Saeta Hernando is the ideologist and creator of IDYL Learning. The project is linked to his personal and professional development. The idea for this project was born in July 1997 during a comic workshop for children which he taught in Mons (Belgium), invited by the association ORO Productions S.B.L. On the day the works were presented, he understood the importance of uniting all the arts in an interdisciplinary integration project and worked to achieve this.
In 2011 he meets dancer, choreographer and trainer Bettina Inés Truffat interested in holistic education through art. She joins the project as a co-creator, giving it a more didactic and dynamic approach.
IDYL Learning is the result of several years of working together.
