The demonstration by oil painter Tom Soltesz for our March 12th program promises to be both entertaining and educational. “I am able to talk while I paint and explain what I am doing while I am doing it. I also am able to answer questions while I paint.” He specializes in the California landscape and plans to use one of his 9” x 12” paintings to produce another one 20” x 24”.
Tom is a member of the California Art Club and has won numerous awards in plein air competitions. His work is widely collected in many prestigious galleries, and he is listed in the Library of Congress as a “Living Legend of California.”
He also offers plein air workshops teaching his special techniques and participates in many plein air events. https://thestudioshop.com/artist/tom-soltesz

Programs are free and open to the public at the El Cerrito Community Center 7007 Moeser Lane.
