Right now Lauren is spending her spring break in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, as part of the Mayan Arts Program. She and her fellow students are teaching art to elementary students in a remote highland village. (Remote in geography and culture--there are two translators per class--English to Spanish and Spanish to the local dialect!)
As part of her course work (this is a class she had to compete to enter) Lauren will also be learning crafts from the local women (probably weaving). When she returns, she'll create a reaction project, probably a book or photo exhibit.
Anyway, the program has a website and blog. There's not much posted there right now, but you can check it out here if you're interested. (Actually, scroll up and down a bit--Len just noticed that some days are posted out of chronological order.)
