The Luis A. Noboa Naranjo Museum presented yesterday, for the fifth consecutive year, a pictorial exhibition called “Los Colores de la Naturaleza” (Colors of Nature), performed by 200 students with disabilities of the Hilarte Community Association.
Patricia Toro Yépez, Hilarte’s Resource Coordinator says it is the fifth year that this exhibition takes place and explains that “this work includes the processes that children live throughout the school year as a result of the workshops developed by mixing art with therapeutic accompaniment”.
“We work through art, with children from 2 to 6 years old and with children and young people with special abilities, Which is the reason for this shows,” says Patricia.
Hilarte is an institution comprised by therapists, artists and educators, specializing in pedagogy through art as a process of social development.
“Our main strengths are the dance, painting and theater. Music is not covered at all because of the hard work of finding music teachers who want to go that far (western suburb of Guayaquil) and who can and want to work with Children with Special Needs (…)”
Proceeds from the sale of the paintings will serve to purchase materials and equipment of this institution.
