Painting the Figure

from 67.00

September 23, 3–6 pm

Join artist and Great River Arts staff member Matt Duckett for an afternoon as we explore painting the figure and portrait from life. All skill levels are welcome and will feel comfortable in this workshop. Topics include creating a palette, composition, drawing, likeness, color mixing, edges and brush work.

 

Matt Duckett has exhibited across the United States and internationally, in galleries including the Salmagundi Club in NYC and Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ. He has been recognized with awards and multiple national publications for excellence in art, including Fine Art Connoisseur and Poets & Artists. He has created bodies of work that explore various subcultures and marginalized peoples, from Scandanavian traditional lifestyles in rural Wisconsin, to Chicago's unique Irish musical heritage, to displaced aboriginal tribes in the remote mountains of the Philippines. Matt weaves storytelling and characterization together with a mastery of technique to create portraits that go beyond likeness with their layers of meaning, story and atmosphere.
