Milan Teaches the Powerful and

Prophetic Nature of the Arts
Do you want to find the meaning behind your creative endeavors?
Art has always been utilized as a form of communication and
expression. Colors, textures and lines speaks to us visually, creating
and evoking our emotions. Historically, art was utilized to tell of
human kind; in those stories we have crated universal archetypes
that represent meaning behind forms. In the Prophetic Art
Workshop you will learn to cultivate these techniques. If you are
interested in the patterns throughout nature that visually appeals to
us, how we subconsciously repeat this proportion in our
composition, how creativity is used to tell allegories of our lives and
how this can bring reform, this class is for you. Through the
exploration of meaning and forms in art, you will create a symbolic
painting spoken to you; a depiction of your intuition. In the
completion of this class you will learn to interpret and bring
visionary meaning to your painting. All art supplies are provided.

I am ecstatic to begin this adventure
with the Milan Art Institute. So much
of this chapter in my life is new. I
came from a home full of my wild
amazing family, to starting a new,
independent life where I am
constantly pushed to utilize all of
which I have learned not only from
my education at UT but from my work
experience. I have worked with
paints both acrylic and oil, lightly in
watercolor, charcoal, oil pastels,
graphite, clay and metal. Here at the
Milan Art Institute I get to enjoy an
atmosphere that, back home, was
always privately mine. Watching
people of all ages explore their
creativity, learn new techniques, and
push themselves apply both the
classical and innovative methods the
Milan has to offer is incredible and
inspiring. With my future goals to
obtain my Masters Degree in Art
Therapy, I believe in the MIAs vision:
that the visual arts are enlightening,
transformational, and uplifting. I am
dedicated to share and support their

Artist Spotlight: Cecilia Calderon

Cecilia Calderon was born and raised in Mexico
City, where she received her bachelor's degree in
graphic design and started her own stained glass
and sculpture studio in 1981.
By 1995, she moved with her husband and four
children to Austin, Texas, where she continued with
her studio doing extensive commission work for
architects, designers, and private clients. There she
learned the art of working with copper and fell in
love with it. Cecilia feels that copper, which has
been mined and used in the Americas for
centuries, is a noble and beautiful material.
