Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present renowned, local artist, Ken Christensen, for a two-day workshop Feb. 8 and 9. Christensen is a classic, on-site landscape painter influenced by French Impressionists and Fauves. He paints with the vision, color, and verve of such painters as Van Gogh, Vlaminck, Marquet and Derain, and the American perspective of Hopper and Benton. Mr. Christensen attended Michigan State University where he earned a B.A. in History. He participated in an overseas study program at Bedford College, London and attended the University of Manchester in England. Ken settled in Traverse City, Michigan, where he pursued a career as a freelance artist and writer for the local newspaper. Ken later returned to Europe and launched himself on a long bicycle trip, crossing Holland, Belgium and France. He settled in Sollies-Pont on the Cote d' Azur and later moved to Paris. While in Paris, Ken attended life drawing classes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and was also an official copyist at the Louvre Museum. In 1986 he moved to San Sebastian, Spain, where he continued to paint and taught English at a private academy. Ken eventually returned to the United States settling in Los Osos, CA where he currently resides. Ken has been represented by galleries in France and Italy. His book, St. Tropez, Notes et Croquis de Voyages, was published in 1984 and his paintings have been featured on the cover of the Daniel Smith catalogue, Artist's Sketchbook Magazine and local publications. Ken is the founder of The New Fauves, committed to propagating the style of the great French Fauve painters. This workshop is appropriate for beginner to advanced.
