Collaborations and partnerships are at the center of sustainable development (SDG#13). After a successful collaboration with the Laguna Art Museum in 2018, we have again worked together in the 2019 version of the Art and Nature Festival. This year, we collaborated with the art education department of the museum in preparing an evening for educators in October and the Family Festival in November, event in which we explored the possibilities of making simple inks with art educators, families and enthusiastic children who came together in a day of painting.
We thank the Laguna Art Museum for this fantastic opportunity, and most importantly, for creating the conditions for children to be exposed to sustainable art experiences.

The CAES booth allowed participants the ability to explore mark-making tools using sustainable materials. They created paintbrushes with natural materials like sticks, feathers, wheat, and shells, as well as with recycled materials like cardboard, recycled plastic bags and fabric. Then they explored and collaborated with each other (sharing the brushes) to experiment with the marks that each brush created.
