Francisco Huerta Rendon School (Salinas, Ecuador)
Art Program Draws on Local Talent
Trifecta Arts is proud to partner with the Francisco Huerta Rendon School in Salinas, Ecuador. This public school, located on the southwestern coast of Ecuador, has over 600 students in grades 1-10. We are fortunate to have the full support of the school’s Director, Sonia Monserrate, to offer free art classes before and after school.
The inaugural program will involve approximately 75 students selected by the Lead Art Instructor, Estela Lima. Senora Lima is a professional artist and art educator who serves as a member of the Casa de Culture in the Santa Elena Province. She studied at Universidad Laica Vincent Rocafuerte Guayaquil and attended the Colegio Sagrados Corazones Ecuador (CSSC). During her long career, Lima has participated in many art exhibitions, art competitions, and has been featured in publications highlighting Ecuador’s most respected artists. We are also pleased to have Estela’s sons, Mauro and David, assisting her with the instruction to accommodate the large number of participants.
This initial 4 week session will run from August 29th to September 21 with classes held twice each week. The students will each be awarded a Certificate of Completion and their artwork will be displayed at the school and featured on the Trifecta Arts Initiative Page.
The pictures shown below were taken during the art evaluation and are just a brief glimpse of the natural talent these lovely children possess.
