Calling all art enthusiasts ages 9-12! Learn the art of painting murals from Allan Justino Lindo Muñoz, a renowned Nicaragua muralist and artist. In this free workshop, Allan will share his invaluable insights, techniques, and secrets of mural painting. 

Allan started teaching art in 2006 at the Xuchialt School in Leon, Nicaragua.  He currently teaches art at the El Centro de Arte Fundación Ortiz Gurdián, the best contemporary art center in Central America where he works among paintings by artists such as the renowned Nicaraguan painter Armando Morales, as well as works by artists such as Rubens, Miró, Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Fernando Botero and Roberto Matta.

Allan has participated in artistic exchanges to the U.S. and Spain.  On this trip to the northeast U.S, he will be meeting other muralists, running workshops, and raising support for a Nicaragua- based program called “Believe in Art,” that focuses on promoting art and culture in Leon, Nicaragua by offering, drawing, painting and music classes for all ages.
