Monthly Demonstrations

Mint Hill Arts is proud to sponsor ongoing monthly demonstrations the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM in the Gallery.

Mint Hill Arts’ August demonstration, which is free and open to the public, features Ráed Al-Rawi, whose topic is “Painting without Fear: Basic Color Mixing and Expressive Painting.” The objective is to simplify drawing, painting and color mixing. Al-Rawi says, “You will learn basic color mixing as we start with the simple composition of a landscape.”

Al-Rawi will demonstrate mixing three primary colors to show how you can get many important colors before adding Titanium White. He will demonstrate how to complete the first stage of a landscape painting in an impressionistic style using only one large brush.

Ráed Al-Rawi has been a painting instructor at Central Piedmont Community College since 2004. He also teaches illustration, animation and painting at Community School of the Arts. He has worked as a graphic designer and artist in North Carolina since 1980.


Our monthly demonstrations, presented by Mint Hill members and artists from across the Charlotte area, are free and open to the public.

Come learn with us, and bring a friend or two!
