Art School in Guatemala

In the Guatemala Art site, we work with 20 students, ages 8-17 in an art school setting. The art school works with kids from low income families and some of the kids are not able to attend additional schooling. In the art school, we teach drawing, painting, and crafts, but more than that we teach children about God.  That is our main mission. Every time we receive short-term team members, we work with different projects related to art that create opportunities to get to know our Guatemalan culture. Our main projects include:

  • Forming relationships with the team members and the art students of Magdalena. The team members will have the opportunity to teach an art/craft class. With this project, our goal is to provide direct contact with the students and to interact with them
  • Preparation of canvases. Team members cut, prepare, nail, and paint canvases for the art school students to work on. This is to help the young kids who are not able to construct them themselves.
  • We visit with various houses during team member’s participation in order for team members to be able to take part in different aspects of our culture.
  • We also paint a mural during a 2-week outreach in a house of a family in Magdalena.
  • People who consider working in the art school are people who should be ready to share with children, learn and participate in Guatemalan culture.

“...God has been showing me through the SI staff and the Dominican people what true ministry is all about. Ministry is about relationships, not just tasks; and even more than that it’s about being open to God using you in whatever way possible.”
