It’s an Inside Job: Painting Interior Spaces with Oils

  • Saturday, January 13, 2018
  • 09:00 am - 04:00 pm
  • Instructor: Robert Ross
  • Location: Main Campus
  • Fee: $195

In this two-day workshop, Robert Ross will give instruction on how to create a convincing interior space with oils. Interiors have traditionally involved domestic spaces, such as kitchens, living rooms, studios and bedrooms associated with privacy and intimacy, emotion and memory. Participants will learn to draw and paint both from direct observation and from their imagination. They will learn to capture a room’s shapes, light and dark areas, as well as depict the human living that takes place in a room. The workshop is about perceptual painting, not architectural accuracy.

Required Supplies

Special Notes

Intermediate to advanced experience with oil painting is recommended.
