Volunteer Opportunity for Artists & Art Educators
We received an email from ASART, a wonderful non-profit based in Central America. In their own words…“We work with national and international volunteers throughout Costa Rica and Nicaragua in order to develop different types of projects. Through Art, we try to continuously transform the community. We share new techniques and ideas with kids, teenagers and adults, as well as we try to bring consciousness about social responsibility. ASART provides free workshops in schools and shelters for abandoned and abused children. For example, through artistic recycling we promote love and respect for nature. This involves using non-biodegradable wastes to create jewelry, artwork, masks, toys and more. ASART also creates murals with children in educational institutions or community centers, instilling a sense of pride through the representation of their own drawings on walls in their communities. We want to share this experience with students that like volunteering!” Read more on their website here and spread the word!
