The Nature of Space: Weeklong Intensive

Through careful study of still life and landscape we will study the nature of small and large spaces and seek to recreate our sense of space through perspective, saturation of color and value contrast. Still life will act as a stage to sharpen our ability to organize an effective space so that we may apply this understanding to the great outdoors.

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:
