Two Great Groups, One Great Event

Hello Urban Sketchers! Hope all is well and that you are enjoying the outdoors with less restrictions. Let’s hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

We have a great opportunity on June 19th to meet local Plein Air Artist Mark Brown and his Master class as we all paint together at Kekaulike Market in Chinatown. This is an amazing opportunity for us Urban Sketchers to learn techniques from a master and meet other talented artists that paint outdoors all over Oahu. Mark has chosen a perfect place for our collaboration that’s colorful and bursting with urban life.

This event will be unlike our previous outings. We will meet 8-9am as a group while Mark will teach invaluable skills to capture lighting, colors, and movement on canvas. From 9 to 11:30, you will have 2 1/2 to draw and paint the marketplace. Then at 11:30, we will gather for critique and sharing.

There is municipal parking at the Kekaulike Courtyard at 1016 Maunakea Street $3.00 for the entire day.

If attending, please email us at uskoahu@gmail.com by Friday, June 18th with your name and phone number. We will retain the list for contact tracing purposes. Also, as per State of Hawaii’s COVID-19 guidelines, you will not be required to wear a face covering as we will be outdoors. But please be consider of others around you and stay home if you feel sick.

About Mark Brown

Named as one of the few Plein Air Artists in Hawaii, Mark has been painted for nearly 40 years. He teaches Plein Air at University of Hawaii and is featured in Hawaii Art Galleries across the state. You may have seen his paintings at the Hilton Hawaiian Village or his 60×300’ mural at South Shore Marketplace. He is an accomplished award-winning artist and art instructor.

Here are photos I took of Mark’s class on May 29th at He’eia State Park. It was such a fun day and everyone was so friendly and incredibly talented.
