This class will study the beautiful and expansive space we see while gazing through a window. Students will work from home to find a subject anywhere from a familiar landscape to the light streaming into a beloved room. We will use drawing and color studies to experiment with ways of seeing this space, and these studies will inform a larger final painting. Can be taken independently or as a second part to Painting the Interior. Experience with drawing and painting in oil or acrylic is required. Oil paint is the preferred medium, but students who are comfortable using acrylic are welcome to do so.

This class will meet online using Zoom. The Zoom link and information on how to join will be emailed to you. Please also check your spam folder. If you register 12 hours or less before the class begins or after the start date, please contact zoom@ccae.org for the link.


Jeremy Durling


Jeremy Durling began to draw and paint from the figure at the age of sixteen through a high school dual enrollment program. He received an Associates Degree from the Mount Wachusett Community College with a concentration in painting under John Pacheco. He moved on to Massachusetts College of Art, where Nancy Mccarthy and Christopher Chippendale would become his mentors. It was at Massart that Jeremy first studied with George Nick. Massart’s prestigious George Nick prize allowed Jeremy to spend 5 months seeing Europe and studying in Florence. He graduated from Massart with a BFA in painting in 2009, and continued his lessons with George independently. He studied with George for a total of four years. Jeremy is represented in Boston by the Sloane Merrill Gallery. Website: jeremydurling.com
