If you are looking for a fun activity to get you outside this afternoon; look no further than the Maestro Entreprenurship center, located just over the tracks at S. Brazos and S. Laredo streets, on the near westside.
There, you may join lead mural artist Rhys Munoz & her assistants, artists Ana Hernández y Rudy Herrara, as they paint an 1,800 sq. ft. mural for the community.
We had the opportunity to stop by last Saturday when they kicked-off the painting part of the mural, and it was a blast.
Local youth artists Priscila Quiroz, and Ashley Salas- who have worked on refurbishing older murals in the past lent us some tips on appropriate brushes, and mixing colors as we prepared to paint cactus on a segment of wall.
All-in-all a bunch of fun, and a great way to spend an evening making friends, leaving a positive mark on the city, and generally feeling like a kid.
There’s just something really magical about mixing paint colors in a cup and getting lost in its simplistic beauty.
Every now-and-then the train passed, blaring its horn (they provided ear protection) and it only seemed to add to the enjoyment of a summer evening outside, painting with friends.
The team of talented artists involved have painted many murals in the past, some with the support of San Antonio Cultural Arts.
They will be painting today and tomorrow from 3:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Meastro Entrepreneur Center.
Please note: Once the mural begins climbing higher upon the wall, the team uses scaffolding, and as such will only be looking for help from adult and more experienced artists, to assist with those upper regions.
