Capturing a Sense of Place

Several students, socially distanced, paint on a tree-lined spit of land jutting into a river on a sunny day.

Throughout the fall semester, students taking the Intermediate Painting course worked in acrylic paint on paper, media that would allow them the flexibility to paint anywhere — on campus or off, inside or outside. For six weeks, they completed one-day plein-air paintings at various sites. Here, they work on a spit of land that juts out into the Charles River, about a 10-minute walk from the Brandeis art studios.
