Frank Lennartz will demonstrate oil painting at the Jan. 15, 2018 meeting of the Santa Clarita Artists Association. This event is free, open to the public and meets at 6:30 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 23630 Valencia Blvd., Valencia 91355.
The main theme of Lennartz’s demonstration will be “The Allure of Water: Breaking the Myth that Water is a Difficult Subject to Paint.”
“One of my favorite quotes is by Edgar Degas: ‘Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do,’” Lennartz said.
He currently teaches two ongoing oil painting classes every week in Montrose and Agoura Hills.
Lennartz studied extensively with Ted Goerschner and several other contemporary masters, developing his style of capturing light and color on canvas, emphasizing the impression or mood of the moment reflected by the landscape. To see more of Lennartz’ works, click here.
Lennartz received the prestigious Director’s Choice Award presented by the Carnegie Art Museum, where his painting “A Trek in the Foothills” is part of their permanent collection.
His paintings have been exhibited throughout Southern California including in many of the California Art Club’s Gold Medal Exhibitions, the On Location in Malibu exhibitions held at the Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University in Malibu, and at The Old Mill in San Marino.
Lennartz is an Artist Member of the California Art Club.
