Mural Dedication: Esperanza Academy Charter School

Come dedicate a new mural at Esperanza Academy Charter School with us! The result of a two-year partnership between the school and our Arts Integration Program, the mural depicts two students nestled amidst foliage, flora, and fauna, representing the various Central and South American countries from which students’ families originate.

Artist Patricia Barrera worked with students from the school to create the final design. The goal of the project, she says, is “to foster identity, promote self-awareness, encourage communal development, present opportunities for positive social and individual growth, nurture artistic growth and exploration, and encourage development of a personal voice.”
