IN-PERSON: Power Painting with Megan Hinton

October 13th, 20th, 27th, November 3rd, 10th, and 17th | Wednesdays, 9am to 2:30 | 6 sessions | $750 for members, $800 for non members

In this six-week course, students will meet once a week to learn empowering strategies, concepts, and techniques to begin or re-approach painting. With these tools, we will address the specific goals and challenges of making large-scale work, or multi-size works in a series, over an extended period of time. Students will find a through line between singular paintings to develop a personal style and body of multiple works. Each session will include demonstrations of preparatory methods, color mixing, and application techniques. One-on-one and group evaluations of class outcomes will occur. Classical and Contemporary notable painters 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.

Masks will be required for all indoor, outdoor and plein air workshops at PAAM, regardless of vaccination status.
