Our goal is to facilitate educational travel to Cuba that will result in meaningful intercultural interactions between art doers, viewers, historians and critics from Cuba and the United States. Visits to Cuban artists' studios and art and educational institutions, together with conferences, hands-on workshops and demonstrations provide unequaled education as you experience Cuba's rich cultural diversity.
Marcos Carvajal Art Gallery - CubArtEdu customizes all travel arrangements for individual travelers, groups of 8 delegates or larger groups with a maximum of 15 delegates, including lodging in hotels or private houses (B&B), ground transportation, and specialized people-to-people activities in the fields of visual arts, dance, architecture, music, cultural diversity, art education and the application of the arts in community development projects. Our customized programs for arts and educational organizations can include a fundraising option. In addition, we offer art-making workshops experiences in the fields of painting, photography and printmaking.

Given this premise we have the intention of doing an initial assessment of expectations and experiences among the members of a group once all participants are registered in a program. Then, based on that assessment (an online survey), we will redesign the workshop and meet with the group (face-to-face or online) before the trip to make sure that agreement about programmed activities and what to expect.
Facilitating learning with adult learners requires the following steps:
