For more than a century and a half, painters have used photography to assist them in painting landscapes. Students use photographs or images of existing paintings as references, while relying on personal interpretation to make their paintings unique.

After a demonstration by the instructor, students work independently on their projects. Each student’s painting is critiqued during class using Zoom’s screen-share function.
