Mayan JovenArte: A Catalyst for Cultural Preservation and Community Enrichment


Mayan JovenArte is a distinguished collective of emerging artists who preserve Mayan culture and enrich their community through the arts. Based in San Juan La Laguna, this association stands out for its commitment to cultural transmission and community support.

Current Initiatives:

Retail Presence: 

Mayan JovenArte has made a significant impact with its presence on the renowned Artists’ Street, a platform that amplifies local artistic talents and brings recognition and admiration to Mayan art.

Gallery-School Installation: 

The collective is in the advanced stages of setting up an innovative gallery school near the entrance of the Kaqasiiwaan viewpoint. This space will facilitate various educational and artistic activities and be a dynamic hub for cultural exchange and creative development.

Educational Programs: 

 The gallery school’s educational programs are designed to provide immersive experiences in Mayan art to local children and visiting enthusiasts. With structured classroom instruction and home assignments, the programs foster a comprehensive understanding of artistic techniques. Students typically acquire the foundational skills necessary to paint on canvases with a testament to the effectiveness of our approach in four months.

Community Support: 

Beyond art education, Mayan JovenArte supports low-income children by providing essential school supplies through a voucher system for bookstore access.

Educational Structure and Timeline:

Weekly Instructional Hours: 

Each student receives four hours of structured classroom instruction weekly, ensuring a rigorous academic schedule.

Home Assignments: 

Students are assigned activities to complete at home, reinforcing the concepts and techniques introduced during classroom sessions.

Skill Acquisition Timeline: 

It is estimated that students need approximately four months to develop the foundational skills necessary to commence painting on canvases.

Fee Structure:

Tuition for Children: 

The monthly tuition fee for child students is $535.

This includes all required materials, ensuring students have the resources needed for a complete learning experience.
