A Center for art in the High Amazon

Sachaqa Centro de Arte is the art center owned by Trina Brammah that I stayed at in South America. Trina was on a break at this time because she was expecting her first baby and building the center. I got to spend a lot of time learning from her and helping her and her husband  build their art center with a local earthen housing technique called  Quincha. She has continued building ans offers classes here I highly recommend it to anyone.

Here are the Earth pigments we collected from the river.
The rocks are gound up into a fine powder that then can be mixed with a binder to make paints.
