In this month of July and at the beginning of next August, the Olga Sinclair Foundation will take its painting workshops to schools supported by the Waved Foundation in Panama City and Pedasí and, with the purpose of innovating in the school experience and contributing to the artistic development of students, using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as a theme.

 Both foundations, together with the private company Panama Coworking and supported by the United Nations Development Program, the Ministries of Social Development, Education and the National Secretariat for Children, Adolescents and the Family, unite in this initiative, which seeks to teach and familiarize primary students with the Objectives of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations and also help them have contact with art.”
