In the summer of 2015 Choclo Project travelled to Mexico with a clear goal : to use art to transform the lives of the children at Misión México. By nourishing their creative skills, teaching them new artistic techniques and giving value to their work we were able to present art as a means to improving their situation, by providing them with an education. Aside from building their confidence and self-esteem through art we encouraged their creativity and self-expression through surfing and yoga. These activities are not only vital in teaching them life skills but also improving their health and well-being. During these sessions they were able to forget their past and simply enjoy the moment.
Creative freedom surrounds the Choclo Project. Obviously we are dedicated to providing the children we sponsor with the freedom to express themselves but we also strive to provide them with choices and opportunities.
