(For Hispanic Adult people)
Engaging in creative activities can be powerful medicine for aging challenges and recycling helps people become aware of the environment.
Art and Recycling goes hand in hand.
Calicanto Mission is training for the community and provide hispanic adult people with tools and resources in education, technology and Art.
In Art, we are developing a program for hispanic adult people who doesn’t want to enter in the technology due to their condition or because they feel more inclined to find the artist inside them.
There is substantial causal evidence that participatory art activities help to maintain the health and quality of life of older adults.

Why recycled art and for hispanic adult people?
First of all, IT’S TIME TO GO GREEN!
This is the most polluted and non eco friendly age mankind ever faced. Thanks to our different industries they have just taken the best out of our environment. But it’s about time that we should start thinking about our future and support everything that helps environment to go green. At Calicanto we believe that living in harmony with nature should be as essential condition for every living being.
As the name describes this type of art uses all kind of waste which includes old clothes, cars, appliances, furniture or anything you name it and convert it into something useful.
Art and recycling goes hand-in-hand.
Through this program we have many benefits of which it is important to point out that first we take care of our environment, it also helps adults become aware of the environment.
We want to create conscience of the necessary thing that is to take care of our planet and at the same time the art brings great benefits to the adults who are integrated to this program.
Artists can collect recyclable materials through public donations, collaboration with businesses or direct collection from solid waste stream. This innovative approach not only creates environmental awareness but also help in finding a good use for unwanted materials
