Instructor: Megan Miller
Subject matter from nature is always an inspiration for artists. Learn the drawing and painting skills you need to create works of art inspired by nature and the outdoors. Create work in the galleries, terrace sculptures, and near the fountains, plants, stone walls, and the labyrinth on the Museum grounds.
Students entering grades 4 through 9 in fall 2019 are invited to register for this class.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch and snacks for full day programs.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.

She has worked with the Michener since 2006, first as a college intern, then as a teaching assistant, and currently as an adjunct staff member. She teaches a variety of classes during the summer including Fabulous Fives, All About Art, and Drawing and Painting. She is also an art teacher in the Pennsbury School District, teaching at the middle school level. Her large scale paintings are inspired by nature; she works primarily in oils and watercolors. “Megan always encourages my son, and listens to his concerns, excitement and questions. She is playful and funny but also patient and understanding. She’s the reason he’s loved the Michener Art Camps, and we scour the brochure looking for her name when we sign up.”
