Art for All—To Benefit Ojala Niños Building Fund!

Elsmarie Norby

On Sunday, November 6, from 12 to 4pm in Rancho de San Miguel Viejo, enjoy delicious food and drink, great music by Los Peques, a tour to the historic chapel at 1pm, and a fabulous array of art produced by the children, local residents, and donated from several estates and and many wonderful artists. There are many traditional Mexican art pieces, sculptures, paintings, and textiles. There is something for everyone—priced to sell! Ojala Niños is a nonprofit alternative education program that has served this community for the last eight years with free classes for all ages, five days a week. Arts, music, literacy, health, environment, sports, yoga, and social service are offered with special field trips to concerts, art exhibits, and visits to workshops and studios. Now it’s time to build our Community Learning Center to serve more children and adults all day, five to six days a week, with more classes and more opportunities to learn skills that lead to sustainable living for so many underserved families.

“Art for All” in San Miguel Viejo

A Benefit for the Ojala Niños Building Fund

Sun, Nov 6, 12–4pm

Chapel Tour at 1pm

The land has been bought and we have the plans, which will include a community gardening site where children will plant, tend, and harvest their own food. This event will be the beginning for the building fund to accomplish this great dream. The mission of this project is to provide the opportunities that build pride and self-confidence and offer new life skills to so many intelligent talented folks who live in rural areas in Mexico. We are a model for this.

Hope is an illusion without opportunity! So join us this Sunday and help us make a really good start toward this great goal.

Ojala Niños has a song that all the children sing lustily:

We are the children of Ojala!

We paint, we plant, we build, we laugh,

We sing, we dance, we celebrate.

We find the good and praise it…

We hold on to what is good!

We are the children of Ojala!

Driving directions to San Miguel Viejo: Go to the train station, cross the tracks, and go straight onto the cobblestone road ahead. Follow signs and take the first left fork.

Parking is provided on your left. Walk down the hill to the party. For walkers, take a bus or taxi to the Bodega Aurrera and walk straight west to the train station. Cross tracks carefully and continue on a beautiful walk in the country side.
