The Ken Auster Painting Mentorship Fund
In lieu of flowers, Paulette and Ken would like donations made to: The Ken Auster Painting Mentorship Fund at the Orange County School of the Arts; Visual Arts Conservatory.
These Funds will only be used for student painting supplies and future painting workshops. Over the past several years the Painting students from the Orange County School of the Arts in Santa Ana visited Ken Auster’s studio on Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach, California. They sat mesmerized while he demonstrated how to develop a painting. Ken planned to continue "giving back" to the next generation of young painters as he recognized the need to mentor talented young artists from economically challenged families. He desired to teach them "to make a Passion Sandwich.”
