MEET   THE   NEWEST   FACULTY:

 

JANET  ONOFREY

 

 

“Ditto” by Janet Onofrey

 

Janet Onofrey started teaching this summer at the Boca Raton Museum. In the fall she will be teaching painting on Fridays and an evening class on perspective drawing. Janet is a perceptual painter, painting from direct observation. Her paintings capture the specific light and mood of South Florida.

 

Beginning Drawing With Janet Onofrey

 

 

 

She seeks out the silent spaces of early morning back alleys or quiet suburban neighborhoods. Her paintings were feature in the Cultural Quarterly Magazine last summer after she was awarded the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship.

 

 

Still Life Set-Up with Janet Onofrey

 

Janet is a natural teacher, she loves sharing her technique with students and delights in those moments when the students ‘get it’, when they understand her lessons on drawing and color and put it altogether.  For beginners Janet sets up still-lifes designed for students to learn how color interacts and the pleasure of successfully painting what you see.

For more information on Janet’s artwork visit her website http://www.janetonofrey.com

 

 

 

 

 

RENÉE PLEVY

 

“Racquel” by Renée Plevy

 

 

Starting in September, Renée Plevy will be teaching portrait painting using oils. In oil paint you can capture the light and subtleties of skin tone that cannot be achieved with quick drying acrylics. With years of experience teaching, Renée presents a simplified method of block out the form and building up tones that even the absolute beginner feels confident in painting their first portrait.

 

 

 

 
Renée Plevy is an acclaimed portrait painter that has painted hundreds of commissioned portraits over the past 30 years. Like many accomplished artists, Renée studied with a number of leading figurative painters in New York to glean from each of them in order to develop her own style. 

 

 

” Countess de Hoernle” by Renée Plevy

She maintained a studio at 41 Union Square and taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before relocating to South Florida.  In 2012 Renée founded the “Portrait of a Woman” charitable event that honors women community leaders. Renée has painted 23 portraits of the honorees include the Countess de Hoernle.
