Have Fun with Creative Collage Techniques!
Cincinnati, Ohio artist, Merle Rosen, has always been one of my favorite local painters. Her use of bold color and contrasts results in expressive, vibrant paintings full of energy. She teaches in a way that is both spontaneous and grounded, inspiring students (like myself) to be creative, while keeping them on track with values, proportions and the elements needed for a strong foundation. Merle’s artistsnetwork.tv DVDs on using acrylic collage are just as good as being in her classes. I hope you’ll enjoy these workshops!
