La Casa de Esperanza’s Young Artists Cultural Awareness Project was conceived as an opportunity to show the community the beauty and richness of Latin culture and teach young Hispanic and non-Hispanic artists the process of developing artwork and explore the medium of oil painting. By teaching the importance of research as the basis for artistic inspiration, along with the craftsmanship of media and technique, we strive to provide a rich and practical experience for young artists who participate in this program.
The project is supported in part by a grant from the Mary L. Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee
Foundation, the Wisconsin Arts Board that receives funds from the state of Wisconsin and the National Endowment of the Arts.
The Cultural Awareness Project is a program of La Casa de Esperanza Inc. in Waukesha. Luis Macharé is the instructor and will be teaching and assisting all participants different techniques and styles of oil painting. Luis is a graduate of the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in Lima, Peru. He built a career that spans three continents, working as an illustrator, cartoonist, fine artist and designer throughout South America, the United States and Europe.
