As multidisciplinary artist and fully believer in Art as a healing tool, I am blessed with the opportunity to create community murals and art projects.
These murals and art projects are designed to increase self, community and environmental awareness as well as empowerment, self steam, inclusion and sense of belonging. Through my workshops participants develop hand, problem solving, and communication skills. Some of my clients: Ottawa School Board,Operation Come Home, Ottawa Community Housing, Crime Prevention Ottawa, The City of Ottawa, Youth Service Bureau, St Laurent Mall Centre. I am also a MASC artist, and as such I create murals in schools across Eastern Ontario.
Please visit Claudia Salguero Projects to see my portfolio or click on any of the pictures bellow to see details of some of my community murals and other projects.
“A tribute to Claudia Salguero. The Mural Painting Community Project is analogous to the United Nations. The function is the same, a group of very different people get together to do something worthwhile. The reason for our success is, we checked our egos and indifferences at the door. If the leaders of the world would follow our example, the protection of this planet and world peace could be achieved. I have to pay tribute to our very artistic, talented and warm hearted facilitator Claudia Salguero who held our hands and lead us all the way. Claudia, I will not be surprised if someone at the UN sees this tribute, they would be knocking at your door to give you a portfolio to be in charge of world peace"

“This mural was not only created by community spirit; it creatively reflects our diverse and inclusive community. Newcomers are an essential component to our city’s continued growth, vibrancy, and economic prosperity.”
The WOW Transformation Mural
Mayor Jim Watson, City of Ottawa, 2019
“We are delighted to see the WOW Transformation mural unveiled today, which was created by the community and for the community to celebrate Ottawa’s diversity, underline the importance of inclusion and enhance awareness of the contributions of newcomers to Ottawa. A special thanks goes to the lead artist, Claudia Salguero. Because of her creativity, tenacity, hard work and unique ability to bring so many volunteers together from across the city, this mural became a reality"

“…I realized right away how passionate and dedicated Claudia is about using Art as tool for self-expression and bringing people together. Her creative energy and skillsets help top break barriers and convey powerful messages. She help Youth think outside their comfort zone, use their imagination and use art mediums and technology in ways they have never been exposed to before”.
