Cocoa Art

Medium: Acrylic and textured material

Description:  Inspirational, cultural, spiritual, captivating, uplifting with a unique twist

Cocoa- Art Being in love with all forms of art has been a passion her entire life. Erica Carpening, does liturgical dance, sings, but her passion is visual art. Erica has done sketches her entire life, but it wasn’t until 2017 that she had an epiphany and embarked upon her natural gift… Painting. In July 2017, while conducting a paint party at her church for a fundraiser, Painting With Purpose was born. This self-taught and God gifted artist became an overnight sensation! From booking paint parties to selling her artwork, to now apparel! Painting With Purpose is a traveling paint party business that not only provides groups with the opportunity to come together and paint, but also provides an uplifting experience. Painting With Purpose differs from other paint party businesses in that it offers a more personal experience for participants. Painting With Purposes lives by its motto, “We Don’t Just Pour Paint, We Pour Into You”. Typically, her paint parties are hosted in homes, churches, backyards, halls and has recently branched into summer camps and school systems. Through her efforts of providing a premier paint experience, Erica Carpening maintains a high level of excellence through the arts. As a native of the Greater Hartford Area, Erica is proud that Painting With Purpose has not only reached the masses in an inspirational way through her outside of the box implementation of paint parties and through her own personal artwork, but her efforts have evolved into what will become a caveat of artistic expression through therapy art for groups and schools. Born out of Painting With Purpose, we now introduce Cocoa Art. Whether it be on canvas or an article of clothing, her style and artistic creativity will become a recognizable staple in the art world. All original pieces use the medium of acrylic and textured material. When she paints, she believes that each paint stroke, each idea and each completed piece has been hand crafted for someone specifically. Cocoa Art is Inspirational, Cultural, Spiritual, Captivating and Uplifting.
