Fostering a Love of Arts & Culture throughout Austin

Experience art firsthand through after-school art classes and multimedia art projects by LUPE Arte in Austin, Texas. Our programs teach leadership skills, encourage team building, and enhance self-esteem while promoting personal responsibility and accountability. Our students have access to professional artists who teach visual and performing arts to them.

Niños Y Arte (Children & Art)

This program focuses on after-school art classes throughout the Austin Independent School District. Niños Y Arte is an after-school enrichment art program that teaches students about various art disciplines. LUPE Arte art instructors create an arts education curriculum fostering multicultural learning experiences.

Mujeres Y Arte (Women & Art)

The Mujeres Y Arte program sponsors women artists with a platform to exhibit their works of art in their preferred media, including visual and performing art productions. LUPE Arte focuses on female artists who need support and sponsorship, and our artists then pay it forward by teaching their art disciplines to youth enrolled in our after-school classes.

LUPE Arte Multimedia Project

We are dedicated to supporting creative ideas and promoting multimedia art that combines multiple disciplines. Our artists employ short stories, film, animation, theatre and drama, photos and images, painting, music, and technology to generate mixed-media art projects.

"Peña" Documentary

Currently, LUPE Arte is working on "Peña," a documentary about charrería in Austin and Travis County, produced by LUPE Arte and directed by Richard Striebel. "Peña" documents charreadas in Austin, Texas, initiated by the Daniel Peña family. A traditional colonial Spanish equestrian art, charrería's Austin roots stem from the 1920s, when the Peña family was instrumental in supporting it here. Today, their charreadas are family affairs dedicated to the art of charrería. You will meet the people that love the art, the challenges, and the tradition of the charro lifestyle.

"Life After" Documentary

Next in the works is our documentary, "Life After." This film takes you through the day-to-day life of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families. You see how they prepare and coordinate a day in their life, experiencing their struggles, obstacles, and triumphs. "Life After" exposes the joy of IDD individuals learning and participating in arts and life skill programs. You also meet the innovators who have come together to create programs for IDD individuals. In this quest, Gerard, the University of Texas, LUPE Arte, and DSACT combine their resources to pioneer a platform that will forever integrate individuals with IDD.
