Rosalind Mercier '68 teaches Special Effects Makeup to Art Students
Posted October 31, 2012
Rosalind Mercier '68 was a guest artist in the Foundations in Visual Art class earlier this month. Ms. Mercier was a professional makeup artist in Hollywood and at the BBC, and currently is a professional artist living in Columbus, Ohio. She taught the class, along with instructor Diane Abel, how to apply special effects or theatrical makeup. The students used latex, artificial blood, grease makeup and other supplies to create scratches, cuts, bruises, and wounds. More photos from this class workshop can be viewed on Flickr.
Ms Mercier's work is viable around the Columbus School for Girls campus, as she painted the portrait of the CSG headmistresses, Ms. Gladden and Ms. McClure, that currently hangs in the board room.
