Dear SASL Members,

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. During this past year we have had to give up many things, including abstaining from many of the pleasures, activities, and treasured times most dear to us. We now look forward to new beginnings and our hope is that we all start to feel some sense of normalcy very soon.
SASL’s events will be planned and announced according to the Swiss Government Covid restrictions, please stay tuned. Wishing you all the very best and hopeful to see you very soon!

Art Event - Today you are the ARTIST
Restaurant Prizzi Luzern
In one hand a glass of wine, in the other a paint brush.
Something wonderful occurs when a group of people get together and fell free to have fun with paint. Add a glass of wine or beer and it is positively festive. We often, as adults, forget that it is important to be creative, that it is proven to be beneficial to our mind and our spirit. No experience necessary and you can keep your "masterpiece" to impress your family and friends!
Come experience the special feeling of being an artist, let your emotions flow and witness your creativity come to life. Martin Sullivan, our very own SASL ARTIST and instructor will guide the group through each step of the painting.
All supplies are provided and included in the price (canvas, easel, paint, brushes, aprons). Be aware, paint may end up on your cloths, so dress appropriately.
Come early to start with a Apéro or even enjoy a delicious dinner. The Prizzi restaurant opens at 5, kitchen at 5:30 pm - order your Pizza ARTE or Pasta ARTE incl. salad for Fr. 28.00.
