, which made her perfectly placed to run the event. Her services were kindly volunteered in order to maximise the revenue for the PTA and she was an absolute pleasure to work with.
Marian designed a picture of Shabbat candles, which was inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting.
Everyone was provided with a canvas, which held the outline of the picture, a pack of paints, 2 paintbrushes, and a paper plate as a palette.
Marian is a sought after step-by-step acrylic artist and her company is called JUST PAINT. She has facilitated numerous paint parties, as well as working with GIFT, many shuls, Aish, NHS hospitals, Mercers, and Barclays.
One participant said: “This has definitely been my most enjoyable, relaxing, yet productive Motzei Shabbat in the last 9 months!” All participants had a lovely evening!
This was the third event that Hasmonean High PTA has held this term.
