The Guadalupe el Torrero (GeT) Foundation is honored to collaborate with the IMAS to present the artwork of students from Brewster School and San Isidro School. Middle school students from Brewster and San Isidro submitted artworks for the inaugural GeT Foundation Art Contest. The goals of this contest focused on encouraging students to produce art and connect with their creativity at school through drawing, photography, painting, and digital art.
