John’s World

Our week at Canadore taking Landscape Painting with John Molnar
was a rewarding and entertaining experience.

John’s approach to painting is a unique and workable style
which can be easily used to develop a composition.

We discovered the importance of and the difference between
positive and negative shapes. Then through observation
we a created a monochromatic colour scheme. And finally we
applied local colour and final details to complete our paintings.

John’s fun personality was such a bonus, and he always
shared his wealth of information with humour.

He demonstrated art as a life skill. And now,
we are going home tired and happy with our art experience.”

Private Art Instruction

Over the years John had many private art students.  He was a walking encyclopedia of art – methods, materials and history – and a very gifted teacher.  All his students miss him terribly, but say they never pick up a paintbrush without thinking of John…
