SAA News, Fall 2012

Fall Demo - Marty Riskin

What has Marty Riskin been up to for the last 50 years? Ad agency art director with years of successful graphic design experience. Working from his own Boston art studio designing countless design campaigns, games, calendars and promotions of all kinds. He has illustrated over 250 books and created editorial cartoons for dozens of local newspapers. His real calling is painting in oils, acrylics, watercolors and drawing. Not only does he paint, but he teaches painting as well and is good at it. His friendly "hands-on" style gets great results with both beginners or accomplished students.
Marty's demo is free and open to the public.
October 11, 7pm at the Swampscott Senior Center, 200 Essex St. rear, Swampscott, Ma.
