alma casso

 

Alma Casso, provides an artistic and intellectual art style for students of all ages, thru her art classes at Let’s Paint! studio.  Let’s Paint! Studio teaches its students to protect the environment by using environmentally-sound painting methods.  Ms. Alma Casso is housed at the McAllen Creative Incubator, Studio #1.  She was recently awarded a grant from the McAllen Arts Council.  The Grant will help her achieve her dream of creating a traveling exhibition of several iconic or magical, as she calls it, places in McAllen.  The traveling exhibition will be available for display later this year.  For now, we can enjoy Alma’s work which will remain on display at the Incubator, until the end of August 2015.

“I like people to feel an emotional impact when they see my work,” Alma Casso says. “I want them to realize they are surrounded by beauty, by energy and this is what gives meaning to life.”
