Because of recent events, many of us have spent more time indoors than ever before. In this class we will use our indoor surroundings for inspiration to make paintings of rooms that are imbued with much more than their actual furnishings. Interior rooms and spaces can project many personalities or moods that have an effect on our feelings. Students will learn technical aspects such as how to use the grid system for transferring photographs to canvas and using washes to lay in colors that reflect the feeling of the space. We will also study celebrated interior painters and their work such as Hopper, Vuillard, and Vermeer. Instruction will focus on painting with water media such as acrylics or watercolors.
