El martes 29 de Noviembre de 2016, Art of Conservation (AoC) estará participando en #UnDíaParaDar, el día global dedicado a la donación. Nosotros quisiéramos que se nos unieran en esta occasion a lo que en AoC llamamos #GivingToMayanChildrenDay.
Algunos de nuestros graduados nos han dado su opinion sobre su experiencia con AoC:
On Tuesday, 29 November 2016, Art of Conservation (AoC) is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving, and we would like you to join this special call to action that AoC is calling #GivingToMayanChildrenDay.
A few of our former students have this to share about their Art of Conservation experience.

Happy Holidays! !Felices fiestas!
Our students and their families in the small village of Chunyaxché in México’s Yucatán Peninsula want more jaguars in their jungle. (See video below!)

Art smocks have been something we've wanted to use during our art exercises for a long time. As you know, it is fun to let go, play with different materials, and not worry about getting dirty. We are also conscious that parents of our students need to provide their children with school uniforms so the last thing we want is for a child to return home after a spectacular AoC session and be in trouble for having paint, glue, and sparkles splattered all over them.
Thanks to Patricia 'Pato' Pagnucco and Paula Martínez Vangils for making the art smock wish become a reality!

Geoffroy's Spider Monkey (Ateles geoffroyi) is an endangered New World monkey that lives in México. Drs. Colleen Schaffner, Filippo Aureli, and researcher Denise Spaan know a lot about this agile primate and were kind enough to take the time to come to our Chunyaxché session and speak with the children.
"What is the name of this primate?" asks Filippo and Colleen.Read more
Children are always interested in what Dr. Juan, Tulum's extremely skilled veterinarian, has to say about taking care of our pets. He brings along all of his equipment plus his neighbors dog named Popi.

What a night we had... rain and all! Thank you Tulum! I just sent out an e-news with the full story and many additional photos of our recent 2nd Annual Fund Raiser Gala in Tulum. Please sign up for our e-news here! Despite the rain, the evening was full of joy, enthusiasm, and much needed fundraising thanks to the generosity of the community.
One of Art of Conservation's core values is CREATIVITY. We hope to inspire creative thinking, practice, and play. To give the children we work with a nice launching-off point to express themselves the team and I present the kids with basic principles and elements of art, for instance recently we studied color.
Children place color cards in order of lightness to darkness to better understand value.Read more
