Three-day Landscape Oil Painting Workshop

Submitted By Sachie Johns

The Fremont Art Association is pleased to present an enriching painting workshop with an accomplished landscape oil painter, Mark Monsarrat, Friday - Sunday, April 27 - 29, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., at The Fremont Art Centre. The fee is $300. Monsarrat, noted as a tonal-colorist, is a longtime plein-aire (outdoor) and studio landscape painter in the Craftsman style, following the classic Early California painters, and Impressionists. The artist holds a BFA in Drawing from the California College of the Arts, and an MFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

The three-day workshop will cover hands-on knowledge and experience with tonal-colorist approach to create amazingly rich, sensitive landscape paintings from a limited palette of just the six colors from the Newtonian color wheel plus white. Classes will begin with lecture/ demonstration indoors and move outdoors, weather permitting, for guided painting. Bring a piece or two of your paintings for private review in the beginning. Group critiques will be held each afternoon after paintings have been completed for the day, so everyone can benefit from each others' efforts.

For details and to register, please call Simone Archer, (510) 793-9431 or e-mail: A supply list will be provided after the registration.
