    “Cave Walls: Express, Empower, Transform” with Maria Elena Ferran

    Mint Hill Arts is very fortunate and honored to host at its September monthly meeting Maria Elena Ferran, one of New York's early 80's artists. After studying painting, photography, and design at Sweet Briar College and New York's School of Visual Arts, she entered the New York art scene. Her abstract paintings continually express themes of the human subconscious, nature, spirituality and world events.

    Maria Elena will give a short talk and guided discussion, followed by guided exercises, focusing on human themes, movement, color, and expression. We will then work in mixed media including acrylics, spray paint, paper, and found materials that come together to create a large, collaborative group mural that will be donated to Mint Hill Arts. 

    The impulse and desire to communicate with each other has been a driving force in society from the very beginning of human history. Inspired by the cave paintings at Lascaux, “Cave Walls: Express, Empower, Transform,” this collaborative program is designed, for artists of all skill levels, to open up the creative mind, remove blocks, and empower and build expressive confidence with art materials while connecting with other participants through intuitive visual messaging. Developing a creative visual dialogue with others will help build both confidence and empathy, and foster an atmosphere of cooperation and community connection. 

    The program is free and open to the public.  Mark your calendars to attend this special event on Tuesday, September 26, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Mint Hill Arts at 11205 Lawyers Road in Mint Hill.
