BOUT MEGAN
Megan Craver has been painting for over eight years. She holds a degree in Fine Art Painting with a minor in Art History. Her education began while studying under the classical master Myron Barnstone, from whom she learned the Golden Section method of composition, which is based around Sacred Geometry, as well as Fletcher Color Theory in relation to painting. Throughout her art education Megan took many classes in anatomy, which bolstered her understanding of the human figure. Once in college she studied abroad in Rome, Italy for an entire year and in this time had a solo showing of her paintings in Barcelona, Spain. Megan Craver has participated in many solo and group shows since and continues to practice her art in Crested Butte, Colorado. As well as teaching classes for the Crested Butte Art Studio.
