About the Instructor
Primarily a figurative artist, Robyn Thompson-Duong works in acrylics at her Boston studio. As a black woman raised in the suburbs of Boston and often being the only person of color growing up, Robyn knows the importance of representation and seeing one’s self in the images and people around you, hence her work depicting women of color as the main subjects of her paintings. Robyn studied visual art at Syracuse University, earning a BFA in 2002. She later went on to earn an MEd from Lesley University. Combining her passion for art with her love of teaching, Robyn has been an art teacher in both private and public institutions. Robyn was named the Museum of Fine Arts Emerging Artist Fellow for 2020.
