Continue your portrait studies with MCAC Instructor Billie Jean Hill in this six week advanced class! Featuring a greater emphasis on the rich history of portraiture, we will focus on three great historic portrait painters and recreate works from the past in order to learn from the masters. This class is for students who have taken the beginner course with Billie Jean or with Dale Evans and want to expand their skills as a portrait painter.

In this course, students can expect to complete three finished portraits based on masterworks, cultivating a greater understanding about the context of the art that informs our practices today. Supplemental drawing assignments outside of class will again augment student’s progress and assist Billie in determining student’s needs as the course unfolds. All necessary supplies will be provided by the art center, however students are encouraged to bring whatever tools they feel most comfortable using if they already paint at home.

*All materials are provided: paints, brushes, painting surfaces, palettes, knives, etc.  

Mission Statement: We encourage and promote the appreciation, study, cultivation, development, and practice of art for the benefit of all the people, cultures and communities of McLean County.
