PAINTING AND THE DOMESTIC NARRATIVE
12 Sessions >> Saturdays, September 17–December 3
10am–1pm, Studio 116, $530
This intermediate/advanced painting course will explore ideas surrounding the domestic, “home” and family using psychology and emotion as impetuses to create and resolve a final mini-series of paintings around those themes. Students are encouraged to reference photography and memory, paying particular attention to space, objects and people that connect the artwork to the personal. Slide lectures and readings will provide contemporary and historical context for discussion of the medium as a story-telling device.

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.
SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
