October 24 @ 10:00 am 2:30 pm

< Back to Workshops

Tuesdays, October 24-December 5, 10am-2:30pm (half hour lunch break at noon)

6 sessions | $650 for members $685 for non-members

Power up your painting practice by learning new strategies and concepts for discovering or enhancing a strong personal style.

In this six-week course meeting once a week, we will address the specific goals and challenges of making large-scale paintings or multi-size paintings in a series, over an extended period of time. Students may start on a new body of work or revisit a project already underway.

Each session will include demonstrations of preparatory methods such as canvas stretching, priming, tinting, and investigating alternative painting surfaces followed by technical explorations in color mixing and paint application. One-on-one meetings and kind group critique will create a supportive environment for growing as an artist. Classical and Contemporary notable painters from the PAAM collection and beyond will be viewed and discussed. Students may work with any type of water or oil-based paint. All levels of painting are welcome from the beginner to the seasoned painter.


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.
