The Perrin Method™, created by Master Painter Dennis Perrin.
A virtual course with Dennis Perrin and team is more than just teaching about technique and picture making. It's a comprehensive experience on how to think about painting, where a painting comes from, a self-examination of the question "Why Paint?" as well as a thorough exploration of color, value, temperature, technique and materials.
Joining a Perrin Method™ Course ensures a complete exposure to the lineage of the great painters historically, and an immersion in the full enjoyment of the Creative Process. By teaching students to imagine and visualize their completed paintings, Perrin provides the student with an infallible road map to the successful completion of any creative project.
"Manifesting a painting is no different than manifesting any other experience in our lives."
– Dennis Perrin

"I have studied with many nationally known painters. But this class and its cutting edge presentation has truly been inspirational. Reviewing the videos numerous times has finally cemented a process that is entirely new to me! Dennis' commentary also has led me to a whole new way of thinking in the abstract so that I am painting the essence of a subject, not a realistic rendition. I am excited beyond words and am looking forward to the next segment." - C.D.
