July

We had a Frame making workshop, with Marco Zavala “Zamer”. The emerging artists learned to make different kinds of wood frames, to be able to preserve and give a better presentation to their works.

We also had a mural painting with stencil workshop, directed by Daniel Castillo, an artist from Chiapas. The mural was made for Radio Tzinaca of San Miguel Tzinacapan, Cuetzalan. 

August

In August we issued the First Call for Scholarships. Through them and in part with help from the municipality, we covered transportation costs of young people from different communities in Cuetzalan. We were looking for youth who are talented and interested in learning more drawing and painting, or engraving. In the workshops they receive materials for free and they learn from both our teachers and teachers that come from outside. We received 40 applications, and we accepted 28 youth who finished activities in October. 15 youth decided to continue coming and learning with us.

We had an Engraving workshop in wood called  "Tonals and Nahuales" with Issvan Duarte, from Oaxaca. In which, in addition to the technique, the interpretation of the Zapotec calendar was taught and expressed in different engravings.

September

In September we held the First “Cultural Week” at the Antonio Lavoisier Telesecundaria in San Andrés Tzicuilan, in which 222 young people participated. 115 men and 107 women who received music, drawing, mural painting, engraving and singing workshops for a week. That same week on Saturday we held a small concert in Casa Tiltik with the invited artists to the Cultural Week and an exhibition at Casa Tiltik, with live music and works by students from the drawing and painting workshops.. 

October

We also had a Tattoo Drawing Workshop with Edgard Gamboa, a teacher from "La Esmeralda" art school in Mexico City. At the same time, Orly Echavarry, a graduate from that same school, gave the art workshop "One, two, three for me and for all my colleagues" to women that help other women in vulnerable situations..  we offered this workshop in conjunction with the Kualnemilis, Yolpakilis Trainers Network.

We also issued the Second Call for Drawing and Engraving Scholarships. On this occasion we received 25 young people, from towns and the center of Cuetzalan. 

During all these months we continued to work with the support of the Ministry of Culture, through the FONCA program; Lemonaid & Charitea Foundation and with the donations we receive through GlobalGiving. Thank you for your valuable support!!
