From Master Painter Dennis Perrin

"I encourage my students to first practice visualizing the finished painting in their mind’s eye before they even touch a brush or paint. In fact, we often begin our classes with a guided meditation that encourages them to “see” the finished painting.


I then invite them to step slightly back and see that the painting is mounted on their easel, just below is their palette covered in swirls of paint, with brushes and paraphernalia nearby. I also invite them to “see” their own hand and to realize that they are the artist that created this painting.

Through this process, the student enters the role of being the creator of this work and sets the stage for them to now “allow” the painting to come into being in real, physical terms. This simple but powerful shift takes the painting process to a whole new level!"

Any painter, regardless of level, would find in this course, revolutionary new ways of thinking about painting, as well as techniques and materials that will allow the painter to evolve to a whole new level of understanding in executing their paintings.

Painting is more than just a process of creating a piece of art. It is a state of being that has application well beyond the domain of the palette, canvas, and easel.

Dennis Perrin, a Master Painter and Teacher, with over 30 years of experience, will demonstrate the power of thought in transforming your art into a powerful expression of who you really are!


I am fond of encouraging students to be mindful of what they say about themselves and their work. Why? Because words and language encapsulate our thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and emotions. When we use language to express ourselves, we create momentum and generate greater energy from the thought that’s behind the words and phrases we choose. 

So if we want to shift the energy in our vibrational makeup, language is a good place to start. When choosing words that point in the direction of what we want instead of back toward what we don’t want, we generate energy that opens new doors and leaves behind unwanted habits of thought and action.

- Dennis Perrin

Hear from The Perrin Method™ Students:

There is no doubt that learning the Perrin Method has improved my painting skills . The calm manner of presentation, visualization and reflective thoughts of our instructor have led me to a higher level on the ‘reason’ why I want to paint and gives me determined purpose to continue to learn and to grow. I have enjoyed this plein air experience immensely. I felt like I was right there with you at the pond and watching Aimee chase squirrels at the park. Besides the technical aspects of the course, it was the genuine camaraderie that uplifted my spirits and gave me that eagerness to learn more and put it into action. I was not able to get outdoors as much as I would have liked but there are days and months ahead with plein air from my window. Blessings to all of you.

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.
Dennis, This course (and the other one I took) have been amazing.  I’ve learned so much, changed so much, love the water soluble oils, changed my whole studio set up, the way I think about painting, etc. Can’t thank you enough and everyone who participates as well. So much gratitude.
— K.L.

"You only have available to you some simple materials: paint in tubes, a palette, brushes, a painting ground like canvas or gessoed panel, and two dimensions. Yet, with these limited materials, and a profound understanding of the importance of value, abstraction, and the relationships of abstract value shapes, you can create vibrant, shimmering, powerful paintings that beam with the illusion of light."

– Dennis Perrin



About Master Painter Dennis Perrin

DP-bubble image.png

Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called an American Impressionist Painter in the Boston School tradition, and that is not surprising since among his greatest influences are the American Painters John Singer Sargeant, Edmund Tarbell, and Frank Benson, as well as the French painter Henri Fantin-Latour. Other major influences have been Diego Velasquez, Johannes Vermeer,  Thomas Dewing, Maxfield Parrish, Joseph DeCamp, and so many others.

A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothed and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. Though not as frequently seen in his work, Perrin is an avid plein air painter of the New England landscape.
