Glenview Art League

A Community Organization

Monthly Demo Meetings


Tuesday, October 02, 2018 for a Painting Demonstration with Jason Michael Bentley!  

Jason is a Winsor & Newton™ local artist living and working in Chicago. He specializes and demonstrates the dynamics of oil and water colour in the context of the portrait and figure. Using a photograph or live model as a reference, he delivers approachable methods for building paintings that capture the vividness and personality of the subject. Jason builds on relationships and brand awareness by promoting the expressive and technical capabilities of the Winsor & Newton pigments, brushes, and mediums.

Jason grew up in Champaign/Urbana IL. He took up art at a very young age to invite inspiration from within. A curious, but a very private child, he happily retreated inward and focused on skill/disciplined based activities, emerging time to time to show his efforts to friends and family. Copying cartoon characters from video game instruction booklets and comic books became the early foundation, maturing into his skills, and experimenting with new materials and approaches as he studied art and design at Parkland community college and the University of Illinois. He is currently working as a freelance graphic designer, teacher, and exhibiting artist in Chicago.
