Casa Amarela welcomes teachers and artists for weekly and/or monthly workshops and classes. 

From graffiti, to collage, painting, drawing and other very inventive art workshops, the children are developing their creative and imaginative senses. Other artists and teachers from all around Brazil are occasionally coming to share their talents and experiences with our children, teenagers and adults. 

We are very thankful for the presence of all of them and for their guidance in the development of our youth. It is a daily learning experience that the children are sharing together with local or international people, which brings life to Casa Amarela.

Get to know them a little more by reading the descriptions below.

  Talita Milanez - Art Therapy   As an art therapist I look into developing through therapy and explore the different languages of the art, the reconnection of the individual with himself/herself associating it to his/her artistic production. It could be through non-verbal expression and communication with aspects of ourselves outside of our consciousness. This process has for objective self-knowledge bringing new tools to the individual, which will enhance him/her not only individually but also collectively, with the goal to reach closer to his/her own consciousness.
