Luis-Genaro Garcia is the artist of SHG's 2014 Día de los Muertos Commemorative Serigraph Print. Luis-Genaro is an artist and high school art teacher in South Central Los Angeles currently pursuing a PhD in education at Claremont Graduate University. He draws from his upbringing of growing up in a single parent household and schooling experiences to challenge traditional approaches to art education. These experiences have influenced him to teach at his alma mater, Thomas Jefferson high school.
Tours are free. If you are interested in attending, we kindly ask that you please RSVP.
