Short Stories Inspired by Great Paintings

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Have you ever stood before a painting and wondered about the story it tells? Join us as we imagine the untold stories within various artworks by some of the greatest artists including Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Winslow Homer, Vincent van Gogh, Grant Wood, and more. Each week we will read two or three short stories inspired by the various artworks and written by award-winning authors including Jeffrey Deaver, Jane Hamilton, Michael Connelly, Sara Paretsky, and Joyce Carol Oates. Members will lead a discussion on the qualities of the literature and the creative art. Supplemental materials will be provided including helpful checklists about reading short stories and appreciating art. There will be an optional trip to the Art Institute and lunch together at a local restaurant. We will read two short story anthologies: Alive in Shape and Color (Pegasus Books, 2017), and From Sea To Stormy Sea (Pegasus Books, 2019).
