Everyone is participating: 33 children from Las Lomas Elementary school, 80 youth from San Pancho Junior High and more than a 100 kids from our local primary school, have joined the art workshops, starting their mornings with lots of energy and inspiration.

Their spectacular creations will be displayed on our festival. Join us in this delightful celebration of life!

Recently we asked some of our staff artists to write up a little about themselves… Lola works in the recycling workshop at entreamigos, and among many other things she creates art with recycled objects and will have a piece in our auction.

We want to share her statement with you…

entreamigos_4I, Maria Dolores Silva Castellanos, was born on September 15th in Tuxpan, Jalisco.

My parents are J. Guadalupe Silva Talamantes and Lucina Castellanos Bonilla, I am alive because of them. I came to the world with many skills, thank god I know a bit of everything, I thank god beacause in this world I am creative.

Here at entreamigos we are recyclers. We know how to re-use and create stuff with what we recycle. But the most important part is that we find a real sense for a world: San Pancho Nayarit.

In entreamigos we have communication, education, a library, computers, language center, recycling, sowing workshop and we work with glass, plastic and carton, what everybody throws away we transform it here, with our craftsmanship. But the most important thing for me is to have my friends.

In entreamigos we find a true meaning in enjoying, creating, appreciating and loving ourselves. Come enjoy life here at entreamigos, creating and recycling.

Don’t miss out on all the fun!
