English: I was born in Havana, Cuba in 1955, I graduated in Graphic Design and I studied Art History at the University of Havana. As a teaching artist, my goal is to create a collaborative and exploratory learning environment. Understanding the Visual Arts, the main focus is the visual language and culture, the structuring of new images and ways of thinking, and the use of the visual arts as a means of self-expression and development of creativity. My instructional style provides a framework that allows participants to learn and use the skills to express their individual vision. After several years working as an artist and teacher in Denmark, I moved to Switzerland where I continue to teach and actively present my work in collective and individual exhibitions.
Español:Nací en La Habana, Cuba en 1955, me licencié en Diseño Gráfico y estudié Historia del Arte en la Universidad de La Habana. Como artista docente, mi objetivo es crear un entorno de aprendizaje colaborativo y exploratorio. Comprendiendo las Artes Visuales, el enfoque principal es el lenguage visual y la cultura, la estructuración de nuevas imágenes y formas de pensar, y la utilización de las artes visuales como medio de autoexpresión y desarrollo de la creatividad. Mi estilo de instrucción proporciona un marco que permite a los participantes aprender y emplear las habilidades para expresar su visión individual. Después de varios años trabajando como artista y maestra en Dinamarca, me mudé a Suiza donde continúo enseñando y presentando activamente mi trabajo en exposiciones colectivas e individuales.

Enjoy a Fun and Colorful Afternoon in Zurich!
Abstract painting with acrylics is a wonderful gateway for satisfying artistic expression you can work with colors, dots, lines, shapes and textures and create a personal visual rhythm in a painting but you can also feel free and work in the intuitive way, gestural, you also can explore the layering techniques.
Beside the fun and relaxing part, what is the creativity workshop about?
It is not our goal to get through a first step becoming a professional artist, neither is our intention to make you paint the new definition of modern art. We want to make painting and creating more accessible for everybody, by providing an inspiring („artsy“) environment where people can slow down, unwind and express themselves with no aim for performance. We believe that an environment as such is an ideal one to unleash your creativity. Rolando, who is been an artist and a teacher for over 40 years, is looking forward to assist you to enjoy this unique experience.
