MINT HILL – Cindy Angelelli will present “Express, Relax & Reflect with Art Journaling” as part of the August demonstration at Mint Hill Arts.
The mixed media artist creates unique artwork and accessories that enable people to affordably express their individualism. She incorporates original photography, fabric, found objects and paint into colorful, textural works inspired by nature, literature and life’s simple pleasures.
Angelelli’s free lecture/demonstration at 7 p.m. Aug. 27 at the Mint Hill Arts, 11205 Lawyers Road will inspire beginning and experienced artists to try their hand at art journaling and mixed media.
Mixed media art is often used in art journaling, in which both images and words are captured in a journal for the purposes of self-reflection, memory-keeping and artistic exploration.
Angelelli, a lifelong photographer, took up painting after retiring from Duke Energy. She has blended her love of photography, painting, collage and boundary-crossing into a mixed media style.
She serves on the executive committee at Mint Hill Arts, where she is the grant writer and an art instructor.
