Hey Kickstarter, My name is Megan Chin and I'm a figurative artist. I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA in Painting. Originally from Jacksonville, Florida I'm currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
Recently, I received a partial scholarship to a month-long artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center (VSC). This is an exciting opportunity to meet many fellow artists from around the world as well as focus on a whole new body of work!
Tuition to attend VSC is $4,000. I was awarded enough scholarship to cover close to half of that. I’m hoping to raise $2,300 to help cover the remaining cost of attending the program. Any additional funds raised are much needed for travel to and from Vermont, the purchase of art supplies and the shipping of artworks.
Listed on the sidebar are some amazing rewards as a token of my appreciation for your support. They include one of a kind nature studies which will be created during my time at VSC as well as commissioned portraits of the person of your choosing. If you don't know what to get your mom for the holidays this is a great opportunity for you to not only check that present off your list but also feel the satisfaction of knowing you helped support a great cause!

Please donate what you can and share my kickstarter with friends. Thank you so much for your support! This amazing experience wouldn't be possible without you!
BIG thanks to the absolutely wonderful Tyler Naugle for helping me make my video and for my cats cooperating and not ending up in my video.
Risks and challenges
My goal is set at $2,300 to help cover the tuition to attend VSC. That amount unfortunately goes to VSC directly and I am still in need of assistance to cover the cost of traveling to and from Vermont, materials and supplies as well as the high cost of shipping artwork home. I'm currently paying for these things out of pocket, so any additional funds raised will go towards those items!
The Vermont Studio Center doesn't just provide space. It provides artists who really want to discover their true potential the opportunity to do so.
Drawing and Painting are my passion and I am so ready to create. With your support you'll provide the funds needed to attend this artist residency and also provide me the foundation to reach my true potential. Thank you!
