Welcome to the Fall 2012 Semester,

Welcome to the Fall 2012 Semester,

Big changes.

This semester will mark our 14th year of teaching at the Hurinenko & Paquet Studio.  We have greatly enjoyed both teaching together and the multitude of students who have studied with us. 

Life and lease issues have brought us to move in our separate directions, and we look forward to new possibilities. 

It has been a great run. 

If you have been interested in taking a class with us, this is your chance!  We look forward to a great final semester.  We have been so fortunate to work with all of you and we thank you for that opportunity.

See you at the easel,

Thank You!

Class Descriptions

Flemish/Dutch Portrait Painting

The focus of the class will be the study of indirect methods of oil painting as exemplified by the Italian, Flemish and Dutch masters. This class will involve bistre and grisaille underpainting and glazing techniques. Learn about inner luminosity, textural differences, and atmospheric effects.
Wednesdays 9:00-Noon
Instructor: Jeff Hurinenko

Flemish/Dutch Still Life Painting

Study the techniques which made it possible for the Dutch and Flemish masters to elevate common-place objects into great works of art. The delicate balance between value and color, luminosity and atmosphere will be emphasized through the use of controlled underpaintings and subtle glazing techniques.
Wednesday 1:00-4:00
Instructor: Jeff Hurinenko

Figure Drawing

Getting to the essence and character is a vital starting point for any work of art. Speed with accuracy will be stressed. Focus will be on making good decisions, quickly, to capture the spirit of the figure.
