Next Workshop June 17 – 25

The second Design4Kids workshop for Fotokids will again be held in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala this June, 2009.

Are you an art director, designer, illustrator, web developer, photographer, or a new media, pre-press, marketing or ad-agency professional? Have you ever dreamed of sharing your hard-earned skills with talented and motivated young people? Have you ever longed to travel to a lush tropical village on the shores of a deep blue lake while staying in a comfortable resort? Then this event is perfect for you.

The next Design4Kids workshop will again be conducted at La Posada de Santiago. You will be working with the amazing staff and kids from Fotokids. Nancy and Bree are dedicated to educating these kids, and the kids are some of the most talented, respectful, and motivated teens you will ever want to meet. Don’t worry about whether you speak Spanish, the Fotokids staff is bilingual and can translate very well.

The plan is to arrive in Guatemala on June 17th and spend that night in the gorgeous colonial town of Antigua. It will be an opportunity to rest from travels, explore the town, and get to know each other better. The next morning June 18th the kids will join us and we will all travel up to Lake Atitlan to settle in and begin our workshop in the afternoon. We will then be in workshop everyday from 8 to 5 through June 24th, have a closing party that evening, and return to Guatemala City and the airport on the morning of June 25th.

The cost for the workshop is $1389 which covers ground transportation, meals, and lodging (airfare is not included).
