The Heritage Sandy Springs Museum is proud to display our newest art installation, entitled Painting from Life. The works displayed are representative samples of the Painting from Life class, which is part of several core fine art classes offered at the Dorothy C. Benson Multipurpose Senior Complex. The focus of the class is to paint from a live subject or location, which challenges the students to make quick but accurate observations and translate them to the canvas. Participants tend to paint locally to capture the world they are familiar with and live in daily. Heritage Green is one of the students’ favorite places to paint; it offers a variety of subjects from plants and flowers to the Sandy Springs Society Gazebo, Heritage Sandy Springs Museum, and – of course – the original Sandy Springs. We invite you to enjoy this original artwork, depicting the beautiful and historic grounds of Heritage Green, on display until March of 2019.
