Studio Nights

Wednesdays, November 29 – December 13, 5 – 8pm 

3 sessions  | $30/session, $80 total for all three


This three-part series pairs art history and hands-on instruction in our print studio to explore feminist themes and strategies in art-making, such as text-based art, appropriation, and working in multiples.

We begin with a dynamic slide talk, Overlooking Images: Feminist Art since 1970, which centers on themes of identity, race, and privilege. We follow the talk with an evening of collage making to get ideas out on paper. The next two weeks we will learn some simple monotype print-making strategies, which we will then combine with more advanced collage techniques using the press. 

This series is in conjunction with a Recent Gifts to the Permanent Collection exhibition, which features the work of Alicia Henry and Sky Power, among others. Participants are welcome to arrive at 4:30pm, so they have time to walk through the PAAM exhibitions before the workshop begins at 5pm.

All levels of experience are welcome!

PAAM Studio Nights are a series of three weeknight events in which participants come together to enjoy artmaking in PAAM’s studios, as well as the occasional artist talk or art history slide talk. Each series features a local teaching artist who demonstrates a variety of techniques, with plenty of time after the demos for participants to create and share art. Participants may attend one event in the series, or all three. 

With less of a time and monetary commitment than PAAM’s main adult education program, PAAM Studio Nights welcomes a broad range of year-round Cape residents and visitors alike.


Megan Hinton (American, b. 1974) is a painter known for reconfiguring genres of landscape, figurative, and object painting.  Her art utilizes appropriation from painting’s history along with found and discarded material to investigate line, color, shape, surface, and scale. This fusion of subject and formalism spans further to her work in collage, sculpture, installation, photography, and performance.  Megan holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary arts from Mills College where she won the Hung Lui Painting Prize. She has received residency fellowships from Twenty Summers in Provincetown and The Frans Masereel Centrum in Belgium. She is the recent recipient of the Alice C. Cole ‘42 Merit Grant from Wellesley College. Megan is also an art educator, curator, and writer.
