A free fine art demonstration by Buck Braden, a celebrated artists and historian.
Mr. Braden has been an artist and historian all of his life. Drawing figures, faces, horses and ships was the natural thing for him to do. He attended Fort Hays State University where he studied painting, printmaking, ceramics and design, and minored in history. Buck received his B.A. in 1969, then spent the next two years in the Army as an illustrator. He returned to Fort Hays where he taught Fundamentals of Art and Printmaking while he obtained a Masters in Art. He continued drawing, painting and ceramics through the 11 years he spent teaching fine arts in Kansas at the high school level. Maritime exhibits are on display in San Diego and Long Beach, California and sold at several galleries in Newport Beach.
