There is also a mural by Eleanor Coen from 1941 and the very famous unfinished mural by David Alfaro Siqueiros The building is a former monastery which was converted into a fine-art's school in 1938.  The beautiful building was originally constructed 1755-1765 and hosts now classes in drawing, painting, ceramic and weaving also in printmaking and music.
