Meet the Teacher Blog Series: Meet Cheri Rol MDA

Registration for Oceans of Color, our 45th Annual SDP International Conference & Expo, is open! Over the past several weeks, we’ve introduced you to some of our class teachers so you can learn about the projects they’ll be teaching and why you should register for their classes.

Today we meet Cheri Rol MDA! Read our interview with Cheri to learn more about her and why you should sign up for her four classes in Daytona Beach!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’ve been in the arts for a while now, first as a fine artist and then a decorative artist. I grew up in California but I’ve lived many different places - each of which inspires different subject matter.

In a few words, tell us about the classes you’re teaching at Oceans of Color.

In my first class, The Beach Bum, Sherry C. Nelson MDA, TDA and I will share our talents and styles of oil painting. This painting will be a “forever” memory of Daytona Beach!

In A Perfect Pair, you’ll paint this delightful duo and learn many different techniques!

The painting you’ll make in A Single Tomato has a contemporary look. We’ll explore how a light from behind works and how it makes the tomato glow.

I will also be teaching Advancing Your Skills, a skills workshop geared toward skills needed to enter the Certification Program. I am passionate about the Certification Program because you grow in knowledge and in skills that advance your art. These techniques apply to fine art, folk art, landscape, portraits, and more.

Why should someone take your classes?

You’ll learn why you are using the colors, values and intensities to achieve the best end results.

What are you looking forward to the most at Oceans of Color?

I love teaching and look forward to reconnecting with past students and friends.

What do you love most about the painting industry?

I love the fact that there are no limits! Colors, styles, surfaces – all the possibilities.

Register for Cheri’s classes and our other classes and events at Oceans of Color. Stay tuned to meet another teacher soon right here on the SDP Blog!
