Nicaraguan artist Marlon Moreno. Marlon is the Director of the Taller Xuchialt which is a community art school in the Sutiava barrio of Leon. An officially accredited school serving over 120 young students annually.
The school offers the cityâ€™s only four-year program in drawing, painting, music, and folkloric dance. It also brings the arts to the public, including cultural performances of music and dance. Furthermore, the school reaches out to children who have little access to the arts by providing scholarships to economically challenged families and bringing instruction to the outlying communities such as Talolinga and Monte Horet.
The school has hosted visiting artists from the U.S. and annually welcomes several delegations. Meanwhile artists from Xuchialt have brought their talents to the world.
