In the same way, a second workshop for children was held on June 29, with the participation of Warholitos. In this edition, the children had the opportunity to enter the fantasy atmosphere of the exhibition, in which they served as explorers of a strange land to know it, find a piece of bark, feel it, be aware of the details and sensations to the touch and let the imagination fly by setting it in motion to paint with watercolors the conclusion of its findings as explorers.

On June 27, the first drawing workshop was held in Machete. Sponsored by Moleskine where the artist Marcos Castro gave a workshop for adults that consisted in generating a sensory experience through his works and the setting of the exhibition, inviting the participants to stop for a moment, analyze and be inspired by the environment that surrounds and in this way increase creativity to translate their ideas into paper.
