Susan Hall’s Moving Home takes on new meaning in these times of sheltering-in-place. Rather than moving from home to another place, we are staying home to live, work, and survive. Her painting references “the ‘home’ inside all of us which we are always seeking, leaving, journeying to or exploring.”

We invite you to join artist Teresa Pereira for this virtual Paint Night, and to create a collage inspired by Susan Hall’s striking 1978 painting. Choose one of two versions and make it your own, in crayon or in watercolor and magazine clippings—or a combination of the two. We’ll also provide a template for the helicopter and house for you to print and use.

As you paint or draw, may we suggest a sparkling Blanc de Blanc, a Chardonnay, or a Pinot Noir from one of the many vineyards in Marin County, where Susan Hall was born and raised? Explore Marin County wines and wineries here.

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black Sharpie or any fine-tipped black marker

  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black Sharpie or any fine-tipped black marker
  • Watercolor paint (any will do)
  • Large chip brush (or house paint brush) and a watercolor brush
  • Newspaper, magazine, wrapping paper, and any printed paper scraps that have interesting photos, prints, and colors. Even paper that you’ve printed out on your computer—with a poem, miscellaneous words, etc., or written on by hand—would be fine.
