Hi, We are Laura and Tatiana - We are two friends that seek to build society a through of art.

Its objective is the cultural exchange for the acquisition of knowledge that allows to positively impact the socio-cultural environment of the Gutierrez community.
The focus of this project is teaching English to the community from 4 to 11 years for the children of "primary" through dynamics, games, and activities that contribute to the life of the person.
