Lisa Ryan gave a remarkable hand’s on demonstration of her creative skills at our recent Raytown Artists meeting on April 27th to an appreciative crowd!
Lisa is known for her wildly colorful collages. Her beautiful work is currently on display during the month of May at the Clubhouse, located at 512 E 18th Street in the Crossroads Arts District.
During our meeting Lisa took everyone step-by-step through the process of creating their own personal collage. The process turned out to be simple considering the beauty of the final outcome. Lisa’s instructions were easy to follow and her friendly demeanor brought a smile to all the participents. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful demonstration!
