While I was in Peru attending the school of Bellas Artes (Fine Arts) in Cusco, both as professor and as student, I was very blessed to have worked with an amazing faculty and groups of students.
The school’s administration, my mentors, other professors, and peers were welcoming, and ready to share their experiences and learning. In turn they were very open to me sharing of my knowledge and experiences within my domains of learning with all of them.
I want to take this post to give an special shout out to the director of the school, LIC Carlos Hugo Aguilar Carrasco, the academic director, LIC Luis Abdon Perez Perez, the director of the faculty of art, Yohn A Lasteros Hogaldo, for their incredible support, and also giving me a chance to prove my abilities, and my mentors and wonderful professors namely - Juan Challco, Richard Peralta, Marcial Quispe Quispe, Irwin Antonio Ferandiz Castro, Ronal Mamani, and Victor Zuniga for sharing their expertise, and in mentoring me to produce higher quality works.
My students, although I will not name names here, did a wonderful job in keeping a positive attitude through the courses, in producing some excellent and interesting work, and in also sharing of their knowledge and experiences in regard to their art and lives.
To all of those, named and not, of whom I came into contact with at this wonderful arts institutions, once again, I Thank you!!
