Throughout art history, artists have sought to understand and depict intimates spaces. Interior spaces present a host of challenges connected with light and perspective that are often avoided by less experienced painters. This is unfortunate because an interior space can be a literal window into personal tastes, societal norms and in some paintings, the human psyche. In this six-week course, students will examine and paint interior spaces both private and public. Working both from life and photo-based sources, students will develop their painting skills as they navigate the peculiarities light, colour and the depiction of space through paint. In addition, the importance of composition and paint application will be covered. Note: It is recommended that students have taken an Introduction to Painting course, plus one of the following: Fundamental Oils or Fundamental Acrylics, or have some painting experience. MEDIA: Acrylic or Oils.
