Ken Christensen Workshops
One student's experience
Here is a comment by participant Laurel Sherrie, an outstanding painter in her own right:
Plein Air Workshop June 25-28, 2013
Join master fauvist painter Ken Christensen for four days of on-site fun and instruction. Each day participants will paint on-site at a different locale among Ken's favorite sites on California's Central Coast. Subject matter will change day by day as the class will assemble to paint along the spectacular coast, deep in the rolling hills of wine country, in one of San Luis Obispo's historic old neighborhoods, or in the ranchland featuring beautiful old barns. Ken will paint a demonstration each day, explaining his techniques and approach to the subject. In addition Ken enlivens his classes with many amusing anecdotes form his long career of painitng around the United States and in Europe. Each artist is encouraged to paint the subject of their choice. Ken will circulate and give personal attention to each participant in bringing out the best in each artist's personal style. All levels of ability are welcome and can profit from Ken's direct and comprehensive advice.
Classes will be in the afternoons from 1:30 to 5:30 each day. A welcoming luncheon party is included the first day at noon at Ken's studio to enable all the artists to get to know each other. Entrnace fees are $380 for four days. A $50 deposit is sufficient to reserve a place. Class size is limited to guarantee the quality of the experience. Feel free to call or email with any further questions. (805) 528 1498
