BLOG Miguel workshop BronxOur Rainforest ArtLink program is launching! Miguel Barreto has been conducting introductory workshops in schools in our area.  This photograph is featuring Miguel in a school in the Bronx.  He is preparing this class for their journey into exploring the culture in the rain-forest region of Guatemala. Thisinnovative program asks the question, how does the environment affect one’s culture? Partner classes exchange art on an environmental theme and then have the opportunity to question their partners in a live video conference. Given the unique location of the international partner classes the dialogue focuses on the impact of environment on culture.This proves to be both an exciting adventure and a profound experience for all the students.
