    Doing what we can to keep the art center cool

    Day 188

    Keeping Cool

    The energy at the Centro Arte Para La Paz is always high. There are kids creating art, teens playing music, visitors at the museum, community events…phew! All that activity is wonderful – but it can also get really hot.

    While we were visiting, we noticed that none of the classrooms had fans – or if they did, they looked pretty old and a little bit broken.

    So we thought we’d do what we could to make those classrooms a little cooler.

    The quick answer? More fans!

    These fans aren’t necessary to create beautiful, vibrant art. But they don’t hurt! A little breeze will help kids and adults alike keep cool, calm, and collected as they discover their creativity, talents, and the simple joy of being together.
