Due to the pandemic, we are now keeping Social Distance and working remotely with our children. It’s been hard but we are doing our very best efforts so most of them can reach all of our classes on line or via WhatsApp.

Here in our country the internet isn’t working fluently because of the electricity problems we are facing. It is a huge challenge for our teachers to record and send their classes and it is also a huge challenge for our students to watch them. Even though we are committed to make it work and so far we are succeeding.

Our teachers and our coordinators are doing an excellent work and the students and their family have responded heroically. We are working on a blog where we can hang all of our classes so they can reach them anytime.

In this moment when we are facing very difficult times and great challenges; however with determination and team work we are capable and even more compromised to continue our work and keep this wonderful educational and artistic environment for personal growth through arts.

Thank you for your kindness and constant support in helping us keep arts and hopes for our children.

Help us spread the word.

Thanks to your generosity, the Laboratorio de Artes Integradas continues to grow. We increased to 172 students, 93 girls and 83 boys.We also have more artistic disciplines, 21 disciplines, divided into 3 large areas: Fine arts, such as drawing, painting, arts & crafts and ceramics; Performing arts, such as theater and dance; and Music, such as percussion, cuatro, keyboard and singing. Among the new activities: Storytelling, Sewing, Cinema, Yoga, Improvised Theater and Creative Writing.

We want to highlight the Gallery of El Sabor, an exhibit of the art works of our students, in the steps of El Rincon del Sabor, in the slum José Félix Ribas in Petare, organized by the community leader Carlos Valbuena. For us is a big accomplishment and it was very admired and meant a lot to the community. We are very proud that our students took what they learned to their communities, this corroborates that the work of El Laboratorio generates an impact on the environment were our kids live and also for their family.

We are facing great challenges; however, with determination and team work we are capable and even more compromised to continue our work and keep this educational and artistic environment for personal growth through arts.

Once again thank you for your support and help us spread the word.

We have other important news such as the creation of new alliances that has allowed us to expand our range of disciplines, now in addition to fulfilling our traditional music, theater, and art pensum, on wednesdays and fridays 15 different classes are offered that include yoga, storytelling, improvisation, artistic geography, crafts, and even observation workshops among others.

School year 2018-2019 has successfully ended!


The last weeks of the program were specially active for our students. First an alliance with @leatherheart made possible a great day of learning about circular economy and the importance of creative thinking and using our imagination to give back life to materials instead of generating more waste. At the end of the day, children had learned how to build a tiny propulsion car with old bottle caps and plastic cups, how to make recycled paper, enjoyed storytellers that shared how toys can be made with old fabrics, reused and paint paper tubes to build a huge sculpture, and the best part: they each went home with unique gifts made specially for them!

Last week we celebrated Quiero MostrARTE, a showcase were all the work and effort from the year is presented to all their friends and also their families. We all enjoyed an art exhibition with all their works in drawing, painting and ceramic, a music presentation featuring cuatro, percussion and choir, accompanied by dancing, and a theater play. 

We are recharging batteries to resume after the holidays and receive the children with all the energy and dedication they deserve.

¡El año escolar 2018-2019 ha culmidado con éxito!


Las últimas semanas del programa fueron especialmente activas para nuestros estudiantes. Primero, una alianza con @leatherheart hizo posible un gran día de aprendizaje sobre la economía circular y la importancia del pensamiento creativo y el uso de nuestra imaginación para devolver la vida a los materiales en lugar de generar más desperdicio. Al final del día, los niños habían aprendido cómo construir un pequeño carrito de propulsión con tapas de botellas viejas y vasos de plástico, cómo hacer papel reciclado, disfrutaron de cuentacuentos que compartieron cómo se nacen juguetes a partir de textiles reutilizados, y pintar tubos de papel para construir una escultura enorme, y la mejor parte: ¡cada uno se fue a casa con regalos únicos hechos especialmente para ellos!

La última pasada celebramos Quiero MostrARTE, una gran día en el cual se presenta todo el trabajo y el esfuerzo del año a todos sus amigos y también a sus familias. Todos disfrutamos de una exposición de arte con todas sus obras en dibujo, pintura y cerámica, una presentación musical con cuatro, percusión y coro, acompañada de baile y una obra de teatro. 

Estamos recargando las pilas para retomar después de las vacaciones y recibir a los niños con toda la energía y dedicación que se merecen.

Energy cuts, water shortages and the current political climate in our country made it hard this last couple of months and most of our kids had trouble attending classes for a couple of weeks. However, we we're not demotivated, and it only made us work harder to accomplish our goals and our mission! We're even working on a special workshop that will be held June 28th with our friends from Leather Heart, to teach the children about circular economy and the importance of creative thinking to reduce waste. 

For everyone in our organization it is important to communicate to all our donors and dear collaborators, that work never ceases, we do not stop, it is now in the midst of difficult times when our effort is most important for this group of children, whom we congratulate every day for their dedication in such adverse conditions.

Los recortes de energía, la escasez de agua y el clima político actual en nuestro país dificultaron este último par de meses y la mayoría de nuestros niños tuvieron problemas para asistir a clases durante un par de semanas. Sin embargo, no estamos desmotivados, ¡y solo nos obligó a trabajar más duro para lograr nuestros objetivos y nuestra misión! Incluso estamos preparando un taller especial que se llevará a cabo el 28 de junio con nuestros amigos de Leather Heart, para enseñarles a los niños sobre la economía circular y la importancia que tiene el pensamiento creativo para reducir el desperdicio.

Para todos en nuestra organización es importante comunicar a todos nuestros donantes y queridos colaboradores, que el trabajo nunca cesa, no nos detenemos, es ahora en medio de tiempos difíciles cuando más vale nuestro esfuerzo por este grupo de niños, a quienes felicitamos cada día por su dedicación en condiciones tan adversas.
