What's Included

Instructor: Tom Page Portrait painting has experienced a revival in recent years. This class will offer an introduction to portrait painting with watercolor paints. Materials, technical skills and color theory will be the emphasis on this six-week class. Demonstrations and visual discussion of current painting professionals will take the mystery out of the magic of oil painting. This is an excellent opportunity to begin a path toward knowledgeable and skilled representational painting of all subject matter. You should have strong drawing skills to enroll in this class or complete the beginning/intermediate drawing class before you enroll in the portrait painting class. This group will be supportive and encouraging; come join us! Students will bring their own materials or the instructor can lend materials to students for an extra $25.

About This Organizer

MacRostie Art Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to community growth through the arts in northern Minnesota. The MAC exists to support and advance the work of professional artists in our region and build a community that recognizes, appreciates and celebrates art. We believe that art is central to the quality of life in northern Minnesota – as it is everywhere – and that the artists who create, sell, and exhibit art play a vital role in society. Art is not a luxury, but an important engine for economic growth and community development.


With these values at our core, MacRostie Art Center presents exhibitions, workshops, classes, festivals, lectures, and other activities to engage the community in the arts. We support artists by providing a well-established venue for exhibition and sale of work. We work to keep the arts visible as a defining part of the community.


MacRostie Art Center is an active and involved member of the community that has been our home for over fifty years. We work collaboratively with social groups and agencies, educators, and other arts organizations on projects that reflect our shared objectives. It is the goal of the MAC that our services will reach all segments of the community, our efforts will enhance the status of northern Minnesota as an arts destination, and the artists who live and work here will be supported and valued.
