The Children's Art Program Mural

The Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic, Mexico is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the mutual exchange of knowledge, expertise, culture, heritage, language and talents, thereby contributing to the social enrichment of its members as well as the lakeside Mexican community.

Annually, we have almost 3,000 members and associates from nations around the world. For almost 60 years, we have been helping newcomers and old-timers, both full and part-time, to have a more enjoyable and stress-free life here at Lakeside.

In addition to providing social, recreational and educational opportunities for expatriates, the Society also assists the local Mexican community through education in computer technology, English, art, and academic programs, as well as offering an ongoing student aid program and Spanish language library.

ASA Makes Significant Donation to the LCS Children's Art Program!


ASA Presentation of DonationDuring a presentation made at a recent Ajijic Society of the Arts (ASA) meeting, President Deena Hafker pledged a donation of $21,000 pesos for the LCS Children's Art Program. These funds are to be used for art supplies for the Saturday morning classes, plus materials for the annual five-day summer art camp this July. Both the classes and Art Camp are held at the LCS campus in Ajijic.

The funds were raised by ASA members during their “Open Studios” event in February of this year. Participants paid $50 pesos each to visit almost 20 working art studios to watch local artists at work.

Between 60 and 100 local children attend the free Saturday art classes from 10am to noon. Over 100 children are expected to attend the daily Art Camp sessions Monday through Friday, starting on July 20. A sale of the works they create will be held on Saturday, July 26, and will be open to the public.

There will be no charge to attend the Art Camp, but children must register in advance because spaces in each workshop are limited to allow for proper instruction.

More information about any aspect of the LCS Children's Art Program is available from the program Manager, Danielle Pagé at childrensart@lakechapalasociety.com.
