Friday Painting Seminar

This year’s painting seminar will be conducted by Tom Matus and Duane Ong.  The seminar’s innovative approach will allow each participant to select what they want to learn, and bring their own project to the seminar.  

If your next carving is using oils or acrylics, or any species, and there are areas you need assistance with, you can work on them in this seminar. Bring your own brushes, paint and decoy to learn blending techniques, paint mixture, brush uses, combing, and much more.  If you do not have a project ready to paint at the time of the seminar, silhouettes of Mallard, Widgeon, Teal, Canvasback, Redhead, and Ruddy Duck will be provided.  

This seminar will allow the participants to work hands on with Duane and Tom as well as witness and share other carver’s techniques.  

Take advantage of this opportunity and join us for a fresh, new, and more interactive seminar format that will prove to be very educational to a wider audience.
