Fluent in both English and Spanish, Mr. Fuentes is just pure awesomeness! Born on a distant planet, he came to the United States as a child and quickly learned that he had developped artistic superpowers on Earth. He is on a mission to enlighten the lives of all Earthlings and to make the world a better place through art. When he is not fantasizing about saving the world from zombie chickens and man-eating robots, he can be found in his home studio working on his latest sculpture projects or surrealist illustrations. Just like Willy Wonka, Mr. Fuentes lives in a world of pure imagination. Mr. Fuentes would like to invite you to join him in his art class in a fun and creative kinesthetic experience where you will learn by doing and cooperate with others by sharing ideas, experiences and techniques.
