Megan Nipp joined the VPA when she performed the title role of Annie in 2010. She was also awarded the Kris Kearsley Visual Arts scholarship in 2017. Megan’s talents have been seen on stage, in the choirs, and behind the scenes where she’s painted set pieces, props, and backdrops.
How did you get started in art?
I started taking painting lessons when I was eight and that inspired me… In high school I took more art classes… Art is something that has always come very naturally to me.
What projects have you done for the VPA and what impact have they had on what you do now?
Finn McCool and Lion King Jr. It has made me a part of productions that I don’t perform in and keeps me part of the team and connected to the productions. Also I love being a part of the community that I care about.
What are you up to now with your art?
I am currently studying arts administration and studio art at George Fox University. I would like to become a curator, art archivist and/or gallery manager in the future. I currently use my studio time to paint.
