because it allows for a distinctive language to be born through textures, colors and intention!
the language taught in arte dives deeply into technique and intention. questions, wondering, discoveries and a kind respect for the process is what inspires the beautiful exchange between araceli carrera and her students.
a kind invite to learn more about her
amarte, means "to love" being connected in that action & feeling present within it . in a parallel way araceli describes AMArte as, amar el arte "to love art."

"nurture" inter-generational Arte classes

often nurturing qualities can be seen in beautiful animals and their behavior.
I am inspired to teach you how to draw, illustrate, paint and design
specific animals that show and share nurturing qualities.
My approach for this month of august will be to teach the same art image/study
on Monday and Wednesday with different materials and technique on both of those days.
