The student life office encourages students to participate in the Painting with a Hispanic Twist event 2-4 p.m. Wednesday in the craft room in Loftin Student Center.
Carrie Hernandez, senior success specialist, encourages students to come express themselves through art at this Hispanic Heritage Month event.
“We have a total of 20 canvases, paintbrushes and colors; spots are pretty limited,” she said. “Everything is supplied. I know a lot of students are on a budget, and this is a great way to engage students without busting their college budget.”
Angela McGuire, a professional artist from Inspire Institute, will instruct the event and teach students how to draw and paint Frida Kahlo, a Mexican painter known for her self-portraits. Her work has been celebrated internationally, as she is known as one of Mexico’s greatest artists. Her paintings were exhibited in Paris and Mexico before her death in 1954.
“Although this is the second time SAC has hosted this event, it is the first time an artist will allow students to paint freely without any sketches done by an artist beforehand,” Hernandez said. “Students will be able to paint freely and learn a bit about Frida as well.”
