Megan Hines, MA
Instructor of Art Education
Megan Hines, MA, is instructor of art education at Graceland University. She graduated from Graceland in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a K-12 Teaching Endorsement. While teaching 7-12 art at Milan C-2 Schools for seven years, Hines obtained a Master of Arts in Art Education from Boston University.
Hines has been teaching for over ten years and recently completed her third year teaching 6-12 art at her alma mater, Putnam County R-1 in Unionville, Missouri. Active in the Missouri Art Education Association (MAEA), Hines represents District 2 and presents at fall and spring state conferences. Through the MAEA, Hines is honored to be the 2018 Secondary Art Educator of the year.
Although Hines does not have a lot of studio time for herself, she does enjoy painting and photography. Her photograph "Last Hymn" was exhibited in the National Art Education Gallery in 2017.
When not teaching high school or college courses, Hines spends time with her two children, Carleigh, 13 and Tyler, 5. Her children keep her busy with softball, student council and martial arts classes. An addition to the family is a 70-pound lap dog named Diesel – a very protective Catahoula and Lab mix.
“I am so excited to be teaching for Graceland. I hope I am as influential as the professors that I had while attending GU.”
