Marcella Roe – Creating Joy with Art

On May 7, the Cincinnati Art Club is proud to introduce Marcella Roe to the Cincinnati region. She has an extraordinaire gift in encouraging students to “Try and see…”. Marcella believes that we all have a creative nature that needs to be awakened and creates avenues and safe places for others to discover their abilities and explore their creative gifts.

Marcella describes her CAC event as a “Creating Joy” workshop, specially designed for less experienced artists who want to explore multimedia techniques. “We will work with decorative cobweb, liquid watercolor, wax paper, plastic wrap, flowers, leaves, and anything else available.”  Integrate phots into multimedia paintings. Build your confidence in the creative process. Every student will leave with a finished painting and a starting point in personal development.

Jacqueline Sullivan

Jacqueline Sullivan- Finding Your Muse
January 15 & 16, 2022

In this workshop we explore the idea that the “Muse finds you working”. Working in a series of small abstract paintings on paper, we will work quickly at the beginning of class, cranking out small series of paintings. Using acrylic paints, collage, and drawing media, we will work in multiples based on specific guidelines and examples. The speed of working will force us into working intuitively without putting two much thought into the work. Each series will develop from a given theme or technique that the instructor will present before the series is started. These small paintings will be used as sketches for larger works.
