ACAA APRIL MEETING: At this month’s meeting on April 11th, Marleen Olive will demonstrate mono printing using watercolor and acrylic paint on Akus and gelatin printing plates. She will be doing direct printing on the plates, using found and made objects. She will also share how to make your own gelatin plate.
Marleen majored in art in college but says she really didn’t do much with her 
degree until 1980 when she took a series of workshops with well known artists in watercolor, acrylics, pastels, and mixed media. From there Marleen started teaching art at local art associations and at the Southwestern Community College in Brookings, OR until her move to West Point in 1999. She has continued to teach art classes, including watercolor classes currently at the Upcountry Community Center in Pine Grove. Contact Marleen at marleeno@excite.com for more information.
