One-week Art workshop of Portrait tecniques

Next summer Accademia del Giglio will organize a Portrait (and self-portrait) workshop in Florence on the following date:

June 7th – 11th 2010
Expiring date for enrollment: May 14th 2010

This course is mainly an intensive study of the physiognomy. Through making rapid strokes in pencil (or charcoal) students will learn how to portray the essential features of a human face, and through more elaborate drawings they will focus on details, on the effect of light and shade (“the chiaroscuro”), as well as on the psychological value of facial expression.

Colour techniques will be then taught by using either pastel or oil or also acrylic. Students will acquire good skills and abilities for painting the shades of complexion, the position of hands and the glittering of the eyes, which most of the great artists used to consider the “soul’s mirror”.

The workshop is meant not only for capable students who wish to improve their style and their creativeness, but also for those people whose aim is to discover the fundamentals of the portrait and its secrets. That is why most of the time during classes every student will be tutored individually.

The course has a duration of 5 days, from Monday to Friday, for a total amount of 30 hours of tuition. Two life models and copies of classical portraits will be available throughout the workshop.

More summer workshops 2010, detailed informations for enrolments and lot more on AdG webpage.
