Estali may have its poor parts and sad sights, but the hundred murals painted by FunArte add to the city's charm and hopeful feel. FunArte, another non-profit organization, offers free art classes for the children of Esali. When conjuring up an idea for a mural, the children discuss and choose an issue of importance that involves their personal community. Some of these themes include hope, racial equality, health education, empowerment of women and children, and motivation. The children and volunteer artists then design a sketch for the mural and progress into the actual painting process.
This liberating and educational process has proved helpful for many youth in Nicaragua. Not only has FunArte helped to beautify Estali, it has worked to empower children and encourage them to access their inner artists.
