What will YOU learn from LAx/IdeAL?

Milagro, from its very early days, has placed great emphasis on the importance of the arts in education. Many of the artists who have partnered with us over the decades also work to promote enrichment in the schools.  This year, together with the Latino Artists eXchange/ Intercambio de Artistas Latinos, we have organized yet another opportunity to share, learn and be a part of this enrichment process to provide diverse and unique educational opportunities for our region and community. The 4th annual LAx/IdeAL gathering takes place this...

The ladies of Opción Múltiple: Petra, portrait of a vixen (bilingüe)

  PETRA: Like blind passion itself, she is at once desired and feared. She is not ruthless, however, simply attuned to her desires… and hers only. Always impeccably made-up, even to lounge at home, her instincts are as  sharp as her nails and she is ever ready to entrap or capture whomever stands in her way or can make her goals possible, as the case may be. If you want to make life interesting, just try to take control, but beware the consequences: something or someone’s going to give! Sign: Scorpio Favorite dessert: Apple...

Julia: a woman with a plan (Bilingüe)

JULIA: If you want something done right, let Julia plan it: it might not work out just how you want it, but at least you’ll have a road map and a drill sergeant to lead the march. Armed with the stereotypical weapon of Latina moms, she wields her chancla (slipper or sandal) while doing her best to keep the willful members of her family in line as needed. However, she has her own thoughts and desires, and keeping herself on task is not always possible. Sign: Libra Favorite book: 50 Shades of Grey JULIA: Si quiere algo hecho...

A different “Diana”: sniffing out Sabueso in Opción Múltiple (bilingüe)

A different “Diana”: sniffing out Sabueso in Opción Múltiple (bilingüe)

SABUESO: Although far from the brightest bulb in the chandelier, his loyalty and protective nature are never in question, and in fact, reflect the nature of his nickname (sabueso means “hound” in Spanish). That being said, the medal for “Best Guard Dog” is not in the cards for him as long as he keeps those headphones pressed to his head. Music, like his bark, are his form of refuge, and if we dig deeper, we find his tender center that needs as much loving care as the rest of his chattier family. Sign: Aries Favorite...

The ladies of Opción Múltiple: Olga, the little girl with a big secret

OLGA: Truly young at heart, she has a flair for the dramatic that is certain to make an impression. A fashionista from a young age, she also enjoys fine foods and watching movies. She may not always understand everything, but  her childhood has given her great wisdom that is belied by her apparent innocence. Even though it may seem she is not so stable, it is impossible to forget she continues to learn from the world (and personalities) around her. Sign: Virgo Favorite movie: Must Love Dogs OLGA: Con un corazón verdaderamente joven, su...
