Artist Spotlight

Marlené: Watercolor Collage Class

Born and raised in MacArthur Park. Art has always been a way for me to reconnect to my Guatemalan Mayan roots and have a voice when my words can’t capture my truth. Nothing brings me more joy than guiding others into their own creativity which always leads to their freedom and healing.  I am currently a teaching artist at the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) and nomadically travel all over LA to paint and give art lessons. I never thought being an artist would happen to me, now I am living a dream come true.
