The space was founded in January 2010 by Katie Clancy and began as a project-based art program strictly for the residents of the Buen Pastor. Selling her own artwork and running fund-raising artshows and events to provide necessary materials and later, build the space, Clancy tried to incorporate a variety of fields and individual artists and educators into the program as possible. The primary goal was always to provide the girls a variety of opportunities for creative exploration and expression.
However, the other most important objectives were to cultivate a community of Artists that are interested in collaborative projects and in working with the youth of this community as well as raising awareness and strengthening the relationship that El Buen Pastor has with the outside community.
Throughout much movement, change and development over these past years, we are happy to welcome the public of Guanajuato to know, work and play in eStudio 473 with us this year. We are proud and excited to share our beautiful space all you, young and old!
