Figure drawing course in Florence

Learning to draw the figure is a foundation skill that is critical for all serious artists to develop, that’s why Accademia del Giglio, Art School in Florence since 1995, organizes an intensive Art workshop in Figure Drawing from October 13th to 17th 2008: 30 hours in 5 days.

This course in nude figure drawing deals with visual understanding by direct observation of the human body and it includes the acquisition of basic notions of anatomy as well as the methodology used to draw bodies and faces. Students will practice with the main drawing tools, i.e. graphite, charcoal, sanguine, pen-and-ink, pastel crayon. It is possible to combine the study of the drawing with the colour techniques such as oil or acrylic.

On every session students will draw from either female or male models posing in the nude. Quick poses will aim at teaching the sketch technique while longer poses will intend to develop the study of anatomy and of shades as well as the student’s observation abilities.

The seminar is taught both in Italian and in English.
