    Plein air painting is truly painting from life. Living moving changing light could be daunting. Mark Brown makes it doable. He chooses locations and shows how to select a composition. He then demonstrates creating the composition while describing choices in , color, value. Going from student to student He has special ability to know just what information and guidance to give each person as needed in their level. Talented painter, gifted teacher he is kind,caring, respectful and professional. Mark has created an atmosphere of camaraderie and friendship. I have seen tremendous growth in those students who regularly attend Mark's class for he has given them the tools to bring out their individual essence. Mark Brown is a true Hawaii treasure.

    I look forward to taking the summer>
    I was so grateful to be able to participate in the au plain air classes. I have owned several of your paintings and have admired your work for the past 16 years that I have moved to Hawaii. It was such an honor and privilege to have you as a teacher and be in such an inspiring class. It is a dream come true in my retirement. The class is such a positive learning environment and the students are also so supportive. I look forward to learning more with each class. Thanks for the encouragement to pursue my dream.

    I have totally enjoyed the experience of Mark Brown’s plein air (painting outside) class. Upon retiring to Oahu I looked for other outside activities in addition to golfing and walking on Kailua beach. After taking watercolor painting and acrylic painting through the Honolulu Museum of Art School, I was introduced to Mark Brown and the plein air journey began. I joined his Saturday morning class and began oil painting at different locations around the island. So in addition to learning how to paint outside with oil paint/easel, we visit the most beautiful sites on the island. It just doesn’t get any better than painting at a botanical garden, a historical site, or on a windy, sunny, beach with sand blowing onto your painting. It is so much fun that I also paint outside on Tuesdays and sometimes Thursdays.

    Mark starts his Saturday class with a one-hour demonstration of painting on site. He is a fantastic painter/teacher and inspires and motivates both the novice and experienced painter. His demonstration of technique and nuggets of information are interspersed with a great sense of humor.

    This will be my third year of attending the class and others have taken it even longer. It is not only a class but a gathering of friends and colleagues which make the experience especially rewarding. Many attendees now participate in art shows and sell their paintings. If you want to have fun and a great experience with plein air painting, Mark Brown’s class is for you.

    I have just signed up for Mark Brown's 2017 Summer painting class, and wanted to re-state my gratitude and excitement for being able to continue my on-going education under Mark's knowledgeable and entertaining direction.

    As a returning student (I've lost track of how many years I've been in his class), not only do I continue to learn useful techniques for both acrylic and oil painting (and drawing as well), but I also enjoy hearing about Mark's adventures that he experiences as a dedicated, full-time professional artist.

    His love of Hawaii and his passion for depicting it's beauty and uniqueness is truly inspiring. His enthusiasm is infectious and he has attracted a group of perennial students like myself who have signed up for his classes year after year. I look forward to every class with great anticipation and wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't have those Saturday morning plein air painting expeditions.

    Mark has inspired me to try to capture the flavor of Hawaii's people and their history and it is my continuing great pleasure to render some of Hawaii's landmarks in my paintings. I have included a painting of Kewalo Basin's Fisherman's Wharf and Haleiwa's Aoki Shave Ice store (sadly, now both gone). Robert Dusendschon
